MamaBlogger365 – ‘Motherhood Is’ by Jennifer Andersen

Motherhood is: A constant contradiction of wanting to be with my children so much that I do not want to leave them to work, and being so bored from playing cars that I desperately want to be in an office full of adults. Jennifer Andersen is excited to be involved with a project like MamaBlogger365. (Would you like to join us as a writer too?

Motherhood, for me, is: The moment of seeing my children, after hours (or days) of not being present, as I went through the motions of meeting only their basic needs. A flash of regret after reaching frustrations point of no return, credited to too many hours spent with only my whining, demanding children. Bloodshot eyes from a night void of sleep, and still necessarily ensuring basic health and safety for two people incapable of doing so themselves. Jennifer Andersen writes at Pondering Jane and also for the MamaBlogger365 Initiative, ‘reframing motherhood’ to raise awareness and funds for the Museum Of Motherhood.

MamaBlogger365 – Poor Thing by Jennifer Anderson

Yes, she was the very example of why I would not let myself become a stereotypical stay at home mom. You know, those women whose conversations cannot seem to leave sleep challenges and picky eaters, or even worse, gush corny sentiments about their oh-so-adorable-daughters first steps.

MamaBlogger365 – This Mama’s Struggle by Jennifer Anderson

My husband and I have made a choice to Attachment Parent (AP) our kiddos. The difficult part of this choice is not only that it is not mainstream, meaning that we lack resources and support, but that I often feel looked upon as “a poor sap” for rushing to my children when they need me, or scheduling nights out around my one year old daughters desire to nurse. My husband and I are confident and happy with this parenting choice and cannot imagine life any other way.
