The Mom Hat: What it Feels like to be a Mom

I get this question a lot, “What does it feel like to be a mom?”
.
Well, you know the feeling you get when you try out a new dinner recipe? When you aren’t sure it’s going to work out? You prep as hard as you can to get it right, secretly you have no idea what you are doing, but somehow – the meal turns out delicious. Everyone loves it. Everyone eats it. You pat yourself on the back and think to yourself: I did that. I made that! You’re so exhausted from all of your hard work, but you feel proud. So proud.  
.
That’s what it feels like to be a mom.
.
You get to sit back, every day, and look at this amazing person you made. You have no idea how you did it. How you are still doing it. But, you are. And it’s wonderful. That is the best way I can explain this feeling. Although … you don’t get to dress dinner in funny costumes and capture photos like this one.
