My son, the names change (often) but the way you are viewed (in this society) will not. Every day that you get dressed, you unknowingly put on an invisible shirt that tells others what they should think of you. You are not like any of the things written on your invisible shirt, but you will be portrayed this way to justify your ill-treatment.

So is it the word, or the idea of yielding power to another person what seems to get our panties in a wad? I mean we have no problem submitting to the demands of our bosses, the laws in our country (at least if we want to stay out of jail), and anyone else’s it seems, but our husbands? That’s another story.

It has taken me a little over 13 years and 6 kids to figure out that I don’t have all of the answers for the many obstacles motherhood has thrown at me. To clarify, I don’t believe anyone does. I was however, without any answers, prior experience or training, going to be the best mom ever. Ironically, I have failed more times than I have succeeded.
