My nurse on the day we left the hospital: “isn’t it amazing, it’s like your heart left your body and is now in the world” she said.
This sentiment is so wildly beautiful but triggered a vulnerability that I have never known. Being a mother has been the most terrifyingly amazing thing I have ever done. Being the mother of a three year old makes motherhood feel brand new all over again and I bet you can say that in every stage of parenting. Not only am I learning about this new life before my eyes, but I am discovering who I am, again.
