A few weeks ago, my husband noticed a nest being built in the tree nearest our home. I was excited, and I couldn't wait to show our boys (ages 7 and 5). We were going to be bird parents! Dutifully and skillfully, the bird prepared what looked like a tangle of twigs, leaves, and other odds and ends over the span of a week. All of a sudden, the building frenzy was over, the nest was complete, and the bird took residence. I don't know exactly when she laid her eggs, but we were all in. Every day...
What is it about becoming a mother that is both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time? I wish there were adequate words to describe it. Every day I wake up to the gusty wails of my littlest one, and I ask God, “Why me?”
