to the girl who changed my life forever✨ there’s no way a caption could truly measure the way i feel about you but if i has to give it a try, it would a little something like this...
Amelie the day you were born, you were surrounded by so much peace that now filters through you and into the world. i have seen your love and kindness towards others first hand and while i’d like to take all the credit, i know that is naturally who you are. i never imagined at three years old you would be this self aware and while i wish i could keep you small forever, i am even more excited to see the woman you become. thank you for allowing me the honor of being your mom❤️
Ever have one of those days that just SUCK for no particular reason? I like to draw the cute and sweet moments of motherhood, but it is definitely not always like that. Some days are really hard and you find yourself breaking down on the living room floor after you finally get baby to go down to sleep. I am not always cuddling baby and sniffing his sweet baby hair. Some days are like this, where I feel really apathetic or even depressed and I'm not grooving AT ALL on being a mom. It can be really alienating and lonesome being a stay at home mom. I don't have a community to depend on or help me turn my days around. But as I was thinking about how alone I feel in my experiences in motherhood, I realised how wrong I was. Thanks to my little following here on Instagram, I know that there are other moms (and dads!) living the exact same things as I am. So I decided to get a little vulnerable and open up a little in order to share this aspect of motherhood. The one that isn't always perfect with sunshine and cute, chubby babies. Some days just DONT WORK. There are just going to be those days where nothing seems to work out, and you don't get anything done on your to-do list, and baby always finds a reason to cry no matter what you do, and you want to pull out your hair and chug a bottle of wine... and that's ok. Those days pass, and you can look forward to a new day where everything is just perfect and everything works according to plan and the weather is awesome and you're feeling fine. But on those shit days, allow yourself a break. Don't change out of your PJS. Don't do your chores. Skip the shower. Turn the TV on all day. Do whatever you need to make it easier. And remember that you're not alone. ❤️
