I think the biggest surprise for me about motherhood was just how much love I could have for my children. It is a love I have never experienced! My heart is so full! I am so thankful every day for the most precious babies that God has entrusted me with.

Thanks for your reply Ashley!  Agreed - a mother's love for her children is unrivaled by anything I've ever experienced.  So thankful :-)

I was surprised by how powerful the complete adoration (bordering on obsession!) for my new baby was at making my total exhaustion a bit less painful. And all the crazy things my postpartum body did. No one told me! So many maxi pads and giant pairs of underwear. 

So true Bailey! Hilarious on the pads and underwear!

Agreed. Falling so deeply in love with my children was my biggest surprise. I never knew I could love another so completely and unconditionally.

My second biggest surprise is how unbelievably brillant my daughter would be, graduating 3rd in her class and receiving a full merit scholarship to a top engineering school. Or that I would feel so incredibly proud of her. I'm more proud of her than I've ever been of any accomplishment of my own.

Another big surprise was that I would have such an athletic sports obsessed son. And I'd become a hockey mom, and actually enjoy sitting in an ice rink freezing my booty off in the summer when normal people should be at the beach! :)

My biggest surprise? How I could function on such a severe lack of sleep. Didnt' think it was possible, yet here I am.

I think I was surprised at the instant love at first sight. This deep love that is unbreakable and unwavering. I would do anything for my kids. 

I would also say another big surprise was the new found appreciate I had for my own actual Mom and what she did for me over the years.

LOL Truth!

How about how common conversations about poop become in your household! Never did I expect there would be so much free conversation around it. Excitement that they peed/pooped in the potty, telling everyone about it. Feeling so proud. Crazy!

The biggest surprise was finding out that I could love my babies soo much. It is a different kind of love and its soo big that you can't even imagine not having that feeling in your heart. Being able to function on such little sleep as well. Moms have a tough job but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!
