“Is he too attached?,” I wonder as he cries for me and only me, yet again, as I try to get ready. ⁣

“Is he too attached?,” I wonder as he pulls me to him to cuddle while he falls asleep. ⁣

“Is he too attached?,” I wonder as he asks me to carry him once more. ⁣

Then I remember:⁣

My body was his home. ⁣

It grew him. ⁣
Nourished him. ⁣
Birthed him. ⁣

Cuddles him. ⁣
Holds him. ⁣
Comforts and consoles him. ⁣

It’s his home. ⁣

I am his safe place.⁣
I’m his mama. ⁣
He’s my baby. ⁣

He’s not 𝘵𝘰𝘰 attached. ⁣
He’s attached. ⁣
And rightfully so.
