Being First Time Mom/New Mom is Overwhelming

So about a week ago, I heard myself utter these words to a friend, “Oh being a mom of two is not as hard as I thought.” Boy did I eat the words today.

Now, its true we all have our good days and bad, but sometimes you just feel stuck in a rut. The truth is nothing particularly bad happened today. It is just everything seems a bit harder when you add not one but two kids to the equation.

Honestly it’s amazing that I even have a second for reflection. Thanks to a husband a couple of  nappers, I had a chance to  share these thoughts.

When you are a new mom it can be overwhelming to figure it all out.

Then you realize, you don’t. You just take it day by day, and as a Christian woman, I pray my way through it.

Getting out of the house seems to be an undertaking. I know ya’ll mamas out there feel me on this. I saw my mom struggle through it, and I thought “no it won’t be that hard for me.” Boy was I wrong. I now know exactly how my mom felt.

Babies are more than a blessing, they are a miracle, and I thank God for mine, but boy having a newborn and a toddler is some work! Shout out to all my mamas out there!

Can anyone relate? What do you do to get through those rough days?

By the way, as I finish this post, nap time is over. LOL. Hubby just called me and told me they are both awake and ready for mommy.

So, time to get back at it again. If you are experiencing a day like today, just know you are not alone.
