Dear Fellow Mom,
I want you to know that being a human being will make you a better mom. You don’t have to be perfect. All it will teach your child is how to be a perfectionist. Motherhood is a physical and emotional marathon. You cannot grit your teeth through it; you need to breathe deeply and relax into it, and let it soften your heart and overwhelm you with joy and gratitude. You will have bad days and painful, tired tears. And when you watch your child finally make those steps across the WHOLE room into your arms, you won’t want your life any other way.
