Fear is part of becoming of a mom.
Is there anything that we don’t fear when becoming mothers?
I have a 2½ year-old daughter and I fear for so many things. She contracted meningitis at 3 weeks old and felt real fear for her life from back then. I fear she might be run over by a car, she might get lost or stolen. I fear she might get hurt in a car accident. I fear something might happen to her, and she won’t be able to tell me or know how. I fear for her safety when she is sound asleep in her own room and robbers enter our house and I maybe can’t get to her. I fear that she might drown before I am able to take her for swimming lessons. I also fear these jungle gyms, which are too high - she might fall down and break her neck J
I probably fear excessively many things, but I am sure if I let my thoughts run I will come up with other hundred and one things to fear. Most of the time I make a conscious decision not to be so afraid, but even so, above all - I am most afraid of what I will do or how I will cope if anything should happen to her!
