As a new mom I struggle with a lot of thoughts during the day. I know with changing every diaper, washing poop out of every onsie, hours spent on the couch feeding my princess, singing, storybook reading, and cuddling is well spent. BUT I also struggle with thoughts.
I struggle with the clean laundry still sitting in the living room for the 3rd day in a row. I struggle with the dirty dishes in the sink, the numerous amounts of shoes I keep stubbing my toes on throughout the house, and the fact I haven't washed my hair in 2 days.
When Brandon tells me he is headed home I get busy.. Trying to entertain while unloading the dishwasher, straightening the couch cushions, and throwing away the pile of diapers that have collected on the floor throughout the day.
I don't want Brandon to think that I sat on the couch all day napping with my baby girl (even though some days I do just that). I know that pouring love onto Alivia is what I need to do right now. I know that I am accomplishing a lot when I do get that shower. I know that my day is full of love and fun, but I my thoughts take over, and I feel useless some days.
I am a new mom that will not let those thoughts control me. I will keep loving, keep changing diapers, keep singing, keep being a mom. Dirty hair and all.
Think positive thoughts today.
