If you’re not complaining about motherhood you’re not doing it right. It’s HARD! But, never sitting with my babies did I ever think “this is a waste of time” even, when they bullied me into doing the weird animal noises, when reading their books. And the willingness to contort your face into an emotion so my daughters can understand what hurt looks like, when biting become their form of hello.
I must say I’ve giving some Oscar worthy performance over the years. To the endless poop inspections I did to make sure they dietary needs are being met. My girls have been the BEST yet MOST challenging decision I’ve ever did.
The amount of self growth I have done in the short years since having them have trumped any self-growth before them. Their peace of mind has become an important thing to me.

I could think of myself clever and wish for more wishes. I’m sure, I wouldn’t have been alone with that wish. But, three wishes is all you get. No more, no least.
1: I’d wish to end all animal and human suffering, Done!
2: I’d wish for my family to be safe from harm.
3: To be the smartest person in the world. (said in an climactic voice)
