Mama bear. Not mama cat (although cougars can be pretty vicious) Mama BEAR. To show power. The power of the pull mamas feel to protect their babies is strong. From “a girl teased me at school” to a runny nose I just want to protect my babies. Keep them safe and happy and healthy. It’s part of what I live for. It’s what being their mama means to me…protecting their spiritual, physical, emotional and mental health.
