If you fell victim to my ultra negative post yesterday, I'm sorry.
I was about to go back and delete it when I read the comments. Turns out I'm not the only one who feels like that sometimes. As silly as it might be, I really need to hear I'm not the only one. Good or bad, I'm the type of person who needs my feelings validated. Maybe that's a big reason why I blog. Not only do I like to share my story, but I also like to read the story of others who go through the same things.
Still, I know no one likes a complainer, sorry about that, but it's hard to be honest without acknowledging when things are hard. Whaddyagonnado?
Having a baby has been an amazing experience. I love so many things about it. But no one told me how hard it can be. I know a lot of people ease into motherhood seamlessly, but a lot of people don't. I'm not alone. I wish someone had told me how hard the adjustment to motherhood can be, regardless of how much you love your precious baby! Seriously, life is at least 17 times harder when you're severely sleep deprived. There were times when I'd cry and then cry harder because I was frustrated with myself for crying! Plus, life doesn't stop. The world doesn't care that you just had a baby and sometimes hard things still happen!
I had a lot more to say but now I'm drawing a blank. I guess that means it's time to share super cute pictures of my amazingly adorable baby with you.
I really am so blessed.
I hope I didn't discourage anyone. Motherhood is hard, but it's also all kinds of wonderful.
p.s. If you're a mom and could use some encouragement (couldn't we all?) some pretty good encouragement can be found here: http://pinterest.com/pin/83598136805909645/
