Unexpected Complication of Having Two Mommies

From a fascinating article in the New York Times Magazine — When Mom and Dad Share it All:

(The article is about a concept called equally shared parenting — more on that later. One section is about same-sex parents.)

Harlyn Aizley, mother of a 6-year-old daughter, describes the moment that her then-partner, Faith Soloway, first took their newborn in her arms in the delivery room. “Just moments after I gave birth,” Aizley writes in the anthology “Confessions of the Other Mother: Nonbiological Lesbian Moms Tell All,” “Faith scooped up the baby, cooed into her squishy newborn face and said: ‘Hello there. I’m your mommy.’ I wanted to kill her. Faith, that is. I wanted to be Mommy, the only  Mommy.”

Well, yeah.
