Having a Baby Changed My Life

Satisfactory Essays
There’s always one experience in life that

either makes you or breaks you, and having my

son has definitely made me who I am. Before I had

Gabriel, my life was completely different but

now everything has changed for the better. I’ve never

loved anyone or anything like I love him.

Being a mother is absolutely amazing. The things my

son learns and teaches me every day are

also amazing and also make me better. There’s no way

I could ever not want him in my life.

Before I had my son, people would say I was

completely different person. I was a little

wild and crazy. Don’t get me wrong I am still the

hilarious person I was back then but I also had

no goals, and ambitions. But now I have tons of goals

and ambitions for life. I definitely want to

be successful in everything that I do. One way he has

made me better is by me starting school

last semester. I received A’s and B’s in all my

classes and I only have him to thank for the

motivation he has given me. Going to school means

getting a good job and being able to support

him by myself when it’s all said and done.

Another way he has made me better is because

he has taught me what love really is. I’ve

never loved anyone or anything the way I love him.

Everyday when I look in his eyes, all big

staring at me, I know he loves just as much as I love

him. Not to mention the fact that he needs

me and that makes me feel good. Whenever Gabriel

looks up at me and says “mama” it makes

my heart pound with such joy its unbelievable. I have

to say that past 11 months have been the

best 11 months of my life.

I also feel so important when he learns new

things from me and teaches me new things

every day. Recently, I taught him how to throw a

ball, although he isn’t the best at catching yet it

still is and amazing feeling. I’m also trying to

teach him where some of his body parts are

located. For instance, right now we are working on

teaching him where his eyes are. Gabriel also

knows how to talk on the phone. It’s the funniest

thing to see him walking around with the phone

to his head talking his baby talk with the most

serious look on his face. He also teaches me to

have patience and understanding when it comers to

him. Before I had him, I had to be the most

inpatient person I knew. But now thanks to him I am

patient and understanding.

In conclusion, having my son has turned me

into a completely different person. It has

changed me for the better and I’m very thankful for

him. He’s made me get my life together and

realize that I needed goals and ambitions. He has

taught me what love is all about, and I have

enjoyed teaching him new things and him teaching me

new things also. Although I am doing it

by myself I wouldn’t take having him back for

anything in the world. He’s my life now and I’m

going to do whatever it takes to show him I am the

best that I can be.

    How a Baby Changed My Life I have heard that if you wait to have a baby until you are ready, you will never have one. Even at 39, I felt that I was not ready for the changes. I did not even realize the amount of changes that having a baby would have on my life. I also had no idea that I would change my career after the baby was born. I also did not know that I would have to function on little or no sleep. Furthermore, the amount of free time that I used to enjoy has been greatly reduced…

    one time, in one place to watch a football game. It was against the Florida Gators and the city was abuzz with “GO CANES” signs and Miami jerseys. I was there too, experiencing something that I didn’t know, but something that would change my life forever. My dad (who played for the Hurricanes from 1983-1987) and I walked into the colossal stadium. As we reached an opening to get to our seats I saw the field for the first time. It was beautiful, and it caught me off guard. Game time inched closer;…
