Last year, Mother's day was rough for me. I had a 6 Month old who still didn't sleep much and I was still battling PPD pretty heavily.
|Us, last mother's day|
But I wasn't ready for the emotional change. I wasn't ready for the total change of how I spent my time. I wasn't ready to get up at 6am for the rest of my life (or until he is, what, 14?)
It probably took me the entire first year to get past most of the issues I had. Now, at nearly 17 months old, I feel most days like "I got this!" There are still days where I have little melt downs because I am so tired or frustrated. Most days are awesome.
Then there are mornings where he accidentally whacks me in the face with my keys and I cry in the kitchen while Lee stands there not really knowing what to do...
Being a mother has changed me in major ways, and most of them I like. I am a lot more straightforward, I have to make decisions faster, and I have learned to let the little stuff go.
How has motherhood changed you?
