Read it how you see it because that’s the truth. People ( I mean childless people ) automatically assume that once a person has a child or children that their capability of carrying a conversation with people has vanished.
To those mamas expecting:
You and only YOU determine the turn your life will take after have your child. Having a baby does not hold you back from exploring the world, it may mean knowing every type of baby product on the market but it won’t mean forgetting the way to your favourite desert place.
Surround yourself with friends that are supportive of your journey and respect the fact that your life style is about to change dramatically. You most probably will always talk about your baby.. I know I know I said it too before I had my LO “I’ll never be that mum”.. Accept it, aslong as your circle consists of people excited for your journey into motherhood then that’s all that really matters and in time you’ll notice that you yourself have changed in ways.
To my lovely mamas’
I get it we all have that guilty feeling if we leave our little ones and enjoy ourselves for a couple of hours. Whether it be getting the regrowth sorted or having a coffee by the beach, take a breather you deserve it. Something that works for me, I plan those times around my LO’s nap times. For some odd reason I feel a little less guilty when I do this, knowing he’s asleep and not looking around for me helps a lot. That way he’s comfortable and so am I.
So my conclusion is plan a movie night/lunch date, either with your partner or friends, settle your LO to bed or have someone mind them while they’re asleep.. You’ll feel great knowing you’ve met their needs now you’re meeting yours.
The quote above makes all the sense in the world, happy you equals happy mum !
