Your WTF moment with motherhood? Where you thought to yourself, I can't believe this, I actually used to be cool.
I think I mainly feel that way when I look at photos of myself before Leo was born. I used to take time to comb my hair, put on makeup and actually get dressed for the day..I’m getting better now that Leo is 6 months old but the first few months of Leo’s life I basically lived in sweats and surrendered to the fact that I would more often than not have spit up in my hair. Forget about makeup...on a good day I may be able to paint on a cat eye if I’m lucky.
And what has blow your mind about motherhood?
My boy is at the age where he’s changing and growing so much week by week...every time he encounters and new milestone like rolling over, eating solid foods, laughing for the first time and crawling (which he’s just now beginning to do) I feel like I’m doing all of these things again for the first time! It’s so sweet to be able to watch him grow in this way. Also, I love getting sneak peeks into his personality...he’s such a spirited and curious little guy already and it’s so neat to see him discover things for the first time.
