Since my son was born, each time my hubs deploys for his job I find myself questioning my competency as a mother.
It hasn’t even been a week since my husband left, and already the thoughts creep into my head…
Can I do this?
I know I am a good mother.
I am capable of single parenting, I am capable of a lot of things.
I just need a boost every now and again.
I believe in the power of words…
In the wisdom of those who have done this before me…
