Life as a New Mom

A first-time mom adjusting to her new everything

Things I never expected

1 Comment

  • Changing my shirt in the middle of night because Widget vomited down the inside of my bra
  • Doing everything one-handed because Widget does not like being alone
  • Having massive (for me) boobs that aren’t as much fun as I’d hoped.  I blame thrush.
  • Having moments when I can’t console him, his face is the color of steak, and I wonder what I’m doing wrong as a mother
  • The hilarious cranky faces Widget makes
  • Drool all over me, ALL the time.  Seriously.  All the time.
  • How difficult baby nails are to cut and how desperate I’d be for the Claws of Pain to let go of my neck skin
  • How much Widget’s smile looks like my Daddy’s

One thought on “Things I never expected

  1. Ah! Throwing up on you at night is the worst because you’re already disoriented from being woken up from your sleep! Around 6 months when we started with formula, I accidentally started to shake the bottle to mix formula and the lid wasn’t on right and it went EVERYWHERE!!!! Being that tired is a disability haha
