So you might think I'm a terrible person for even saying this, but sometimes I struggle with being a mom. That first month after she was born was really rough. I like to call it the 4th trimester, which was much worse than any of the 3 trimesters of pregnancy. But after that first month, it started to get much better. Although most of the time I like being a mom now, there are a few things I am still struggling with. Maybe you other moms can help me out with some ideas....
How on earth do you possibly get a workout in? And what do you do for exercise? (I'm getting sick of stroller walking.)
How do you prioritize? And not feel bad about the stuff you don't get to? And feel productive?
How do you not feel trapped inside your house all day? And not feel lonely.
What hobbies do you have that you can do at home by yourself? (Most of the things I like to do are not the most "stay-at-home friendly".)
How do you not go crazy when you're up in the middle of the night? My mind seems to fret about things irrationally at 3 a.m.
How do you not feel guilty when you feel like your baby is making other people's lives harder or putting them out?
Anyway, even though I struggle with a few things, I'm so glad to have little Em around, and for the opportunity to be her mom. The precious little moments do make up for the struggles.
