I participated in Double X Science’s Motherhood Defined* by answering the question, “What does motherhood mean to you?”
Reading the other answers from other men and women was interesting- although I wonder if mine should have been more mushy?
Click the link above- my response is the second from the top…
*ETA: Double X Science did some revamping and that link no longer works, so here is my response to the query:
Motherhood means accepting responsibility. If you read the news or listen to the hype, you know what I mean. Every choice you make, from before a child is conceived, until long after you’re dead, there is someone out there that will tell you how it impacted your kid. As my nana always said, “It’s always the mother’s fault.” I just hope that as the time passes I get more credit than blame for how my kids turn out.- Momma, PhD.
