Life with Baby

by - Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Sometimes I wonder how mothers do it all. I remember the first couple of times that I went out with Ryan-Kate, which was, of course, Target. It seemed back then that getting out of the house was our biggest goal. I didn't want to be the person who didn't have a life just because a baby came along. My biggest fear was that she was going to need something and I wasn't going to have it. 
A diaper.
A Bottle.
A burp cloth. 
It all seemed so overwhelming then. 
I now know to have more grace on myself. My attention is split and my capacity is no longer that of a single person. Which, on a side note, if you are not married and have no kids- don't waste your time just doing nothing. I am so envious of your time! Seek out your dreams, travel, explore new places, just live. And that't not to say that I'm not enjoying my life now, but it is different. 
All that to say: be present, wherever you are. It is so easy to wish you were in a different season or on to the next thing. However, if you are constantly wishing for the "next step" you will miss on the wonderful opportunities that are happening right now!
