Mothers need to listen, we need to listen to our hearts.
I heard a friend advise this week to 'stop the mind chatter and mother with your instincts'. How wonderfully put... stop the mind chatter.
This is not easy to do. My head is too often filled with unnecessary chatter. Input from a thousand different sources all trying to guide my mothering journey. Advice is wonderful, and many times I rely on the wisdom from outside myself, but most times and in most situations I already know what needs to be done, I just need to listen to my heart.
There is no one who knows these children more than me. I know the meaning of each different cry, I know who will laugh at which jokes. I know which one will get a fever and which one will have a sore throat instead. We share a part of the same soul, these babies and me.
When I am silent and listen I know it.
Just as my body knew how to birth them, my heart knows how to mother them.
