I am a first-time mother and I have confessions to make and nobody said it was easy! (insert Coldplay here)
Whoever said that motherhood is colorful like unicorn does, are you for real girl? you need a slap in the face. But if you meant by colorful like the poops my baby is making, then that for sure is the reality.
You carry your baby for 9 months, suffers morning sickness, endure the pain during labor and on top of that you gained so much weight that you asked yourself; Am I a mama ? or a mama-po-ta-mus? and it does not end there, you freakin` endure the sleepless nights when the baby is out.
Did I mention the poopies? ahhhhh the poopies…… they are so soft, colorful and the smell…….. the smell lingers you know.
Motherhood is not for the wimps! you gotta have a strong arms and talent with multitasking. Just like when you are doing household chores then your baby has this SEPANX issue. No problem! carry baby with one arm. JUST GREAT!
Have you ever been to a battlefield? I think I do. Every time I put my baby to sleep, he fights it even though he is so sleepy. He will toss around the bed like crazy or screamed at you! It felt like I was one of the roman soldiers in a roman battle movie. Be ready with all the slaps in the face and head bumps. Ouch!
You will also learn new talents such as singing, dancing, making weird faces and all kinds of stuff just to calm down your bossy baby. Imagine your baby cries like crazy in the middle of the night and you lived in a small apartment like ours, do you know how frustrating it is? thinking my neighbors will probably kill me for having a noisy baby. Or the worst thing is they`ll call the social workers telling them that I AM A BAD MOTHER!
Being a Mother is a tough job! you gotta be emotionally and psychologically CAPABLE. The feeling of helplessness that you end up asking yourself AM I DOING THIS RIGHT or AM I NOT GOOD ENOUGH?
But with all of this, I still can`t stop loving my child. I grew in love with him more and more each day passes by. All the frustrations I get when he cried, will be washed away when he got to smile back at me. The poops? I am already familiar with it and It`s not disgusting at all. Trust me!
This may be the toughest JOB that I am into with no salary at all, but I don`t care and I won’t give up in exchange for some high paying salary. For this JOB is not JUST A JOB it is a LIFELONG COMMITMENT and a CHOICE. I chose to be a mother and I am happy and loving it.
I am not SUGAR-COATING it but REALLY….
it does SUCK sometimes 😜 😝 😛
