I love the way my teeth feel after a cleaning. I was really looking forward to going today to have a few moments to myself. & looks like I'm getting more wisdom hairs up top which is about right considering my life this past year. Lol
I'm smiling here, but yesterday was a rough day for me. Hormones were all over the place, not sleeping great, & just waking up every day doing what I have to do in this new role of "mom". It's been tough & confusing at times realizing that this is my new normal. There are times I've never felt more like myself & who God created me to be & there are other times when I don't recognize who I am. It can be confusing, frustrating, & overwhelming as I adjust to this new thing called #motherhood.
I'm so thankful for my daughter, however, yesterday I was about one step away from moving to the south of France & cutting my ear off if you know what I mean. Painting has become really therapeutic for me. I'm also super thankful for my family, fiancé, & the few close friends/fellow mom's I have that have helped me & reassure me that it's ok & normal....to give myself time. My mom told me it took 9 months to grow the baby so it's going to take some time after to get back to "normal". In some ways, I will never be the same. & that's ok. As crazy as it can be, it's also beautiful. Just not in the moments when I'm having a meltdown. Lol #vangogh #looneytoon #momlife #motherhood #thereal #hormones #8monthspostpartum
