today i wore motherhood (2/365)

today i wore motherhood.
i was clothed in spit up and wrinkles and crumbs and snot.
my face was made up with hormones and exhaustion.
i carried the scent of old breastmilk, sweat, and a light undertone of baby pee.
my hair was done in grease and tangles and styled in a messy bun.
today i wore motherhood.
and it was beautiful.
