When you become a mom, you become apart of a special club. A club that is reserved for women who have spread their love to another being. Often people say motherhood is beautiful. Motherhood is easy. Motherhood is perfect.
They forget to say a lot!
Motherhood is messy. The messes start from the minute you conceive. You are throwing up, you are losing your independence, you are losing your body, but instead you are gaining the biggest love you could ever imagine.
Motherhood is messy after giving birth. From the spit ups to diaper changes and everything in between. I never knew a small creature could make such a mess but it is the best thing and I would never change it for the world.
Motherhood is exhausting. It is okay to be tired. It is okay to feel like a bad mom. Caring for a new human is mentally and physically exhausting. Take that nap or bath, moms need alone time too.
Motherhood is terrifying. You are in charge of a human. You have the ability to mold a life and that is a huge responsibility. You are responsible for this child. You are their provider of food, love and shelter. You are at their beck and call 24/7 and it is scary. They will fall, they will cry, and guess what, they will be okay.
Motherhood is a journey that is different for everyone. Try not to compare yourself because you are doing the best for you and your baby in your situation. Motherhood is beautiful because of its complexity! You are a good mom. You are the best mom for your baby and never let anyone tell you differently.
