Congratulations are always in store for promotions, buying a home, or even a new career. Right? Praise is one of the kindest things we can offer another person. What about when it comes to new life? Like babies? Yes! We all love them and adore them. Especially, if we can give them back to their parents as soon as they start crying :]. This is where the adventures start for most of us women. Welcome to the unknown….
“All those clichés, those things you hear about having a baby and motherhood—all of them are true. And all of them are the most beautiful things you will ever experience.”Penelope Cruz
First time mothers always have so many question. What happens when..? Are they eating enough? Formula or breast feeding? I could go on and on, but point is you will make it! Whether you turn to your family, doctor, or the dreaded internet (I personally don’t suggest this method.) You’ll find an answer or twenty, at that point you ultimately choose what you think is best. By no means is caring for a newborn an easy task, but the love that is returned is so rewarding. When I found out I was pregnant it hit like a ton of bricks. Many others and I had the same thought, “I’m now responsible for another human being.” Ahhh….
As the months fly by, preparing is a necessity for welcoming baby home. In the midst of everything you’re taking on, you sometimes forget about yourself. When you feel this way. Stop right there! Take some you time! Momma go to the spa, hang out with girlfriends, or even kick back and relax on the couch! You deserve it, creating a human being is exhausting! Especially if you work a full-time job, or are a single mother taking everything on alone. (Been there)
