Motherhood tastes a little bittersweet. I slept 4 hours total within 2 days. . . Every part of my body hurts. . . My 27 year old body feels 47. . .
. . . but as I stood in front of my bathroom mirror, naked, blow drying my csection incision tape, milk leaking from engorged breast, discovering new stretch marks on a body thats running out of room, I could not help but feel like the richest woman alive. Four healthy sons. . . A house filled with endless laughs. . . Love that flows like a constant stream. . .
I realized there is so much more sweet than bitter. I rarely think about how tired I am but I always think about how blessed I am. There is 7 days in a week and maybe 1 day a week is really really hard. Sometimes I cry in the closet but I often laugh & dance & play.
Motherhood is a beautiful mess. The days are long but these years are so short. The bitter is so mild but on lazy Saturdays like this I am reminded, the sweet is so rich.
I absolutely love spending my lazy days in this robe from Pink Blush.
Pink Blush has been a go to for me with all things maternity clothing & Postpartum. Link to my favorite robe here .
