Dear New Mom,
Holy ISH, you just did that!
You just had a baby.
You get to take that perfect little squish home with you.
Oh and you get a fun “free” bag of post-baby drugs/sprays. I’ll get to that another time.
This is the moment you’ve waited to come for 9, let’s call it what it is…10 months!
I KNOW you’re SCARED sh*tless. You were a CHAMPION in that room. Your baby is out. You can see his eyes, count his toes, and kiss his nose.
Friend, what got me through those fragile hours of doubting my skills as a mom was this:
You are exactly who your baby needs.
It’s that SIMPLE.
Yes, you will have weak days. You might even seek comfort in Large McDonalds French Fries at times. Tears are inevitable (I haven’t met one new mom who hasn’t had a breakdown). You will be sleep deprived. You will get pooped or spit up on. You will lose track of your last shower.
But one thing will NEVER change.
You are the perfect mama for your baby.
Then you will wake up and that baby you had is 2.5 years old & you’re pregnant with your second. It goes by fast. You’ve got this.
