“Where are you, mama? Are you lost?” asked my little boy caus he couldn’t find me while I was doing laundry in the other room. And that got me thinking..
As new moms, we proclaim that we won’t give up our identity, our careers, hobbies, independence, friendships, dreams, etc. just because we had a baby. We don’t want to lose what we were before. So we go in strong. We want to be good moms, cool moms, successful moms, hot moms, strong moms. We want to do everything right, so we erect towers for our new identities. We strive to be better than we were before we became mothers. Then slowly we learn that motherhood should be called “otherhood”; the relentless caring for others and not the self… “Don’t get lost mama” he said.
