Becoming a mother is a transforming experience. And, although you may think you know what it is going to be like, it never turns out that way.
Along with exceeding your expectations, the birth or arrival of your first child will create a paradigm shift for how you see your own mother. All of a sudden all those things your mother used to tell you that you thought were a waste of your time or hers, they are all right and justified. Suddenly you understand why she said it and what it really meant.
Washington FAMILY Magazine is putting together thoughts and opinions about motherhood from other mothers. We would really like to hear from you. We want to find out what YOU think and what is important to YOU.
Tell us what you think and how you see the “Motherhood” experience.
Then we will share your comments on WUSA9 during the Moms Like Me and FAMILY Magazine segment on Monday, May 4 and with our online readers.
Every mom who sends me her comments by 4PM, Thursday, April 30 will also be eligible for a drawing for a GREAT BIG BOX of DVDs, kids books, toys and other great stuff. We will even customize the GREAT BIG BOX for the age and sex of your children.
