Is it okay to let your personal identity be consumed with motherhood?
My personal opinion on motherhood and the role of a woman as a mother has changed so much now that I am a mother. In fact, it changed in that first nanosecond when I felt my daughter being pulled feet first out of my womb. My previous life was no more.
My daughter recently turned three years old. For the past three years she has needed ME the majority of the time for a multitude of reasons. I think that this is true for many (READ: NOT ALL) babies and young children. Mama provides so many things that no one else can. I am passionate about my role as a mother and believe strongly in meeting all of my child’s needs. If this means making sacrifices in some of my personal relationships, then so be it. The time in which children are this young, and this dependent upon their mother, is so very short in the grand scheme of life. So I embrace it.
