Even though I know I have no business having a baby, it feels like a door closing on my fingers every time I see it happen to someone else.
No one told me that morning sickness doesn’t go away after the first trimester.
When did we start defining imperfection as “everything’s falling apart”? When did we start billing a rough day (or week) as abject failure?
“I am completely comfortable saying that I do not feel the need or desire to ever have children of my own.”
Just because I made another human, does that mean I’m forced to pretend I love every second of raising him?
You made me feel like I was replaceable and unloveable, and I’ve carried that with me my entire life.
I’m the mom who thinks it’s a great idea to bake a cake at 11 pm or eat dessert before dinner.
Every girl should be able to say they love their mother…and that’s just not something I can do.
I safely co-slept with both my babies and it strengthened our bond.
My baby is going to ‘big school’ and I’m not ready…
If I had a dollar for every time you told me I was doing it wrong, I’d be rich.
