Children don't ask to be born. It is a choice we make to bring them into this world. That is why we change and rearrange our lives for them.
One can never be prepared enough for parenthood. We tell ourselves we're ready to be mothers and in some way we are because I always believe it's an innate trait of every woman. To have that maternal instinct and be naturally caring and compassionate to either humans or animals.
Now there are women who choose to be single and that's a decision everybody should respect. To have a child is not a measure of your womanhood.
You can be a Mum to a human and you can be a Mum to a four-legged rascal :) or if it's really not for you, stay single and mingle and be a Mum to your nieces and nephew.
Whatever the case, women are mothers one or the other.
Mothers have a huge role in a child's development. Studies have shown that the environment and the people around them serve as their window of learning.
A mother is the primary teacher in every aspect of a child's development. Therefore it is crucial to be physically, socially and emotionally stable in the eyes of a child.
But it's not an easy task. It's not always laughter and kisses. Life doesn't give you manuals you can follow to a T and it's the same with motherhood. You have to write your own rules and do it your way. It's not the same as everyone else's.
Motherhood doesn't end when they graduate, get a job, have a family or have their own kids. It's a life-long commitment. And it's the same way with having a furbaby.
We see our pets as our four-legged children and we take care of them the same way we take care of our kids. Well, more so if I have to be honest :) but that is just because they are very dependent on us! And that is something every responsible owner should note. We have to provide them with food, shelter & TLC as long as they live.
They didn't ask to be born as well. They were born and we acknowledged the responsibility of being their mother as soon as we let them into our homes.
