Any mom can attest to the ups and downs that motherhood brings with it, from anxiety, to fear, to joy. Even in these first seven weeks of being a mamma I have experienced emotions from all ends of the spectrum.
This particular post was inspired by a girls night which ended with both Luce and I leaving early, both in tears. As I cried on the drive home I wondered why she chose today to meltdown, and why she couldn’t just go to sleep when it was so obvious that she was exhausted. (I now know that we were experiencing what is called the “witching hour”.) It’s funny how I knew exactly what she needed, but could not seem to make her understand that crying about being tired was not as good as falling asleep. You can’t reason with a baby 🙂
