MUM GUILT CLEANSE

I know it's been a while since I wrote my last blog post, I'll admit I have been finding it quite hard to get into the zone. I've been feeling like an absolute slack-ass as of late, it must be those transitioning and adjusting feels through these different stages that having a child offers but why is it that all I have been feeling lately is guilt, guilt guilt?!

Guilty for not blogging enough, guilty for feeling like I am not giving Willow enough attention, feeling guilty for not being more present with my hubby, feeling guilty for not training enough, feeling guilty for not being more productive and proactive with my career, guilty for not seeing family and friends enough.

Last week I was in tears, I spoke to the hubby about all of these overwhelming feelings and he put things into perspective and asked me this...

Please don't take offense to anything that I have to say as that is not my intention, I am merely speaking from my own experience.

PRE-BABY FEELS

So last past week I have been having babymares! Those sleepless nights where all of the typical hormonal emotions come over you... that damn stupid F word "fear" And then the questioning starts to hit... "Am I going to be a good mother?"

I think it hasn't really hit me till now that wow... I am actually going to be a Mama! I am going to be responsible for another wee humans little life for the rest of my life. I started going through a series of questions in my head like, what kind of mother am I going to be?... More importantly what kind of mother do I want to be?
