For the last six years, I’ve only had a few crushes. And when I have them, it feels weird. It feels like taking love and energy away from being a mom. From my boy.
It makes me wonder about how conventional family moms split their love. They have to allow time and space for mom love and romantic love. I think that’s more of a skill than we realize.
I have it easy. I only have to give my love to one person in my family. One kind of love to one little heart.
But as my boy gets older, I wonder… can I do it? Am I ready to let in a crush or more? I’m not that single available woman I was for so long. But maybe that’s good.
Any mom solos want to share with me how that transition went for them?
