Being a mother was, without a doubt, one of the most wonderful experiences I've had to date, but it also proved to be one of the most challenging. A mother's love is overwhelming. It's scary and rewarding in ways I can't even explain.
My eldest son was a very difficult baby who revealed a part of me that I didn't know until then: an energy and an ability to overcome that I think only motherhood can provide. However, sleep deprivation and fatigue have affected my life in every way except my willingness to look for a solution.
