Measuring Life by Ounces

Having kids changes our worlds, our worth, our anxiety, our thoughts, our percieved notions of ourselves.  I know changes happen for men too,  but I don't think it is quite as drastic as it is for us.  We women become something stronger than we ever new we could be.  Selfless superwomen.  Every thought is of someone else before ourselves, we see it all differently- our bodies are not even our own. ...more
