Nothing sucks the life out of living like this statement; "I have to be responsible now, I'm going to be a parent"... What do you think!?... In that statement, "parenting" has an underlying tone that somehow "fun" and "joy" are no longer are part of life the moment you step into the domain of parenting.
I love this quote from John Lennon; "There are two basic motivating...
Quite a confronting headline right?!
Don't get me wrong - I love Motherhood... and I love the opportunity of being a Mother - I love how I'm growing and learning... and I love the honour and privilege it is to contribute to another human being's experience of life.
