The truth is I have anxiety. . + a child.
I realized and finally came to terms with it a few years ago. But truthfully, no one tells you how much more intense your anxiety gets when you have a baby! Seriously! I thought I was nuts then, try me now. I’m a first time mom to the sweetest little boy, Tatum. He is currently 8 months and will be 9 in just a few short weeks (oh my goodness!).
He goes to sleep, I worry. He eats, I worry. He plays, I worry. God for bid he leave my sight. Sometimes I think ” that’s it sign me up for the loony bin I’ve gone crazy!”. But what else should I be feeling? He’s my child, I’m his mother and god chose me to protect him. If you’re a new mom and you’ve experienced the same feelings just know that you are not alone. I’m right there with you girlfriend! I’d like to think it will get easier but let’s just be honest.. we can kiss that dream goodbye!
Hang in there mamas! The best we can do is hug our babies a little tighter, give them a few extra kisses and pray we’re strong enough not to go cry in the closet when he gets his first booboo.
