There are some things that make you realize, “Yep, I am definitely a mom now!” My first mom moment was probably when washing dishes felt like a break.
Then there is the daunting task of learning to take baby out solo. One mom told me that after she did her first outing she felt like Wonder Woman and that she could do just about anything. Another mom told me that after her first outing she realized how much fun it was because everybody adored baby and said nice things.
Of course there’s lots to say about the good old sleep deprivation that comes with parenting. Nobody could prepare me for what taking care of a newborn would entail, especially when it came to sleep. In the first week sleeping four hours a day was the norm, thankfully that has slowly increased.
What was one of your “Mom moments?”
