Being a first time mom means:
1.Your coffee is always cold
2.You no longer chew your food
Instead, you devour your food with one hand like a vacuum and rock your baby to sleep with the other.
3.Everyone wants to give you advice
Even the ones without children.
4.You worry ALL. THE. TIME.
Even when you dream, you worry your dream baby is choking on a carrot stick.
5.Phone calls from the people helping to care for your baby while you’re at work are scary AF
Is your baby really choking on a carrot stick?
6.You now know exhaustion like never before
Both physical and mental exhaustion. And all you really want is just 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
7.You’re not sure what you did with all that time you had before you had a baby
You used to say “I’m really busy” or “I’m exhausted” but really now?
8.Your clothes are never clean
So you’ve changed into your work outfit only for baby to puke on it again.
9.You’re a natural bouncer
With or without baby in hand.
10.Bath time is your new suicide sprints
11.Babies are stronger than you think
12.YOU are stronger than you think
You’re exhausted from a whole day at work or caregiving and just really want to crash in bed for a nice long nap. But you somehow find that last bit of energy left to read your baby a bedtime story or sing him a lullaby. And for that, you are an amazing mother.
