How Motherhood Has Changed Me

Well, motherhood was a welcome change for me. An expected change which altered my life forever and for better. My sleep cycles are permanently damaged. The stretch marks are irreversible. Even the way I think has changed and thinking about others before myself biggest change that I can think of.

Here’s what becoming a mother did to me:

Green chilly? Are they still growing those?


Colour of poop is the most important detail of the day.

But most of all, the love in the heart and eyes of my kids has mellowed me down to an extent that me and the people closest to me could only imagine. I am smiling more than ever. I am accepting changes without frowning. I have become more accepting towards flaws and differences in people. I never knew before how much love and kindness I have within. I owe my children a lot for they bring out the best out of me and make me a better person every day.
