Analysis the different of a mother and a non-mother I can’t imagine my life without my daughter, but there is a big different in being a mother and not be a mother. I have so many great moments with my daughter being in my life. I also remember how my life was before I have a child. I was always the type of person that says I would never have kids. I was the last one out of my entire friend to get a child.
When I heard her heartbeat there was a feeling that I had to do everything I could to keep that heartbeat healthy and strong. As August came along I found out that I was having a beautiful little girl. Me and my boyfriend were so happy but scared; because she was a girl to us girls are a bigger responsibility than boys. We both had a fear of her growing up too fast and ending up pregnant just like her mother. But one thing we knew is that we would be great parents to her, and give her the attention and love we both really never got from our family.
I felt like I never had any help because whenever my husband was home my baby would not stay quiet with him. I would just sit and cry all night long, which eventually caused me to become overwhelmed and depressed. Being in school so young married with a kid and husband was causing me to have problems with my husband because I never had time for him anymore. I would spend anytime I had in between taking care of the baby and house chores doing homework. I was out of the house for four to six hours three times a week.
I did a lot of babysitting as a young teen and often envisioned myself as the mom of the children I babysat. At family gatherings, I was always the one to hold the babies and play with the toddlers. I always loved children and was innately very nurturing. . However, all of this romanticizing about motherhood never quite prepared me for this leading role.
Professional Nursing Reflection Amber N. Ratcliff University of Wyoming My main goal in life has always been to do something great, to make an impact on this world and to be a role model for others. I have always been eager to help. I have been a caregiver for as long as I can remember, being the oldest of 5 children. I remember as a child receiving a donation request in the mail with a picture of an orphan from some third world country. I clipped the picture and saved it.
So it made the homelessness that much harder on me. I had become very depressed during the first few months after my son was born. He was diagnosed as having infant colic, so we barely slept. I already did not really know how to handle the crying/screaming at all hours. So his status just added to my frustration.
I told my mom when I got back from the doctor. It was really hard to tell her because I told her I was only going to have one kid. When I did, we cried together, and then I told her what I wanted to do with the baby and she supported me 100%. She knows what a hard time I had with my son and she did not want to see me go through that all over again. It took me a while to call the numbers, but when I did I was really scared and nervous.
Growing Up Too Fast I always knew I wanted to be a mother; I just never planned on having a child while I was still a child. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I was going to have to deal with a lot. I no longer could act or think only about myself. From that point on, I was responsible for someone else’s life. Being a mother is by far the most rewarding job in the world.
I rode with my stepdad’s mother and I cried the whole trip. My cries were not loud, but the silent cries that involved tears of sadness that went along with heartache. I have never been away from my grandmother for more than even a few hours and it was devastating, not only for me, but for my grandmother also. I really believe that we have that bond where no matter how far apart we are; we know how each other are feeling. I tried to look forward to the positive effects that were about to happen to me but I just couldn’t.
Ever since the day I was born, my grandmother has been like a second mother to me. Giving a hand in raising me, she treated me like I was her own. I’ve pretty much lived with her my whole life and she has been there for me my whole life. She is one of the most important people in my life, I look up to her and look to her for guidance when I need it the most because I know she cares and she would give me the best advice. She is the most caring and giving woman you could ever meet.
