"In nine months, I would learn the price of motherhood firsthand. I would know exactly what it takes to be a mother. I would gain a whole new understanding of and gratitude for the beautiful woman I call Mom. I would learn about things mothers experience that their children often know very little about."
I love photos of mothers and daughters. This is one of my favorites by Annie Leibovitz. This is such a beautiful portrait because it highlights the beauty in both mother and daughter. Gwen's closed eyes really draw you in to her mother.
This is so true -what amazing research skills we develop as a parents although the flip side is too much research can make you anxious. It is about finding a balance between gaining knowledge to protect and look after your children well and not getting overwhelmed with information overload I speak from experience !
