Becoming a mom has been the single most rewarding experience of my life. I know now a love that I never could have fathomed and I simply can’t imagine my life without my sweet P.
But amazing as it has been, becoming a mom has come with it’s fair share of challenges. I’ve struggled big time with learning to love the new “mom” me. After P was born, I was frustrated with my body. My pregnancy weight didn’t drop off as quickly as I hoped, my hair started falling out, and my boobs were too big for my old bras.
I’m was also way more emotional, more anxious. Things that I had previously let roll off my back began to bother me. I got my feelings hurt more easily. I was tired all the time. And I often worried that I’m wasn’t doing things right as a mom (still do).
But even with all the difficulties and insecurities, being a mom is so worth it. P is just perfect. Not perfect in the sense that she never cries or disobeys or tries to drive me crazy. But in the sense that she is the perfect little girl for me.
She’s the reason I get up in the morning, the sweet soul that keeps me going through long work days, and the smile that gives me peace as I head to bed each night. She brings me a joy I didn’t know was possible in this life, and as much as I want her to stay little forever, I also can’t wait to watch her grow and learn and walk through life making every step along the way just a little more beautiful.
BTW- One of the products I’ve started using recently that have really helped with some of the stretch marks I’m really self-conscious about is Phytopia Stretch Mark Essential Oil! Grab some on Amazon if you want to try it.
