I remember sitting in a small creative writing class in college, chatting about our majors and course work outside of that class, when the professor turned to me and asked, “What do you want to be?”
The words just flew out of my mouth before I had a moment to think, and I realized immediately after that the “correct” answer was that I was studying literature and secondary education and would likely teach middle school English. But yes, I also knew that even at the age of nineteen, I longed for the day when I would be a mom.
I approached pregnancy with the same fervor, imagining in detail what my pregnancy would be like long before getting pregnant, planning the birth of my child, knowing what I thought I would like to eat. I assumed that I would eat only healthy meals and give my child this amazing start at life, but in reality I was very ill and couldn’t keep most food down for my entire pregnancy. Instead some days all I longed for was a bag of salty potato chips. My brother even joked that my daughter arrived two months early because she wanted something more than cheese sandwiches and chips! Thankfully, my daughter is now completely healthy and will try anything, even foods that I still don’t like. It turns out that what I could expect was…the unexpected!
