Lies! It gets easier they say. I think almost every single person said that to me when Ezra was born. Wait until he’s 6 months. It will be so much easier. Other would say, wait until he’s 9 months, it so much better. I would be sitting at a restaurant or at the mall and randomly people would tell me that. At first I was excited and started the count down to 6 months and then 9 months and then 1 year. I soon realized it was all lies!
Let me tell you something. It does not get easier. It’s different and there are different challenges but it’s not easier at all. Certain aspects are easier, like once your child learns to sit up and entertain themselves with a toy, it’s a nice distraction, but then they learn to crawl and walk and here we go again, running after them like a maniac. So there are pros and there are cons to every month and age I am sure. Just please don’t say it gets easier. They still wake up in the middle of the night, they still cry when they’re upset, when they’re sick, forget it! We’re a nervous wreck! Oh and teething, that Sh@*% never ends until they’re like 3 so what’s easy about that?
Being a mom is nonstop work, from day to night, from age 0 to age 100. It never ends and that’s not a bad thing. We lose sleep, sometimes we even lose ourselves, some of us lose relationships, a lot of things change for moms. Nothing is easy, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t wonderful! Every single headache, tear, yell, disappointment, failure is always filled with so much love. Unconditional love that surpasses every difficult time. Am I right? Who agrees? I’m sure there are moms who make it look easy, but we all know the truth. ( wink, wink)
Let’s keep it real! #realtalk
