Your child will conquer you step by step, reorganizing your energy levels, reorganizing your sleep patterns, reorganizing your thoughts.
You will give, wipe, offer advice, be ignored, protect, and never feel accomplished in the traditional sense because you will never know if you are doing it right.
At the the same time your child will humble you by exposing your deepest vulnerabilities and your illusion of control.
You will fall in love. It will come in a huge wave, colonize you and refashion everything inside. It is thrilling and terrifying, this force that you cannot plan, control, or determine. You will do anything for your child and in the end you will learn how to live a life beyond yourself.
You will lose your mind but find your soul.
