Our family is traveling between two homes quite a lot. One home is Slovenia, which is also our birth country and our first home where we spent most of our lives and the second home is Montenegro, where we live now for about three years already.
So when we travel we always travel separately... me and our daughter Isabella are flying, daddy is driving. Why? No, he’s not afraid of flying, hehe. There’s also a cute and furry part of our family, two dogs. Doberman and chihuahua, so they all travel together in car.
Beside so many flights me and our little girl went through, here’s one I didn’t really like. Few months ago, when we were flying to Montenegro, Isabella slept for the whole flight on my chest, from taking off to landing. She was breastfeeding and sleeping, didn’t let go my breast for a second. So this was a good part. But meanwhile, we had a strong turbulence for almost the whole flight that really got me scared (and I don’t get scared easily!). I’m that crazy adrenaline person, who really likes heights, flying, speed, bungee jumping and things like that. But I never before experienced such a strong turbulence as that day as well.
So this got me thinking, is it just the fact, that I’m a mother now and while holding my baby in my arms makes me scared of thought, that anything bad would happened to her... ‘cause I really see myself change at this point, where there’s just a slight chance of danger (not even for real, but in my head mostly).
Are any of you mommies having similar experience or thoughts? I think the fear of a mother for her child is natural and it was given to us as a gift, to always have that feeling to protect your child no matter what! ...or I’m complicating? Let me know mamma, write down your thoughts and share them with us!
