I was warned about this, but that doesn’t make the reality any easier to swallow. The only certainty of motherhood is that there will always be uncertainty. I’ve recently experienced a rude awakening after a blissful 2 month period of uninterrupted sleep. My 13-month-old is now waking up 3 times a night. Yup, you read that right. 3 times. She’s regressed to being a newborn again and frankly, I can’t deal.
Proud mama alert: My 11-month-old baby girl has recently taken her first steps! While extremely exciting, this development has opened up a whole new world of hurt—literally. In the few days that she has officially been walking, she’s had two scary tumbles.
It always seems like a good idea at the time. I'll plan an elaborate Thanksgiving menu and convince myself that it'll only take a few hours to prep and cook everything. It never does.
It’s impossible to deny, having a baby changes everything!
Inhale..... I am....
I am balanced.....
As these words hung in my mind during a recent morning's meditation, I began to realize that I didn't even know what this meant for me or what this would look like in my world.
