Am I having some sort of existential crisis? We’re a month away from trying for our first kid and I just keep thinking about how sad I am to lose my current life of freedom/ease. I can’t get through Adele’s “When We Were Young” without crying. I know there’s beauty on the other side and motherhood is always something I’ve wanted dearly. I just can’t seem to get where the bout of sadness is coming from.
