it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction

I loved this book. I feel like I could have written it myself. Not every parent falls in love with their child immediately. I think especially for those of us with careers that we love. Having your first child in your 30s is much different than having a child in your teens or 20s--you have had a lot of time to "become who you are". Having a baby after you feel this way really rattles you.
I am happy for those of you who experiences the immediate bliss of motherhood. Just please realize it doesn't happen that way for everyone. It doesn't make us bad mothers, just honest ones. ;)
