I have a thought that I’m scared to articulate, but it hit me clear as a bell today…. as I struggle with this Mommy stuff (refereeing, medical, school, homework, short order cook, stylist…don’t get me started on the guilt…. women (maybe it’s just me) are not meant to parent alone.
Other than the brain injury and child death in my history, being a mother has been one of the most isolating, lonely experiences of my life.
It’s not that I don’t love my children, or that I wouldn’t do anything for them (don’t be an asshole)
