I'm beginning to realize...

1 Having a baby is a lot harder than I thought it would be.  That statement may sound silly but it's true.

2 I don't think I'll ever feel caught up on sleep again or "not tired" anytime soon.

3 Working part time is still working.  And my "work" for the day certainly doesn't end at noon!

4 Life is hard.  No matter what.

5 My house is not perfect.  As soon as I get one room cleaned up, the other is a mess.  Dishes and laundry somehow multipy with the addition of one little person.

6 Nursing is my other part time job.

7 I think it's easy to see glimpses of people's lives from the outside without the struggles on the inside.  I struggle with thinking "This shouldn't be this hard for me!  So-and-so is dealing with these things just fine."

8 High intensity workouts are a thing of the past.  A walk with the stroller is an accomplishment now.  Maybe one day I'll run again.

9 I wouldn't trade anything for my little girl, now matter how challenging it gets. 

10 Sometimes you just need brownie batter a brownie.

You are doing GREAT! Every mom out there has feelings like she isn't doing enough or good enough. I do as well. All we can do is give our best. You're definitely doing that and your best is amazing!

Yes you can. Except now I just have a pan of brownies...I actually would rather just have the batter! Shouldn't have baked them :)
