I thought I posted this already, but I guess not.
I have been really sad all day today. I am not sure why. I think maybe it has to do with my identity. I am having a hard time reconciling my identity as a mother with my pre-baby identity. I also hate the word mother. I prefer mama or mom. Mother has negative connotations for me. It sounds cold and distant. I don't know where I am gonig with this. I guess I am wondering if anyone else has felt this way?
