Vinnie turned 5 over the weekend. How did that even happen?
I remember so many days in Newbornland when I thought I wouldn’t make it until 5pm and now I’ve made it 5 YEARS?!
The truth is I don’t know. Because motherhood is magic and you don’t know most of the things you need to know until the exact moment you need to know them. So, I don’t know much of anything… Yet…
What I do know is that motherhood has surprised me a million times over. Some of the things I thought would be awesome have not been that awesome (hello, natural childbirth and nursing.) And the things I didn’t even know to keep an eye out for have been nothing short of magical and mystical and just beyond words.
Basically, motherhood is an anomaly.
It’s weird and unpredictable and inconsistent and abnormal. But it’s also THE. BEST.
It’s hard and frustrating and exhausting and infuriating. But it gives me more energy and enthusiasm than ANYTHING.
It makes me laugh and cry and scream and melt EVERY. DAMN. DAY.
Listen in to hear my 5 biggest surprises in motherhood so far. Warning: be prepared to laugh (at me or with me, your call.)
