Since I was a little girl I’ve dreamed about growing up, getting married and having babies. Well, my dream has turned into reality but I never envisioned the way it was gonna go down even with the experience I had helping raise my nephews and nieces. One thing I want to point out is nothing – absolutely nothing in life can adequately prepare you for motherhood.
Kendall turned 6 months yesterday and I felt the need to share 6 things I’ve learned in my journey so far
- I’ve always been anxious and since I became a mom the world just seemed to become a scarier place. I constantly worry with this overwhelming need to protect this tiny baby from every potential evil and threat of the world.
- I have been asked a couple of times how I have managed to cope with being a mom, wife, blogger and fashion designer. When I became a mom I think I grew 6 extra pairs of hands and I find myself doing 5 things at the same time – which made me conclude that motherhood unlocks hidden super powers or something like that.
- Last Christmas I made a quick stop to a friends house and I was forced to stay for a party I didn’t plan for. After a couple of hours when I tried to change my baby’s diaper, I realized I had previously exhausted all her diapers with no spare clothes! How could this happen? the bag looked so full. I was ashamed and felt the judgemental looks coming from other moms, though I was told it happens. I got home immediately packed an emergency diaper bag and left it permanently in the trunk of the car.
- If you love to watch movies or read a book I’ve got news for you once you become a mum watching your baby learn to hold, coo and giggle, reach, roll over, crawl and do basically anything will be every form of entertainment you’ll enjoy.
- I’ve never really had the greatest relationship with my mom until I delivered my baby. After which, I began appreciating my mom. I have never stopped apologizing and appreciating her for being the best she could possibly be. Being a mom has not only made me see what makes her special but also made me appreciate the general essence of life.
- It’s okay to make mistakes. Making mistakes doesn’t make you a bad mom. Let’s face it babies don’t come with a manual and there is no award in parenting. You usually learn on the job and as long as you’re extra careful you will end up doing a great job.
Thanks for stopping by. I am still new at this and will really appreciate tips in the comment section on how to be a better mom and don’t forget to wish my baby a happy 1/2 birthday.
