Juggling Life as a New Mom
I am a new mom navigating the jungle of first toothy grins, endless diapers, sleepless nights, and all those delightful "firsts." It is a joy and a whirlwind to experience all of this, and I cannot wait for you to join this journey with me.
However, there is more to the mix! Like every mama, I have a life outside of parenting. It didn't end when I gave birth; I don't want it to. In addition to being a proud new mama, I'm also:
A proud wife to my military hubby,
An IT professional wrapping up my Master's program, and
A woman on a mission to carve out her "me time."
Finding the time to work toward my goals while raising a new child is a challenge and opportunity. But many new moms feel they must give everything up to be the best moms they can be. In other cases, new mons can spread too thin by taking on too much at once.
Life is a juggling act, and keeping everything together is more than I can sometimes handle. I know I'm not alone in that feeling. But it's important for our well-being and our children that we find a way to balance it all. As new moms, we need to understand that we still deserve our time to follow our lives and passions outside of being a mother.
Here at "Mama + Mini Me," we will dive into the chaos and the joy of juggling our lives! By sharing our experiences and motherhood tips with each other, we hope to make being a new mother a little easier so we can all fully enjoy everything this special time offers.
The Realities of Being a New Mom
Being a new mama means every day is new and full of surprises. But it also means there are many challenges you'll face that you're just not expecting. This can shock many new moms, who might not have any way to prepare for how life-changing a new child is.
With "Mama + Mini Me," we hope to give moms a community that can help them better cope with the realities of motherhood. There are countless joys of motherhood, but there are some real struggles we all go through. By sharing the ups, downs, the good, and the bad, we can better appreciate each day.
Eight months into being a mama, I find myself swept in the whirlwind of my little man's 8-month sleep regression, seasoned with a runny nose and a hint of fever. Nevertheless, let me tell you - as much as I researched, prepped, and planned for motherhood, nothing could have prepared me for the reality of it all.
Despite countless hours spent pouring over parenting books, forums, and websites, when my little one arrived, it felt like I was learning a whole new language without a dictionary. However, these authentic, raw moments make the journey so beautifully unique.
With "Mama + Mini Me," we'll community to share our experiences as new mothers and get the tips, pointers, or just that shoulder to laugh-cry on when we need it.
Our Mission at Mama + Mini
It is time for us mothers to talk more openly about our experiences with motherhood. We need to do more than share just the glossy, Instagram-perfect snapshots. Being a mom also means embracing motherhood's messy, emotional, and even challenging parts.
Many new moms struggle because they don't know just how hard parenting is from the curated snapshots of other moms' lives. That can lead them to be too hard on themselves and missing out on the best parts of this incredible experience. They might also feel like they have t sacrifice every other part of their lives to be a "good mom."
At "Mama + Mi," we hope to shine a light on what being a mom means. A shift is happening – more and more moms are opening up, branching out, and sharing the truth of their experiences as new moms. In doing so, they get to enjoy healthy relationships with themselves, their children, and their families. I could not be more thrilled to be a part of this movement.
Here is to the joy, the tears, the trials, and the triumphs of motherhood. Let us keep it real together in our open and welcoming new mom group. Welcome to "Mama + Mini Me"!
