I stumbled upon this letter written by another mommy blogger and it connected with me so much that I just had to share it with you too! This momma has received hundreds of comments and re-posts on her letter, mostly positive but some not so much.
It’s not that we’re letting ourselves go as much as it’s putting our little ones first. That’s how it should be (opinion of one here.) When you become a mom your world changes. You don’t sleep until the little ones are read to, tucked in, bottles washed, house picked up, lunches packed and clothes hung out for the next day. That is what we signed up for when we decided to become moms. I can personally say that I don’t put make-up on every day like I used to, I haven’t worn heels in two years and I often rush out of the house with wet, un-styled hair and that is completely fine with me. Our time on this planet is precious and I would rather “lose myself for a decade” by soaking up as much time as I can with my two precious kiddos. So well said Catherine!
