My fiance and I were driving and talkin and he was saying how weird it's been for him to go from single bachelor to having a serious girlfriend and 4 kids. I told him yeah I couldn't imagine not getting a run through of the baby stuff! He was saying that you never know fear until you have children.
Which is why I'm posting. I guess before I was a mom, my biggest fears were not having the perfect dress for prom. Or not getting an A on a big exam. Or my dad not getting me the coolest pair of jeans the following weekend. I feared my friend and I not talking because of some stupid guy. It's crazy how your fears when you aren't a mother change so drastically!
Now I fear a lot more than what I ever thought was possible! I fear germs so much more. I fear hot food burning their mouths. I fear an animal biting them. I fear them falling and getting hurt. I fear getting into an accident with them in the vehicle. I fear them getting too cold or too hot. I fear pedophiles. I fear perverts, and rapists. I fear child abusers. I fear abducters. I fear them getting hurt and me not being able to help them. I fear them getting sick and me not being able to make them feel better. I fear my daughters heart being broken and not being able to punch the jerk for breaking it. I fear them moving out and starting their own lifes. I fear them not needing me like they do now. I fear them making friends and sharing secrets with them instead of me.
As you can see my fears have totally changed!!! Have yours? Just curious to see what others moms have to say!
