Reflections on Motherhood

I found this on the Mothering Magazine site today and I want to post it here so I remember. Who knows how long this YouTube video will be up and running, but a long time I hope. I'd love to pass it on to my daughter when she becomes a mama. Its worth shutting out your responsibilities and the other people in your life for the less-than four minutes it'll take to watch this video. I'm confident that at least one thought will strike a chord with each mother. In no particular order, here's just a few that stood out to me:

Its okay to be scared
Trust your instincts
You will miss your mom
Real men change diapers
Take time to fall in love with your baby
Its okay to want a break
Your mom was right
No one really knows what they're doing
Imperfect is the new perfect
Millions of people survive sleep deprivation
You're about to know true love
