Having a baby inspires empowering choices
we might never have made prior.
Suddenly self-respect and self-love are ours to model,
our parting gift to them.
So I ask, how do we tell the truth about who we used to be
and maintain our self-respecting Mommy-ness?
Separate who we were from who we are
and be so cautious to not smear our fear all over their beautiful little faces?
This was inspired by a comment I made here.
