Parenting reflexion – how was the first year of experience

Emotions, learning, exploring

Emotions – whole year and even prenatal time was full of emotions. Everything what was happening was so new, so exciting and unique. You can not repeat this time again and I definitely felt so many new feeling which without Edie I would not have had opportunity to live it. Since he was born my life totally changed. I am not anymore alone in this world and I have to take care 24/7 about little man. Before I had Edie I was thinking how I would be able to take care of somebody if I am able to make dry every flower and able to forget to feed my fish for few days……but yeah. I have learned very fast and every day is now different and full of changes. My biggest emotions came with particular things. I have been crying when Edie was, I was laughing when Edie was.  Surprisingly he is the only person which is able to make me drive crazy. I am very calm person but when he starts to cry because of ony reason, believe me I am becoming crazy. Kids are the best teachers of patience, tolerance and love.

Learning – this is such a simple and basic thing I am doing on everyday basis. Since Edie was born there was nearly any activity repeated. He is developing very fast and I am practically pushed without any previous notice and explanation to keep learning and catching his development pace. It is not easy because kids do not ask for permitions. They are just here waiting what we as parents can offer them. Edie is challenging me every day. He is looking for new things, new activities and I am here for him, exploring our mutual road of learning. I have learned a lot from him. I started to play guitar, because he like music. I am able to perform most of the daily activities only with one hand (cooking, cleaning our flat, going on toilet – bit challenge, etc.) because in the other I am holding him. I have learned also how to rest fast and effectively together with him. I have learned what makes him laugh, cry, happy, entertained, bored. I think that I have learned many things about parenting too. I have been asking many mothers and fathers around for advices, discussing with many parents around in Venezuela. Challenging them and myself in good will of giving my son as much as possible. Learning process consist for me of 80% observation, studying, open mind, absorbing, feeling and 20% performing, applying what I have learned and improving what have been done before.

Exploring – that is exactly the biggest part of being parent and having your child. I have never thought how many things are needed since early beginning and probably nobody will know it till you do not became parent. The parenthood as itself is the unknown journey. Your boat is sailing to the future with good will of raising Good Person. You have a goal but nobody can tell you how to reach this goal. Nobody have thought us in the schools the most basic things such as “to be parent”. We are bearing the biggest responsibility on our shoulders and especially in the beginning you have no idea how the things will work, you have some ruff idea what you are supposed to do. You just go ahead and keep exploring even you have no idea where the wild water of life will take you. Exploring is not scaring it is just widening your horizons and enriching your life.

So if we count all pluses and minuses to have a baby is big Gain. Your life obtained big motivation to do things. Your life is enriched by special family spirit which you can keep growing.

Into my hands was given the biggest gift in my life and it is life of the another person!

There is nothing more beautiful and challenging and worth to being loved than is your child. Because it is your love, it is your heart and it is your life!
