I was surprised by my own selfishness. I thought I was a pretty mature, open-minded, giving, and loving woman. I never realized I could wish more for a latte some mornings than two girls clamoring for my attention. Becoming a mom - not just giving birth and having my girls - is really a growing process for me. I struggle more with my own selfish desires and wants than I ever expected.
Don't get me wrong, some mornings I DESERVE a latte, and I treat myself on occasion - I just didn't know I would resent anything about being a mom.
