“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” Elizabeth Stone
but that wasn't sufficient warning for the real impact of how much your life and values and world change the first time that child is in your arms. My favorite things brfore I was a Mom suddenly all had to be re-evaluated and only the people managed to stay on the list. Some things I had loved, like "Nightmare on Elm Street" were forever gone. i didn't want to think of that kind of horror in the same world that my baby lived in.
