@MissMJ I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. It’s such a foundational relationship in all our lives (for good or bad) that it’s no wonder it’s such a hard loss. I really hope you find some comfort in your memories and have good support all around you as you grieve.
@bloodymediocrity I remember you writing about how tough things had become in your marriage – with the divorce becoming final, I hope you have found some peace. @ktfran, sending good vibes for your diagnostic process!
Was happy to see an update a few pages back from @TheLadyE, it sounds like things have been up and down but glad to see she’s doing okay. @hfantods, I never really had a “maternal” feeling either, and I don’t particularly love spending time with kids that are not my own – and even my own sometimes, lol – but I wouldn’t say that’s a requirement of parenthood. Maybe parenthood would be easier if I was all like “YASS BABIES AND NURTURING” about it, but I think it’s certainly possible to be a fine parent either way. Or to screw it up either way! Haha! That’s fun… Also, you go through phases along with them as they grow. I surprisingly loved the early-toddler stage, then detested a good chunk of 3-4. Now at nearly 10 we can share so many more interests/activities – movies, sports, music, travel. I paid way too much money to take my daughter to the TSwift Eras tour – still a lot less than my wedding cost though! I’m all for a one-night splurge but $90k is really something else!KateKeymaster
I’m really sorry to hear about your mom, Miss MJ. That’s much too soon.
I don’t know if you can think of her going right on and still being herself and if that would give you any peace. And that everything she gave you is still there with you. She’s in your heart.
