Being a mom doesn't mean you won't have tough decisions to make. And sometimes you will stop and ask yourself those same questions. However, there is no fight or flight when it comes to being a mom. When you reach a crossroads where you dont' know where to turn, your Mama Bear comes out and the decision has already been made. You know what is best for your child. You're the Mama Bear. You can't help it. It's pretty awesome.
When I was pregnant with M.D. I was like a lost puppy. Some women talk about pregnancy they talk about how they already "know" their child. They already have the Mama Bear rushing through their blood. I had a little bit of that. I had no idea what was coming.
P.S. My stomach was WIDE open at this point. I had no idea. Kind of a sick thought though. Modern medicine is so bizarre.
Speaking of Steven, he has the Papa Bear instinct as well. A less-recognized but equally important instinct. Everything we do in life now is decided knowing that what is best for M.D. comes first. No questions asked. It doesn't matter if it's not what we WANT to do at that moment. It doesn't matter if it is what is most CONVENIENT to do. It doesn't even matter if it is the decision that will be best for those around us. It matters what is best for M.D. The End. There is definitely a comfort in that. There is nothing better than making a decision and feeling 110% confident in that decision. It's rare in life
