I'm a real mum-to-be because every day of being pregnant I've felt like I'm going to be sick everywhere but I put on my funky maternity clothes and do my hair and make-up and head out the door to work. New lingerie makes every girl feel better original.gif

I am a real mummy because I have 5 children and love them all the same.
I doubt myself every day but one look at my beautiful family and nothing else matters.
I have breastfed almost contiually for 9 years and don't really mind if my body belongs to my youngest.
I can cook a meal, breastfeed, do school work with the eldest and talk on the phone all at the same time.

I know if the children are happy and healthy nothing else is as important.

I'm a real mum, 20 weeks preg with our 1st bubby, because I've had/have constant morning sickness 24/7 & get up before 6 everyday for work, study fulltime and smile, because being a real mum means no matter how you feel you do what you need to do, clean the house, cook dinner, work, study and still smile because of the blessing it is to be a mum original.gif

I am a real mum because I wake up each morning and thank (whoever) that the day has begun, my husband is next to me, my two year old is staring at me, wanting her breakfast, the dog is sighing and I am alive to witness these events...  The only thing I would like to happen now is deliver number two who is already a day overdue - despite this I enjoy the one role in life that is quite a unique role that I can call my own!

Being a real mum I have learnt so much, made many changes and found acceptance.
Everyday I learn something new! I've changed from pregnancy to bub physically and mentally and accepted those changes with a smile because every one is a blessing.

I don't know what a 'real' mum is but I know I love being a mum. I love putting my kids first, even the one growing inside, I love watching my son grow and learn every day and I love teaching him and protecting him along the way. I guess then I'm a real mum because I love my kids and love being with them every day.

I'm a real mum because i am ridiculously proud of my kids for everything (from wiping their bums to learning a new word), because my heart still melts remembering the first cuddle after they were born and the last cuddle before bed, because i always put something back for myself to buy something for them, because they took my world, shook it up and gave it back to me 1000 times better, because as tired, as stressed, as lonely as it can be on my own with my DH working away and as much as i would love my baby to sleep through i wouldn't change a thing. I'm a real mum because i love my boys no matter what i've had to give up - including my figure!!!

I am a REAL mummy because I realise that alone time is no more,
That even though I feel like I'm not gonna make it through the day my children
will remind me that it COULD be better tomorrow,
That the stretch marks on my tummy are not a reminder of what I used to have
but what I've been through to get where I am now,
That theres nothing better than a KINGSIZE bed,
To appreciate Kmart, Target, Best and Less sales,
That no matter how bad things may seem, that the good memories and new memories
far out weigh the bad,
That ONE day, ONE day my children will grow up and leave home biggrin.gif ,
That when I hear my children cry, its a mummy cuddle and a mummy kiss that
makes it all better sad.gif ,
I am a REAL mummy because even though Im tired and want time on my own,
I would miss my children if I didn't hear their voices arguing, yelling, talking and laughing
everyday!! wink.gif  wink.gif  wink.gif

Not quite a mum yet, but will be in 5 months - I don't know what counts as "real" - but I hope I can be really good at it! original.gif

Ready to help at any time
Everyone else comes first
Always ready to listen
Love that is unconditional

Memories are precious
Under stress, but don't show it
Many unsightly flaws that we love

From the minute my son was placed on my chest and I stared into those beautiful eyes, everything else in the world became meaningless and I finally knew what love was.

I know I'm a real mum because my most common topic of conversation is the contents of my son's nappies... has he pooped today... is it too solid... should it be that colour... should he have pooped more... wink.gif

Im a real mum because life has always been about me.
When I was single it was all about me,
When I got engaged to a wonderful man it was still all about me,
But as soon as I held my baby boy in my arms the world changed,
all of a sudden it wasnt just about me....
it was life, it was living

I'm a real mum-to-be because I'm not skinny to start with but I can't wait to get bigger! I don't even know if I'm pregnant yet but I can't stop wondering, and I am looking forward to showing off my belly and my big voluptuous breasts wink.gif

No nanny for me
Numero uno, just me
A cook, a taxi, even the maid
All this, and im not getting paid?
I wash, I clean, fix & repair
Whens the last time I washed my hair?
It's not all bad, often alot of fun
Why? I'm a Real Mum!

She’s there in time of need,

  Helps her children feed,

  Comforting like a teddy,

  Ensures that they’re packed and ready,

  Stay’s up all night,

  Until her kids are alright,

  Forgets about her beauty regime,

  For its her kids that make her gleam,

  What is the most important in my life,

  To be a good mother, a role model and a wife,

  I’m a real mum for every single day,

  Motherhood is like a fresh bouquet.

A real mum to be because I knew the sex straight away, and even if I'm wrong the stacks of clothes will get used further down the track. I'm realistic about my body now and what it will be, but desperatly want to feel like me at the end.

I knew I was a 'real' mum when suddenly it wasn't about me anymore, I love that I live and breathe for my babies and would do absolutely anything for them. It still amazes me how much a 'real' mum's love can make anything better bbaby.gif

I'ma real mum because I worry about my baby to be ,more importantly than myself ,
I put all the work into ensuring that my baby will have all the vital things it needs to feel safe and secure once he/she is born ,
I put up with a lot of pain for my beautiful baby but close my eyes and imagine the joyful day when I get to hold my beautiful baby of joy and smile knowing that Im forever going to protect and provide the best love that this baby needs .
I gave up my body that I had full of confidence with for extra weight and marks on my body but I don't mind one bit because the life ive created is way more precious than my own body .
Once my beautiful baby is born im going to love , provide and protect this baby as much as I possibly can as its the most precious thing in my life and always will be .
