Some of you may have heard of Share the Dignity. It’s an Australian charity that donates pads, tampons and other personal hygiene items to women across Australia who are experiencing homelessness and poverty. They’re also a champion advocate for women who are victims of domestic violence.
Sam went away for a couple of nights recently and I stayed home with Henry. Spending nights apart is nothing new, but this time was different. Henry’s canine teeth were coming through (parents who warned me about canines were oh so justified!). Because of that, he had high temperatures and a runny nose. He was grumpy which is unlike him, and he was awake every hour during the night for three nights in a row. I didn’t feel exhausted and I didn’t get frustrated with him because I knew the reason he was unsettled, I felt sympathetic, and I knew it wouldn’t last.
But here’s what I did do that weekend. I developed a whole new appreciation for single mothers.
Pregnancy is a 10 month emotional rollercoaster. You’re flooded with emotions like happiness, excitement, gratitude, love, nervousness, anticipation and worry. And, we all know that a pregnant woman can be jumping for joy one minute and then balling her eyes out for no reason the next. Thanks, hormones, appreciate it!
I'm married to Sam and I'm a mother to Henry.
