A million times harder than you would think.
Its hard to let go of trying to be perfect all the time, and just do what works for you at that moment. I read the best quote over today over at Jessica’s blog…
“who cares if you don’t have a catalog house. who cares if you need antidepressants. who cares if you don’t wear makeup except on sundays. who cares if your baby isn’t wearing suede fringed moccasins or if you don’t fulfill all of your pinterest dreams. guess what? just be you and be happy with you.”
Its hard when it takes over an hour to get your crying baby to sleep and then she wakes up 15 minutes later.
But the hardest thing of all, is imagining that I didn’t get to see this whiny, bratty, perfect baby girl all day everyday. She has changed my life 100% and made it so overwhelming and exhausting but I wouldn’t give it up, even for a day. This smile makes it all worth it. And just when I think I’ve reached my limit, she always manages to put a smile on my face. Being a mom is the greatest feeling ever.
