The Secrets and Magic of Being a Mother

Syndicated

And lest I make all the people who are not mothers mad by this post on magical motherhood, let me say that I think the mothering kind of love comes from a certain place in our heart. It's quite close to the place where we love our animals, and almost shares a chamber with the place where we love the rest of our family. It also harbors a mean and malicious protective sniper that sometimes makes us behave in pretty crazy ways. All of us. Sometimes. And I'm sorry for that. On behalf of mothers everywhere, I'm sorry for when we believe you want to see another picture, watch another video, or hear another story about our precious. I'm also sorry for when we feel entitled to expect you to put our children's needs/wants/desires in a place of special importance when actually, they are not your priority.

Mothers can be overbearing beasts, it's true.

And while having a child can sometimes put things in perspective, if you're a big jerk before you have a kid chances are you'll be a big jerk after you have a kid right? But I have seen people change into who they really probably were their whole lives -- just through the magic of becoming a mother.

Ok ok ok -- or becoming a father. Everything I wrote is for you too, ok?

  • Mothers really want everyone to be happy.

See above.
