You won’t sleep. You will only eat cold cereal. You will lose your sense of self, and never fit in to your favorite pair of jeans again. People will tell you what to do, how to do it, and when to start it. They will tell you you’re doing it all wrong.
You will cry, you will laugh. But you want to know what? You will emerge successful. You will be forever changed, and you will be better off because of it.
On the impending eve of Mother’s Day, 20 seasoned and beautiful moms (moms who have traveled the rocky road through motherhood), share their most encouraging words of wisdom that they would give a first time mom of a newborn.
If this is your first Mothers Day, congrats! And remember, there are very few mistakes that can’t be fix, you will sleep through the night again soon, and you’re doing an amazing job. Regardless of what your mother-in-law tells you.
