As one of our final assignments for Mothering Authentically, we were asked to do some journalling by completing the statement Motherhood Is... I haven't finished work yet, but here is my page in progress:
The text reads:
-A mirror, reflecting back your best and worst selves
-Big Love (scary, exciting, exhausting, challenging, overwhelming, worry, freedom, boredom)
-An excuse to dress up like a princess whenever the mood hits
-A key which unlocks a flood-gate of tears
What does motherhood mean to you?
