of course on top of my love of makeup and beauty I am first and foremost a mommy. I have a lot of new mommies on my Facebook and it’s safe to say that having a 6 month old and two toddlers has made me do a lot of thinking about what I wish I could’ve told myself when my daughter was born three years ago, but I can’t do that.. So maybe for other new moms out there I can help somehow.
If you’re a new mother with a messy house that can’t seem to find a moment to yourself.. If you secretly wish your tiny baby would grow up just a tiny bit and be a little less dependent on you so you can at least sleep through the night again, so you can go to the bathroom alone again, so you can watch a movie with your husband alone without him waking every hour to nurse. If you’re exhausted from hearing a baby cry all day and all you want is a little quiet time then just remember that one day your little one will be all grown up with a home of their own. You’ll have a spotless house. A silent house. No babies in your bed. An empty nest. They are only so little for such a little while, and when they are three you begin to wonder when they learned to put their shoes on themselves, dress themselves, put themselves to bed, tell you what they need, go to the bathroom by themselves.. You wonder where that tiny baby went. Don’t worry so much about sleep schedules, eating schedules, whether you’re holding the baby too much, what your mother thinks, what the book says, what Facebook says. Just love your tiny human the way you want to love your tiny human, because you will never look back and regret holding that sweet baby too much, or loving him too much. When they say it goes by quickly you don’t understand how right they are until those precious first months are gone forever. The days may pass slowly.. But the years.? They fly by.
