For me…

Being a mother = being greeted by toothless smiles, chaotic mornings and beautiful evenings.

Being a mother = being overwhelmed by a confused mix of love, anxiety, fear and concern

Being a mother = realizing that my child can be wiser than I am

Being a mother = vying for the award of the ‘best mom’ and then telling myself…’take it easy’

Being a mother = having a best friend who is watching me all the time and knows how to read my littlest expressions…

Being a mother = having a mirror that tells me the truth, however painful

Being a mother = being hyper about my child’s protection Being a mother = learning to trust life and let go
