“Motherhood changes you. It softens your sharp edges and gives love a new meaning. It gives you a confidence in yourself and your body. The disbelief that you grew a person turns into confidence. It makes me look at life differently. Before I lived life for me. I was a good wife. But I was selfish. You can’t be selfish as a mother. That little baby is relying on you. He loves you so much and it feels so completely right to share cuddles all day long.
Motherhood opens your heart to love your husband even better, especially as you see him dote on your baby, the child that you made together. It allows you to see your husband in a new light, a better light, and to fall in love with him all over again. But as good as it is, it’s just as hard, like the sleepless nights that no amount of warnings can prepare you for. The fear of doing the wrong thing or making the wrong decision is so very real. To breastfeed or formula? Daycare or stay at home? Decisions..decisions. Then you remember that confidence that you now possess and the decision you want to make is the right one.
Mother’s intuition is real and you feel it in your heart of hearts.” Roxanne, Mother
