My Favorite Piece of Advice
Don't sweat the small stuff.
This too will pass.
I know the above sayings can seem trite but really, they are so true. When you are up at 2am, over tired and cranky yourself, but your baby just won't get to sleep, "this too will pass." Or when you are wiping up spilled food off the table, floor, bottom of your pants, "don't sweat the small stuff."
It is easy to get mired done in the troubles of every day life and learning to adjust to a tiny human in your life who needs your constant attention. Somedays you will question yourself and other times you will think, I have no idea what I am doing.
Here's a little secret... none of us really know what we are doing.
Yet, we move on, the human race keeps going on and we love on our previous babies, whether they be our only and one or children for whom love grew in our heart.
Don't give up and give in to the struggle and there will be times you want to just give in, you have had enough. You are not alone, there are thousands of moms, feeling just like you.
Don't sweat the small stuff, spills and messes can be fixed. You will eventually get to sleep again.
This too will pass. The moments of joy and sadness will come and go, like the ocean's waves.
Having children is an adventure that you can never truly plan for or be completely prepared and that's ok.
