I have come to the conclusion that being a parent is the extreme of all emotions. Like they bring out extreme joy/sadness/fear/anxiety/excitement..etc... Anyone agree with me? That's the best way I've come up with to describe being a parent.
ITA. Before becoming a parent, I think my emotions were pretty shallow. I didn't know what it really meant to love someone so much you would literally die for them, to be paralyzed with fear at the thought of something bad happening to them, to feel such pain when they are in pain, or to be blissfully happy at their simple happiness.
I know I'm not a mom yet.. but there is a primal feeling that I need to protect my little Sam.. Already I feel that about the medical establishment.. I need to know things in order to help her be healthy and safe.. I want her to have the best chances at life and I can tell I'd do anything to make that possible.. Even if it's not standard.
