Since becoming a Mom, I can’t remember my life before having my beautiful girl. Quite honestly, I don’t want to. It feels like she’s been with me forever and that she was meant to choose me as her Mama. I am completely consumed by Motherhood in the best way possible and devote all my energy towards my tiny human. That being said, when a Mother falls deeply in love with her children, it is very easy to forget that you yourself exist or have needs. There are times when I feel the exhaustion and never-ending cycle that is caregiving, but to be honest, I rarely crave time away from my little one. I find it overwhelming to plan time away for myself, but I know in my head that I do need the reset button every so often and that Delilah will grow by spending quality time with her Dad and Grandparents when I’m not around. So.. I force it.
