Repost: Reflections on Motherhood

16 Mar

Some of the thoughts on here:

  • Breathe
  • Its ok to be scared
  • Meet other moms
  • Real men change diapers
  • Nobody really knows what they’re doing
  • You will miss your mom
  • Millions of people survive sleep deprivation
  • You are about to meet true love
  • You are the expert
  • Imperfect is the new perfect
  • Let Gramdma spoil them
  • You will make mistakes
  • This too shall pass
  • Your mom was right
  • Sleep now
  • You are beautiful
  • She will have your eyes
  • Take time to fit back into those jeans
  • He is going to get sick…and you will sit up all night just watching him breathe
  • Take time for yourself
  • Google doesn’t have children
  • Forgive yourself
  • Be brave
  • Its ok to want a break

Its amazing being a mom, amazing and exhausting, and scary and precious, I would never have thought I could love someone so instantly, so unconditionally and so fiercely.
