The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new.
I’ve mentioned before… this mothering gig was a lot harder than I thought. I often thought that once I become a mother, I would ease into the role but that’s hardly the case. Is it because the lack of maternity instinct? I really don’t know, but during this journey (all of about 7 weeks), there were several times that I just broke down. Thankfully, my mom and my sis stepped in during this difficult time of mine to offer words of encouragement, advice and support. Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to do without their honest sharing and their offering of support. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart.
