Men Will Never Know

Posted on Mon, Apr 7, 2014 at 11:16 AM

My ideal Mother's Day gift would be for every man to understand what it is to be a mother. To live in constant fear of losing you. To live in constant fear that you will be hurt or someone will hurt you. I'd love for the world to stop smoking around children, move out of seats for pregnant women and understand what it is like to live on only a few hours of sleep and stay trapped indoors breastfeeding a newborn all day and all night. (I'd also love for everyone to understand that I lost most of my mind because I have to do everything one-handed while I nourish a human and a confirm button would be greatly appreciated).

I'd love for my son to grow up knowing that mommy didn't always have those stretch marks, but that they aren't ugly because they were made out of love. I'd love for my son to respect all women no matter what their size and know that mommy didn't always have that little paunch, but that he once lived inside and I sang to him and felt him kick and punch. -Due Again This Fall
