Sitting here over due with Baby #3, I can’t help but look back at this pregnancy and realize how many times I’d wished for my mom. This pregnancy has been way more mental than physical and while some of that has to do with the two little loves I have running around but also because I know that she is the one person who could truly relate. An experienced mom of three.
Entering into uncharted territory is always easier when someone you love and trust has paved a path. I can’t even begin to tell you how many days I’ve laid in bed a little longer while Joel got up with the kids or ducked away to my bed to just lay and cry, because I know if anyone could make me feel better in that moment it was her.
And those moments have put into perspective the hard days when the only word out of my kids mouth is “mom, mommy” on constant repeat…I remind myself that I would call for my mom if I could.
