motherhood

from gypsy mama: write for 5 minutes, non stop, starting with the sentence below

Motherhood should come with…

A manual. Or a guidebook. And possibly a guide. Someone who’s been there before, who can help with those unanswerable questions, with those sleepless nights, and stressful days. A knowing someone who will let you know that it will be okay, no matter how bad it seems. Who will tell you that you will get to sleep once again. Someone who will assure you that nothing will happen to the baby if you finish your last 3 sips of tea before coming to see why he’s awake again (especially if he’s 2 months old). Motherhood should come with a second. As in: second person. Second you. Someone still has to do the laundry, make the beds, wash the dishes; as well as take care of the baby. A robot would be nice. Motherhood should come with an extra heart. To hold all the love that the existing heart can’t possibly fit.
