Sorry to all the moms.
I remember when moms would tell me breastfeeding was hard and I thought, how hard could it be?
When my mom friends would show up late to something and my reaction was to think, shouldn’t the baby be on some sort of schedule by now?
When stay-at-home moms would say it’s the “hardest job” and I would (internally) roll my eyes.
When I said I would take four weeks of maternity leave (lol).
When moms warned me that I wouldn’t realize how much free time I used to have on my hands until I had a baby. And I didn’t believe them.
When someone would say “C-section recovery is no joke” and I would think “it can’t be that bad”
When I heard that you won’t always connect with your newborn right away and wondered, how could that even be possible?
When others said it would add new challenges to your relationship with your spouse and I brushed it off.
When my mom friends didn’t text me back and I got frustrated.
When I didn’t check in with them nearly enough (or at all).
Sorry to all the moms. I get it now.
