Like a Mother
When did you know you’d fully embraced #Momlife?
“When I started referring to myself in the third person, as ‘Mama,’ even when I was alone. The first time I did it, I was driving to a coffee shop while my 3-monthold was with her dad, and I said, out loud, ‘Mama did a great job parking!’” —Caolan Madden; Brooklyn, New York
“When I no longer felt embarrassed at work that I always had some leftover spit-up on my shoulder.” —Laura Sanders; Lakeville, Minnesota
“I knew I’d embraced mom life when I actually started looking forward to middle-of-the-night snuggles. Pre-kids, sleep was everything.” —Tara Condon; Darien, Connecticut
“When I took a call from my boss while inside a bouncy castle.” —Jennifer Dipilato; Ramsey, New Jersey
