Social Scenario
It's been ages since you've had lunch with your friends since having your second child. You are excited to leave the baby at home with your mother so you can meet them for brunch and catch up. You arrive at the restaurant, greet each other, then place your order. One of your friends makes a face and questions your decision to order a mimosa. Aren't you nursing? Should you be drinking that? She is horrified when you discuss your excitement to return to work, and comments that since your significant other makes a large salary, it should be your job to stay home and raise your child. How do you respond?

Before you speak, take inventory of your emotions. What bodily sensations are you experiencing? How does your head, stomach, and heart feel?

You might say 'I don't see it that way. I'm happy that motherhood can look different for different people.'
