I swear you my hand dear baby; hold tight, you’re growing in a world that’s not always right. You’ll have times when you’ll want to give up on it all, there’s no shame in failure, find strength from the fall. Watch for a twist when the path appears straight, try not to panic, take stock…
It was only when I recently attended a friends baby shower that I became aware of the 'behind the scenes' competitiveness.
Let me introduce you to the new meaning of Shower Pressure.
The deep and sharp emotions I feel today will pass. Writing this has helped. The leaden blur will soon disperse allowing a new filter to take its place. My sombre heart will recuperate when the physical pain ends and in the meantime, I will take comfort in knowing my secondary little wholesome heart is happily beating elsewhere.
On reflection, I wish I had mustered the energy to discuss further, to re-open the intermittent debate we have on this topic. Because like so many said before, it was a comment that creates self consciousness and doubt for people who are (finally) accepting and learning to love their body.
6am sharp, your inquisitive eyes open, to start your day of adventures, wonders unspoken. As morning birds gently rouse others at dawn, you’re squeals are on par with a loud foghorn. A plastic car in my face is the idyllic way to wake, Flicking, poking, scratching, no sign of a break. Quite rightly, that book…
I know as mothers we should find all moments in their development as magical milestones and we should naturally worship every second, however I’ve got pretty disenchanted by this phase
All in all, I think that respect should always guide our paths while allowing ourselves to be more tolerable to other parenting styles or personal decisions. I strongly believe, and I know that we can be supportive of each other in this motherhood journey.
We are a team of strong women and I know we can make a difference!
Now that I'm a little older and a little wiser. I really don't feel that it makes a difference how a woman chooses to sustain her baby. I'm a supporter of feeding your baby any way you need (or want) to feed your baby. This is a cause like many other causes that women should be supporting each other in. I see a lot of very negative and very aggressive remarks between women talking about mothers should be feeding their babies & I really feel like the women of the world in general should be supporting each other; especially mothers. Mother's should be supporting each other in decisions like this without a doubt.
Hosting a toddlers birthday party should be a breeze right?
Cake, toys, music, beige party food and bubbles - done *drops mic, walks back to the land where awesome parents exist*
To the girl I was; hating her size,
masking scars, a fraudulent disguise.
I see you there, self-conscious and shy,
confidence at zero, aching to cry.
