Womanly Wednesday Guest Post

As a first time Mom, you have these expectations. From the desire to love every part of motherhood and this new journey to balancing it all to never losing yourself. Then reality sets in and you find that things aren’t always going to be sunshine and happiness. It’s in those sleep deprived hours that you find yourself wondering what you’ve got yourself into. The next thing you know, your tired mind starts running wild and the thought crosses you mind “What if I’m not made to be a Mama?”.

Let that sink in for a second. This is supposed to be the happiest time of your life. You are a mother. You’ve experienced a miracle in that of growing a baby. You have this precious new little one to love and dote on yet you can’t kick the feeling that you might be in over your head. Not only has this been my mindset before but over the last 3 years, I thought this often. I wonder who God thinks I am to bless me with a son that doesn’t require much sleep, is the pickiest of eaters and likes to push limits on a daily basis. Why didn’t I get a child that was sweet as sunshine and easy to raise? Because God knows me and knows that I am not one to back down. That Connor was made with me in mind, that God knows I couldn't be who I am as a Momma if it weren't for Connor.
