It has been 3 weeks since our little bundle of joy was born, and..... we're still alive! I have learned a few things in just 3 short weeks. I also have a new respect for parents (and specially moms) everywhere. I gotta tell you, I feel sorta of wimpy lately. This whole parenting thing is kicking my butt. I find myself wanting to complain every second of every day. I'm not sure how moms manage to get dressed every morning, I'm lucky if I take a shower.
So what have I learned in these 3 weeks?
Sleep is precious! You want a sure way to torture someone? Don't let them sleep. Seriously!
It's easy to worry. Maybe it comes with the territory.
Everybody has an opinion. And a different one! Even people who don't have kids love telling us what we should do.
A day can go by so slowly, yet so quickly. It seems like the day drags on, and yet a whole day will go by and I get nothing done.
I miss my husband. Alone time is a thing of the past. It seems like all we do is take turns watching the baby while the other does something else.
These past 3 weeks have been extra tough, but extra growing. God has really given me a lot of patience (that I know I don't have) with our son. The biggest lesson I have learned is that I need to be intentional. Wether it's my time with The Lord, my husband, or my son. I can't just let this season of life happen.
What are the biggest things you have learned as a mother?
