Whether you are an expectant Mother, a new Mother, or a more experienced Mother, you have a job more valuable than anything else in the world. You grow and raise another Human, and with that can come a lot of worries.
A Mother’s worry is something that starts from the second you find out that you are pregnant: Is the baby growing properly? Is the baby kicking enough? Is the baby healthy?
To birth: Is the baby going to be OK during labour? Am I going to be OK during labour?
To Newborn: Are they feeding enough? Why are they crying? Are they sleeping too much? Can they hear ok?
As they grow, you keep a constant eye on them to make sure they are not sticking their fingers in sockets or eating things they shouldn’t be eating.
This worry moves to school years: Are they making friends? Are they learning at the average rate?
And that is before we even move on to the teenage years: Who are their friends? What are they doing in their spare time? Are they studying enough?
A mother’s life is full of worry, and that is why, on this one day of the year, we should sit back, and let others worry about us. We deserve it.
