Don’t Tell Me About Sacrifice!!

By  |  20 Comments

These days I’ve noticed very few understand the challenges of choosing to nurse/breastfeed my child past infancy.


Our Savasana

They tell me I need to make sacrifices as a woman and a mother; the set up of their demands – throwing MY BABY in childcare and to get a J.O.B.   What they fail to understand is I make sacrifices everyday. I sacrifice the convenience of leaving my child whenever I feel like going out to party or make steady income, because I am my child’s center and peace! I sacrifice acceptance from the mass majority AND family members who feel what I do is unnecessary, unhealthy and lets not forget sexual abuse.  I sacrifice my own mental comfort by choosing to live outside of my cultural norm and lifestyle because my body and spirit combined say, “THIS IS THE wRIGHT THING TO DO!”…

Camel Milk?? lol

So do not vex me with your own discomforts, insecurities and selfish projections, for I am a strong woman who will follow My God and Spirit first. I do not take motherhood lightly and never will I put you down for all the beauty that you are as a human being!  We deserve to be celebrated.  We are each other’s keepers.  I not only do this for Shannon but I do this for us all!  We are DESERVING!  WE ARE WORTHY! – Ashley Wright

Be the example

*sidenote (for any individual who is offended) – AND before you get your panties in a bunch by my use of the word “throw”, I am in no way implying that a mother negligently tosses her child in daycare.  I am saying that certain friends, society, even family in MY life, disregard MY wants and needs for MY child (emphasis on MY); and want me to needlessly put my child in the care of someone else to get a “real” job, as opposed to what I am doing now.  There is much content in this post so please do not take it out of context.  I do not bash mothers, fathers, families, I support them! We are all doing the best we can with the circumstances we are in, yet I speak up for us all, especially mothers who feel they would rather be a SAHM and for SAHM who feel underappreciated by others who feel they make no sacrifices and what they do isn’t “work”.  pshhhh
