So everyone tells you how AMAZING being a mom is going to be. There is so much hype about how becoming a mom is life altering and that it is the greatest blessing you can receive.

Freedom Will Come

I was shopping alone at World Market the other night when I found myself staring for what seemed like hours at the clearance tables. I was nearly alone in the store and I felt a sudden, frantic realization that I was in fact very, very alone. No kids. No other shoppers.
