I've been through child birth so naturally, I'm fearless.
Erhm, maybe not so much.
I'm still a little scared of some things. And by little, I mean a lot. And by some, I mean many.
I thought being a mother would mean that I'd be able to handle anything and any personal fears would fly out the window. After all, mothers handle everything. They know all the answers. They never show fear.
Except it's all a farce. Our children think we're super heroes, who come to the rescue and fix everything and aren't afraid of anything but it's just a rouse. A little white lie we happily let them believe.
A lie that even I believed.
Until I became a mother myself.
And the thought of getting more bloodwork still scared me.
That fear doesn't get whisked away with the placenta?
Um, not quite.
So, in full disclosure, here is a list of ten things I'm still afraid of.
Yes, even as a mother.
There's so much more to this list but I think it prudent to stop at ten. If I covered everything in one list, I'd have nothing to whine to my husband about. And that would be travesty. Not to mention how disappointed he would be.
