Beautiful words from a mama back at work
I try to tell myself I'm looking forward to buying clothes and getting my hair done again as if that's preferable to being with my baby. But honestly, on the hard stay at home mum days, yeah, getting my hair done is preferable. I think?
I hummed at a mama who's blood I was taking this evening, I think I was trying to calm her, humming is so second nature, I hope she enjoyed it.
We curl up in bed every night and co-sleep and breastfeed constantly in staunch defiance of everyone who has tried to tell me that I shouldn't do exactly that. I repeat the phrase "worry doesn't take away tomorrow's problems, it takes away today's joy" to myself about 20 times a day.
I used to believe in the journey from maiden to mother but I am learning that I'm actually a maiden who is mothering. Still me, there's just more of me, needed more.
Here is the good in the bad. And here is the bad in the good.
