I read a collection of essays recently in the NY Times that beautifully illustrates all the ways motherhood changes us — our instincts, our fears, our resolve, our joy, our body image, and beyond. And it articulated everything I’ve ever thought about motherhood that’s I’ve always wanted to say. Including…
“And then I had children. Two spirited little boys. Suddenly I was barely getting to or even halfway doing the things I cared about most: working, deepening my marriage, tending to my precious female friendships, fighting for change and watching every episode of “The Real Housewives. Something had to give, and it wasn’t gonna be The Housewives.”
That paragraph could literally have been lifted right out of my brain.
I won’t copy the whole thing here because there is too many beautiful insights to share. Just click here and read it when you get a quiet moment and appreciate that there are others out there, just like you.
