Life was a little different one year ago 🤰🏻
.
The BIGGEST thing I have learned and am still working on is letting go of control after going through labor/birth and having Michael. I thought I had it down when it came to teaching, constantly reminding myself what was and was not in my control, but danggg having your own baby really really challenges you in this area!!
.
➡️ I had no clue my birth plan would be the total opposite of what I wanted.
➡️ I have no control over when Michael cries, when he naps, when he wakes up, when he sleeps, when he will be clingy, when he’s hungry, when he will be teething…the list goes on.
.
Keep working at this mommas. I know you feel my pain in this, too. It’s a blessing and a curse to have a free schedule but to also be on Michael’s schedule 😂 What has helped me is just sticking to routines instead of specific times for things. I don’t worry about what time it is, how long Michael has been napping, etc. I just go with the flow and do what I can when I can.
