Let me guess: you haven’t slept, really slept, in days. You may have a hair or clothing accessory made from bodily fluids from your new bundle of joy. You may also be wondering “Is it supposed to be this hard? Maybe I’m going at this wrong…” Nope, you’re not! In fact, you’re probably doing a fantastic job – you’ll know you are when they smile at you or call you “Mama.” Talk to other Moms – laugh and cry at the challenges and craziness. Ask someone else to make dinner. Ignore the crumbs in your car/on the floor/in your bra. Live in the moment and hope for the future.
