I’ve probably touched on this before. The fact that having kids gives you an immense confidence boost. At least I believe it does. Think about it. A woman who may get walked on by her boss or cut off by an aggressive driver, put her in the backyard when she discovers a neighbor boy is bullying her son and the claws will come out. She won’t back down defending her child or being his advocate. I love that about motherhood. The way it fills you up with so much love and pride for another human being in an entirely different way than you’ve ever experienced. I remember years ago when a co-worker told me there is something so comforting about lying down in bed knowing his girls are safely and soundly asleep in their beds. I really didn’t get it. Couldn’t relate. Now it’s an emotion I experience regularly. That moment when you close your eyes and thank God you’ve been granted another day to spend with them. It’s an empowering force, really. To know you’ve been charged with suh an awesome and incredible responsibility. Believe me it makes anything you’re doing at work pale in comparison. Who cares if I’m decent at reading a Telemprompter, I’m way more pumped about being able to get two seemingly healthy and happy kids off to school each weekday.
