Why having a baby is such hard work

I know we hear it a lot from moms out there – “babies are hard work” !

Well they were right ! 🙈 Being a first time mom you don’t really realize how much of your time a child would take , and its not just the attention (which to me is the best part) but your other chores.

My whole day revolves around getting my baby to nap and eat at the right time ! Routine in this matter sucks ha ha it leaves no room for spontaneity or unplanned events .

In between these naps (which are sometimes only half an hour) I need to get to work (luckily we live on the same property as our lodge) and wash and make myself presentable and cook breakfast and dinner and make food for my baby and wash and sterilize bottles and and and and … there just never seem to be enough hours in the day to get to Everything!

That whole thing about “sleep when the baby sleeps” only works when you have a newborn, this type of sympathy disappears very quickly as your baby gets older and you become less emotional (admit it, we were all a wreck those first few days at home).

At the end of the day , you just got to keep on keeping on, there is no down time, nor do you get to quit because you do not feel well or you are having a bad day, motherhood builds character like no other situation in life, you learn selflessness in its purest form, and a type of love that no words can describe.

What an honor to be called mama !

Little Feet and Tiny Toes

Aren’t baby feet just the best ? Like seriously , its my favorite part on my little girl , just to see that perfection in such miniature form ❤️

There is no way that anyone can look at a newborn and tell me that they don’t believe in God. 🙏🏻

Hearing your baby cry for the first time changes EVERYTHING , everything you thought was important just isn’t anymore, little fights and grudges seem like such a waste of time, the love you have or thought you had for people just does not compare , being a mom humbles you , for me it felt like all the little selfish thoughts I used to have disappeared , my baby girl became my everything in a sense , my husband still holds my heart , but this is just different , it’s overwhelming love , it really is like seeing your heart on the outside of your body !
