Join me on my mother’s day journey for a moment. I love how I can do stuff in SL that I wouldn’t normally be able to do in the RL. I can go on hikes without losing my breath. I can fly without cringing at the thought of heights…well mostly, I cannot bungee jump in any realm! Nope! Not gonna happen! I can have a farm and not “die” of asthma and allergy problems. The best part is I can have horses even though I’ve never been around horses in RL, I can in SL. SL is an amazing place for me that expanded my horizons and lets me do things that I can’t normally do in RL and has given me many friends from all over the world. I can even be a mother.
Motherhood is not anything I will ever see in my RL. Not many know this about my first life, but I can’t have kids. I can physically have kids carry to term, but it’s a high-risk pregnancy with a lot of complications that could possibly end in death, so the advice of doctors is to not have kids. It saddens me that I can’t because I love kids…they’re fun.
So, in SL, when I found out I could have kids, I did! I started with a daughter in 2010 from Zooby. She is and always will be my first love. Her name is Elizabeth Anne. While she’s “just a prim baby” to some people, she represents an experience that I wouldn’t have had if it weren’t for SL. Then I had twins in 2015, Sarah Grace and Michael. They are Funsies babies, interactive and realistic. And then recently, I had twins again, Emma and Rose, with Daddy. I cherish them all.
I know it’s weird to some people to “cherish” a “prim,” but they represent something I can’t do in my first life and are very important to me. So while I’m not a mother, in reality, I am one in SL. It does irk me when I hear someone belittle this and put me down for it, but they don’t matter. Anyone vital to my life, in any realm, will understand. So, regardless if you are a mother in real life or you are a mother in SL, Happy Mother’s Day! May your day be filled with sunshine and roses, little baby kisses and more! May you see the joy in life and the joy in being a mom…and may you cherish your mothers, fathers, siblings, and friends!
