Okay, I know it's after midnight and I should be getting some sleep before morning comes and my toddler excitedly barges into my bedroom (always with several toys in hand) and exclaims "mommy, it's sunny!" and then proceeds to hand me my glass of water from the nightstand while my eyes are still closed (thus ensuing inevitable spilling). But! I just read the most amazing quote from the most amazing article called "Mothers Are Keepers of Bodies" by Courtney E. Martin and had to share.
"There are so many ways that mothering has transformed me, but I often feel like there has been no more important shift than this: It brought me back into my own body after years of mostly living in my head, and it also made me responsible for other bodies in a permanent and profound way." •
