2015 honestly was the best and most challenging year of my life. The year I grew and birthed another human being, the year I became a mother. Becoming a mother changes something inside you forever – a love so strong and fierce that I never knew existed. You will never love something the way you love your children, from the minute they are placed in your arms, there is nothing but LOVE.
I learnt to see everything as “seasons” and all the hard times will pass, the first three months (the sleepless nights) is possibly the hardest “season” for a lot of new mums I know it was for me, Learning to survive on just 3-4 hours of broken sleep a night. I was lucky to have family around me to help me at this stage to take my son while I showered and slept, having that little break to get some extra sleep clean the house and take a shower helped me to be a better mum, having a happier more patient mum is better for everyone.
