My belief is not that motherhood starts when a child is born, rather it’s a truly active process once you’re pregnant. In the same token, being a mother can start even before becoming pregnant. Thoughts of motherhood can start long before becoming pregnant and thereby entering into it.
For me, becoming a mother started when I was still so young. Actually, before I really even understood what having children meant. When I was young, my mother worked or volunteer with the preschool I attended and later my first elementary school. Later, when she did start working more (and as more children came), she sometimes chose work that allowed her to be home when we returned from school. These observations set in motion my desire, again without the understanding, that to be a stay-at-home-mother might just be the route to take.
I’m hanging out with Liz over on Sundays with Sophie, so go visit her to read the rest of my story.
