But even though sometimes don’t like to discuss that with their children and look happy, they would also want to take a little break from everyday life. While taking her child to school this mother was thinking about the same things.
She was thinking about everything that she has to do for her child from making meals to running to school; her clock is always set according to the needs of the child. She also has a younger son who would cry tirelessly all night, impairing her sleep. But there is something beautiful that gives her strength. She wrote a letter in order to share with the whole world.
The letter is called “the last time” and was written for all mothers who think they sacrifice too much for their children. Her feelings are best described with her words and they will take you through the world of motherhood and show why it is worth your effort.
She writes: “The first time you hug your child, you will not be the same person. Maybe you want to be that old you when you had the freedom and free time, when you didn’t know what fatigue is and when every day was the same”
“Now that’s changed. Now you are replacing the kid’s diapers and hear it crying. Complaints and quarrels. This may seem like an endless circle of repetition. But don’t forget …”
“… there is last time for everything. The day will come when you will feed your baby for the last time. Sleeping in your lap after a long day. And the last time you’ll hug them while they are sleeping. The last time you’ll wash their hair, holder their arm on the street.”
“And then they will never again need the same from you. No more waking up at night and hugging. You’ll sing songs and play with them, then you won’t do that again, because it will be the last time”
“When you take them to school, you’ll kiss them goodbye, and the next day they will not ask you to go with them. You will read them a bedtime story, clean their dirty face. The will jump into your arms for the last time”
“The fact is that you don’t know when it will happen for the last time, until that time comes. Even then, you will need time to understand. So, while you are living in these moments, remember that they are very limited and will not last forever. And when they stop happening, you’ll want to experience them again.”
