Letter to new mums

Welcome to motherhood!
Its a rollercoaster journey, full of laughter, pain, worry, happiness.....In this year and three months since I became a mother myself, I've gone through so many changes myself as a woman, mother, wife & friend. I can't quite understand anymore how I used to live my life- it seems so dull, lifeless as it was..(though I do miss my lazy Sunday mornings!). And so much more changes from seeing my newborn to a strappy toddler whose joy in discovering life is ever so wonderous.

But now, you are just starting and my advise to you is to relax, enjoy your baby and forget the tornado that will be forming on your house. Don't let pride in the way and ask help if needed. Bond with your little one and keep calm in his presence - remember he can feel what you feel! and get back your energies. Once you settle down, and find your rythm everything will look easier. Last of all enjoy motherhood because getting angry or upset will loose you so much charm of seeing your child growing up.

May your very first mother's day be blessed with all your hearts' desire.

Very good advice. I second the bit about asking for help and trying not to be bothered by all the mess that was formerly your house. :)

Visiting from Mama Kat's. Thanks for sharing!
