How much do you give up for motherhood?

I have been thinking. For a long time now.

How much does one give up for motherhood?

Sleep? - you manage
Time? - every bit of free time is for your child, no regrets there
Hobbies? - baby becomes your hobby
Energy? - as with sleep, you manage
Youth? - everyone ages, so deal with it
Career? - this is where I cannot decide

And especially if you are mother to a daughter, what kind of example do present her with in your choices in life?

Lauren, my linguistic experiment

I've been signing to Lauren since she was 6 months old, though not very consistently. I try my best to make signing natural, speaking and signing at the same time. But sometimes, I forget to sign as I speak. Nevertheless, inconsistent as my signing may be, Lauren's finally picked up some of the vocabulary. Today, she signed "milk"! Repeatedly too, with purposeful intention! YAY! Baby can sign!!!

I've been wanting to blog for a long time.

Nothing has been forthcoming.

Not because there hasn't been anything to write about.

Perhaps it is precisely that.

There have been too many things happening, till I've decided I can't keep up with my own thoughts, the most current being that my online presence will out live me. Then what of passwords? Can my online presence be removed once I'm gone? Who will do it for me? Will I want it removed? Why am I even thinking this? I know why I'm thinking this. Is there a point thinking this?

Bah humbug.
