I really didn’t like kids. Curious confession from a mom of four boys.
The truth is, I like my kids now. But eleven years ago, my life as “Mom” was filled with tears, exhaustion and the sinking feeling that I was an utter failure!
Desperately needing some advice, I called my mom. She said something I think every new mom should hear, “Whitney, you’ve brought home a brand new baby who doesn’t know how to eat or even sleep through the night by himself. Sweetie, what you don’t know is that when you bring home a newborn baby, you are a newborn mom. You don’t expect Cooper to grow up overnight. Don’t expect that from yourself either.”
So where are all the new mom’s out there? Right now, breathe in and remind yourself, “I’m a new mom, and I’m going to learn and grow just right along with my baby.”
