Through Her Eyes…

One thing about being a Mama that I truly enjoy is seeing life through my daughters point of view. No matter what we are doing; everything seems like such a big deal to her. Her reaction when she sees something for the first time is what I live for. The way she asks questions about things that intrigue her, seeing her hold conversations, laughing, enjoying life, is seriously the most rewarding part of being her Mom. Yet, nobody really prepares you for the way life becomes when you have a little to look after. That’s because its different for everyone. Some have daily routines, some live day to day going with the flow, and some (like me) take the chaos as it comes and wing it with what works for you. I’ve noticed lately that my patience is running a bit thin. Sure, I am 8 months pregnant and being moody comes along with it. No one said transitioning from one little to two would be a walk in the park. That doesn’t mean I am not going to try and perfect every little detail along the way… Today I learned that this might be what is causing me to lose my patience: PERFECTION. “It doesn’t exist,” so I’m told. I believe that it may not exist as a way of life but does exist inside my little. Obviously, this may be a biased opinion to some cause I am her Mother but that doesn’t change how I feel. From the moment I laid my eyes on her; I knew what “perfect” was. So, what I am here to remind myself today is that no matter how tough being a Mama can be all the struggle is worth it when I am with her. Seeing life through her eyes takes all my worries away. Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.

All The Feels Of A Preggo Mama

Where do I begin? The fact that I am carrying, growing, and nurturing a tiny human inside me blows my mind. My body was made to create a life, my body was made to give birth, and my body was made to feed my littles. Pregnancy is such an incredible blessing, I couldn’t thank God enough for this amazing gift. When I say all these rewarding aspects of pregnancy are beautiful in every way that does not mean there aren’t some unpleasant moments that come along with it. For instance; some women get sick and can’t eat anything without running to the bathroom a few moments after. As for me, I got what some may call “lucky” because I have a ravenous hunger to eat ALL the time. Yes, that sounds fun right? My partner got an eating buddy, yay! But in reality I have no in-between, I am either starving or so full it hurts. Its a day to day struggle but I’ve learned to eat smaller portions to avoid being uncomfortable which leads me to my next topic; WEIGHT GAIN. Every woman, big or small, will gain weight during their pregnancy. Whether it be 10 pounds to 60 pounds, it happens. With my first pregnancy I gained 50+lbs (on top of being a plus size Mama) and was very unhappy with myself after I delivered my beautiful little girl. It took forever to get that control that I was missing, back. Once I finally got it I became preggo again! I am happy to say that with this pregnancy I have managed to keep my gain under control and I am very pleased with how I am carrying. Next, lets discuss all things that have to do with your energy. Everyday I find myself completely winded from doing simple house chores. Its come to the point where the dishwasher has become my bestie, making the beds is very unnecessary since we crawl back into them anyways, and laundry takes 5 -7 business days to get back into the drawers. Growing a human takes it all from you, so sorry if my house isn’t as clean as it once was. I promise that its only temporary and things will get back into routine as soon as I’m up to it! I just want to take the time to let all the women in the world know, YOU ARE AMAZING.
