My depression makes me want to stay in my bed all day and sleep it off like a bad hangover. But, you know, kids don’t let you do that. Kids need fed and changed and loved and snuggled .
Being a mom is weird. Your time is no longer run by the clock on the wall but your tiny babes growling tummy. So sometimes, your day will start at 4am… but your first cup of coffee doesn’t come until 9 or 10. And you guys – those days suck. I can’t sugar coat it.
Unfortunately, making money on the side for most moms means that we are taking the things that we are good at, that bring us joy in our quiet moments and finding a way to monetize them.
But in a few short weeks, our days will be shared with someone else; a baby boy who will turn our world upside down. You keep telling me you are so excited – but I know that it will be hard for both of us. Our snuggle time will be shared with a little baby. Our time to cook together and learn the ABCs will be interrupted by a hungry little baby that needs to be fed and snuggled.
