The Mom I Used to Be

I used to be that mom,

who wouldn’t dream of breastfeeding the baby just to keep her quiet

because

I used to be that mom,

who had her baby on a strict feeding schedule.

I used to be that mom,

who pumped religiously every morning in case I wanted to go out

because

I used to be that mom

who cried if I had to give my infant formula.

I used to be that mom,

who thought it was terrible to let your child watch TV

because

I used to be that mom,

who planned out the day with activities to engage her infant’s mind.

I used to be that mom,

who had a beautifully clean house even with a busy baby around.

I used to be that mom,

who rushed to pick up the baby as soon as she cried.

I used to be that mom,

and then I had a second baby,

and I took the stick out of my ass.
