I never realized how exhausted, happy, manic & sappy you can feel all at the same time. I feel like in a lot of ways being a mom is exactly how I pictured it & then in a lot of ways my world has been totally rocked by even just one tiny human being.
Since becoming a mom I have so much more compassion for other moms because we are ALL in this together. We are all a few days overdue for a shower & all living off of caffine & granola bars. We all just deserve a donut where the calories don't count & a nice long shower without getting the shower curtain pulled down on you.
Being a stay at home mom has it's up & downs. Some days I drink a lot of caffine & clean the whole house & feel a million bucks & then other days we just crawl back in bed, watch some Ellen & start over because we can but the beautiful thing about being a stay at home mom is nobody knows & nobody cares! haha!
At the end of the day it all just comes down to you gave it your all & that's all that matters. The way my little baby looks at me when I got get him up from his nap makes every single hard moment worth it. Motherhood so far has taught me a lot of patience & a lot about living in the moment & not letting the little things bring you down.
Being a mom sure isn't easy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
We had some mommy & me pictures taken a couple weeks ago taken by the incredible Cecilia Harvard & i'm obsessed with every single picture. She captured my feelings on motherhood perfectly.
