Life is so weird right now. On one hand, I feel like my whole life is this little guy. If I go to a coffee shop, he comes with. On some days when I go into the office for work, he comes with (a great perk, actually!). I go pick up groceries, he comes with. Walks at the park? He comes with. You get the idea. It’s such a weird adjustment because you love this tiny human so much and yet all the sudden your life is completely tied to theirs and you’re like, “who even am I without this baby anymore?” It’s such an odd feeling. And to pile right on top of it, I still fall asleep at night and wonder if I’m doing enough. How is that even possible? I guess that’s the #momguilt everyone always talks about!
All this rambling is to say, I think it’s normal to feel like this. And I think it’s important to make it known that it’s a real thing - On instagram, it’s all smiles and happy and cuteness baby overload. But in real life, I have a tiny human that is seemingly permanently attached to me, and it’s ok for that to bring complicated feelings. Life is real - the more we talk about the realness of life, the better off we all are. It may not always be pretty or wrapped up in a bow, but I’m seeking to be more vulnerable, because in doing so, we are all invited to take off a little of the lacquer we feel like we have to keep on all the time. Even if you don’t feel like you can anywhere else, you can always let your hair down with me! “What makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful” - Brene Brown
