i still exist…


I smell like sour milk.

I live in nursing tanks and robes.

I’ve realized that four hours of sleep is a luxury.

I’m seeing hours of the day and night that I haven’t seen in years.

My entire day revolves around feeding, diaper changes and naps.

My brain doesn’t function as well as I’d like it to.

Stitches somewhere in your hooha aren’t nice. I refuse to figure out where they are, exactly. It’s on a need to know basis and I definitely do not need to know.

I love showers more than I’ve ever loved showers before.

My existence is relegated to the bedroom and bathroom…to the point Tim moved the TV from the loft into it. This is monumental because we’ve never had a TV in the bedroom.

I now understand why motherhood is a club that you cannot understand until you have a child of your own.

    It’s really so true….you want to understand (especially when you’re preggo), but you just don’t get it until you are a mom. Welcome to the club mommy.

    So happy for you. And I’m sure I don’t get it. But I do enjoy reading you describe it.

    Aww! Glad to hear from you, friend! And glad you are surviving and thriving in the first weeks of motherhood. So proud of you! (and uh, just thinking about stitches there makes me cringe…there.). XOXO!

    At first I thought he moved the TV into the bathroom, which would have been pretty awesome.

    Though it may not seem like it now, it does get better. Sort of. Just remember not to do anything sort of resembling a squat. I did that after my first and may or may not have popped a stitch, or two. Glad to hear things are going relatively good πŸ™‚

    Oh yes, I remember those days…showers were so sacred and still are. πŸ˜‰ Congrats on your beautiful little guy. I love his name!

    My Hoo ha hurts just hearing the word “stitch.” So glad to hear you are doing well!

    Sounds like fun! It’s definitely worth it in the end.

    I’m so glad things are going reasonably well πŸ™‚ How are the fur-kids taking the new addition?

    Welcome to the Motherhood Club! It’s tough–especially in the beginning. The first six months are a blur! I didn’t want to see my stitches either. I didn’t ask how many were there…I just wanted them to do their thing and then be on their merry way. Hang in there, mama!

    Yaaaaay for Kellan! The name reveal was so exciting, and I super love it. He’s gorgeous, and you’re finding your way… Can’t wait to hear more from you. Take it EASY Momma Boosh. This isn’t a competition to see whose ladybits are the heartiest. πŸ˜‰

    What you say is soooo true. All of it. Welcome to the club! Glad to hear things are going as they should. It definitely does get better, as far as the hooha, the sleep, the wardrobe, the radius you feel like traveling, and the limited repertoire of activities. Gradually. Very gradually. Hang in there, you’re doing great!

    Yes, yes, and yes. I can relate to every single point you’ve listed. Isn’t motherhood grand? πŸ˜‰
