What does being a mother mean to you?

What does being a mother mean to you?

Jackie Pilossoph, Pioneer Press author says “It’s been 17 years, but I still vividly remember how I felt the first time I held my newborn son in my arms.

My first thought might have been, “I can’t believe I actually gave birth to an almost 11 pounder,” but I also was instantly in love.

My new baby’s chubby cheeks and angelic soul warmed my heart and gave me a joy I’d never experienced.

But I was also terrified. From the moment I saw him, I knew his life and well-being were completely dependent on me (And, unfortunately, my mother was only staying with us for a week.)

From day one, maternal worrying began.

How was I going to learn how to change a diaper?

How could I get the baby to stop crying?

When will his umbilical cord fall off?

And how the heck was I going to get back into my pre-pregnancy jeans?”
