thank you, mothers.

I already shared this on Facebook yesterday, but I’m so, so thrilled to have joined Babble Voices as a columnist documenting my pregnancy and [slow but steady!] entry into motherhood. And my first post is for you, mothers.

Because although you might not realize it, you’re mothering more than your children. By sharing your stories, advice and endless words of wisdom, you are mothering a community. You are fostering a collective voice of encouragement among first-time mothers, weary women and fearful feminine beings everywhere.

And this post is for you.
