Be Social, A Little Emotional

After having Bam Bam, I thought that I had it all figured out. That motherhood would be a piece a cake, after all I wanted this, right?! Wrong! Couples fail to realize that with becoming parents you lose a lot of yourself, especially after having more than one child. You have to enter in a realm of “self-discovery” after transitioning into parenthood. So here are a few tips that worked for me, after having Pebbles:

SOCIAL 

  1. Write thank you notes to the nursing staff or to family members that have helped you with the adjustment.
  2. Check in on social media, update your status, or maybe upload pictures of your new addition. OR even find images of quotes that fit how you are feeling.
  3. Writer a letter to your new addition, your spouse or if you have other children
  4. Suggest a gathering, maybe a “sip and see” for your little one, this may occupy your mind and give you something to look forward to.

EMOTIONAL

  1. Write a sweet note to yourself on a post-it in a place that only you can find.
  2. Create a positive affirmation that you can say to yourself in the mirror.
  3. Call a friend that might have children around the same age
  4. Be creative, color a picture, or some type of art to express emotion.

So, take some time to check off a few of these, you might just a feel a little better about yourself….I did 🙂
