Mommy Time

It's 7:07 a.m. on a Monday morning and for the first time postpartum, I have been able to take an uninterrupted shower. I was not able to sleep after my baby girl's 4:45 feeding and I decided to go ahead and take a moment to shower. It felt good to have a moment to myself without feeling guilty or anxious about my baby girl crying or whining. My experience this morning helped me realize that per haps my husband is right about me needing to take a moment to myself. I am still adjusting to being a new mom and I haven't learned to juggle my responsibilities just yet. Plus I find it extremely difficult to not hold her and stare at her while she sleeps. I now realize that  it is very important for me to take the moments to myself, and that I shouldn't feel so guilty about needing a moment. I have been so consumed with the idea of trying to be the perfect mom & wife, I forgot that I am only human and that there is no such thing as perfection.

My experience this morning, though it may be a small task, felt really rewarding and refreshing!
