Cross-posting here. HI everyone- My memoir about my quest for motherhood across two continents, two decades, and two thousand yoga poses ("Here Comes the Sun") just came out. I was really lucky to have published excerpts in The New York Times "Motherlode" blog, Huffpo, Shambhala Sun, Yoga Journal, Manifest-Station and more. That helped secure a publisher. Thanks to all and good luck with your books and with motherhood!

24/7 forever! Good news!     And we write!

The hardest part about being a mother is the way God set it up.

At the beginning, that little one is deep inside you, needs you for everything - for life, for nurturing, for warmth. At birth comes the first separation, but she still needs... needs... needs... you. They she learns to walk, run, play, go to school.

Every wondrous step is a separation - not a brokenness but a rich, deep part of the growing up process. And you - and I remain a mother always ... but in different ways, from a distance, as an advisor? as a listener? as a last resort? So run, walk, be your separate self and you will teach your children about interdependence.... you would do anything for them but you have to take care of yourself in order to stay on the job.

Too funny, Sandra!

Wow, Tracy! Best of Luck! My husband made me laugh one day.  I've been moody and my eight-year-old has been moody too.  He says, "You're going off and she's going on. Someone has to continue the tradition." My poor husband is surrounded.

Hi I'm new to the group. I have been married for 15 years to my high school sweetheart, mother of two beautiful children TJ 12 and MacKenzie 10, healthcare professional 15 years and the author of three published romance novels: Only You and Me, Inseparable and Another Part of Me. I enjoy reading books, writing, hanging out with my family, traveling on the road or on paper and being creative. I am excited about being a part of She Writes!

Hi from another older mother, Sandra! I'll be 48 in a few weeks, too, and had my first (naturally, if you can believe the luck) at 46. So I'm dealing with hot flashes and teething at the same time! Hard but worth it. All my best to you and yours.

New to the group and a mother of two beautiful daughters age 8 and 9.  I'm an older mother (will be 48 soon!) and has been writing since I was 12.  The girls keep me busy as well as life but I will try to be active here.  My website is and my blogs  are and!writing-inspiration/c16j6.  I will post on my She Writes blog with a links to the above blogs.

Look forward to connecting with you!!writing-inspiration/c16j6

Hello, I am new here. I look forward to being part of Mother Writer.

I have enjoyed and learned from all the comments. I am a late bloomer writer. I went to college at age 48-52 and even won an award for writing about my mother. I feel as mothers we have so much to offer at any age, and I know now at 56 I have something different to share than when I was 36. 

Thank you for this opportunity!
