Have you ever met a mom like you? You know, the kind of mom who makes thematic sense out of her life, she knows what time she’s spending with her kids and sticks to it? The kind of mom who would rather spend quality time with her kids than go out partying all night long? The kind of mom who gets more irritated when her husband leaves for work early than when he oversleeps on his day off?
The kind of mom who is obsessed with her baby but still finds the courage to give half of herself to her parents? That’s me. You probably can relate. I’ve been there! It takes a special woman to step into motherhood without losing herself in the process. But here are some things you need to know if you want to be that lady:
It’s not an easy job
Well, it’s not easy by any stretch of the imagination! All the things you used to love doing suddenly don’t seem to exist. You’re not the same person you were before you were pregnant. You might even wonder if you’re a “real” mom or not. Your friends who were pregnant before may comment on how they miss the “old” you. You’ll have to decide for yourself what kinds of things are appropriate to tell other pregnant friends about you and whether or not you want to continue keeping those things to yourself.
Pregnancy is a time of great change and upheaval
You’re going to go through withdrawal, there’s no doubt about it. You’re going to feel like a completely different person than you were before you became a mom. It will change you in ways you might not even realize you need. You may even feel like a failure at times because, well, you know, you’re not where you want to be. Trust me, it’ll pass.
Just being willing to open your heart to your baby and let him or her see you as you are, regardless of what you look like or how you feel, is a major change for a mom. You’ll have to get used to expressing yourself through your emotions and having conversations that don’t involve mind-numbing statistics.
Babies are miracles but they take time to grow up
The best thing you can do for your baby is to be there for your kids when they need you. If you’re not in the mood to hang out or are feeling overworked, make it clear to them that you don’t want to hang out or play with them. Explain why you’re not feeling well and take care of your kids first. Be there when they need you, but don’t feel pressured to be there for everything that happens. You don’t have to do everything your kids want to do. Let them make mistakes, too. They’re just trying to grow up and make mistakes of their own.
Parents are parents, too
You’re going to make mistakes, of course. Taking care of kids is hard work and requires incredible self-discipline. But your parents aren’t going to be there for you 24/7, either. Your parents are going to go to work and expect you to do the same. If you need a break, take one. Just, don’t forget about them when you get back to it. As a parent, you have to set a good example for your kids.
There will be stress. But it will pass
You don’t know how long you’re going to be a mom. You don’t know what your body will be like when you’re pregnant or have kids of your own. You don’t know what your life will be like. You don’t know what challenges or decisions you’ll need to make. All you know is that you want this baby so much, and you’re scared that something will happen to you if you’ve left too much alone with it.
Stress will come in many forms during your pregnancy, but the key is to recognize it and deal with it. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, remember there are people who love you and want to help. If you’re in a position of weakness, such as carrying a heavy burden or dealing with an illness, remember you don’t have to do this on your own.
You’ll make mistakes at first but that just serves as a learning opportunity
It is human nature to make mistakes, and being a parent is no exception. Learning from your mistakes while growing as a person is the only way to go. Try your best to learn from your mistakes and don’t let your ego get in the way of you accepting your limitations. You’ll be a much better parent when you set good examples for your kids.
You’ll Want to Spend More Time with Your Kids
Having a baby will change your whole outlook on life. It will force you to grow up quickly and make some serious changes in your life. But the good news is that your kids will be able to see this transformation in you as well. Your kid will see you as a more independent, responsible person who is available to them when they need you. They may even start to look to you for answers to their questions. This is a great opportunity for you to let them see you as you really are.
Kids need to see their parents as people who are trying to do the best they can. As a parent, you need to set an example for your kids. If you want to spend more time with them, spend less time with your parents. Spend more time with your baby and less time with your parents. If you want to be a parent, just be a parent. Don’t add more stress or demands to your life.
You’re going to have to make some tough decisions during your pregnancy, and you may even have to make some difficult decisions that will affect your family in the long term. Accepting these challenges will make you a stronger, wiser person and allow you to be a better parent to your kids in the long run.
You’ll have the ability to take care of yourself and your baby better now, and you’ll be able to offer your family support when they need it the most. Don’t miss out on these amazing opportunities because you’re afraid you’ll lose your mind if you don’t do something “heavy”. You’re going to be a great mom.
The biggest thing to remember when you’re a new mom is that you’re the luckiest person in the world. You get to be a parent for the rest of your life, and you’ll still be able to work and go to school and do all the things you wanted to do before having kids. You’ll still be able to go out with friends, meet new people and have great experiences. The most important thing you can do is to take care of yourself and your kids and make the most of the opportunities life has to offer.
