For some moms, there comes a moment when you realize you created an actual HUMAN BEING. You are a CREATOR. A force of nature. You did that. And then, a new, slightly less badass realization: you’re also responsible for creating that tiny human’s life and all they experience for the next however-many years.
That’s one hell of a creative brief.
Here’s a hot take. It’s not just about creating a life where your children are free to grow and thrive—it’s about creating a life where YOU are free to do the same, whatever that looks like. It’s about breaking free from the shoulds, should-nots, do’s, don’t’s, and all the other complex and crazy expectations thrust upon us. Can’t we be dope ass moms AND our dope ass selves?
I certainly think so.
