It's ok to admit it's hard

It's ok to admit it's hard

hi mama,

You've been in my thoughts recently as last time we spoke you seemed a little disconnected.

It's incredible the amount of work and commitment that comes with two children and adjusting to a second baby has been really hard.

There have been times where you've wished away the baby stage with your second....the exhausting night feeds without the respite of staying in your PJ'S all day. We both know that's not possible with an older one.

Even though you were reassured that the second would be less work and more relaxed it's turned out not to be the case. He's more work, more demanding and at times its all been too much.

It's ok to admit it's hard and the tears are sometimes inevitable but know that you're doing a good job and that is what matters.

Now he's sitting up, he's eating food and he won't stop chatting. You suddenly realise this time is precious and you won't get it back. It's time to stand back and take it in, both the rough and the smooth and to appreciate what you've achieved because Mama...you've got this.

Lots of love
