How I Survived My First Year As A Mom via ashanimfuko.com

Becoming a mom was the most exciting and scariest experience of my life! Here’s how I got through this crazy first year of motherhood!

Awe, Shock, Fear, Excitement, Overwhelm, Craziness, Sleep-Deprivation, Identity-Crisis, Unconditional Love, Maturity, Selflessness, Protector, Clarity, Confusion, Discernment, Unspeakable Joy, Happiness, Evolution, Transformation, Revelation…

These are the words that come to mind when I think about my first year as a mommy!

I can’t even believe that my daughter is one-year old today!! It still feels weird to say, “my daughter”. I never pictured myself as a mom, but here I am. This year has gone by so fast! It feels like just yesterday, I was in the hospital being prepped for my c-section. Now here I am, a year later, and….I SURVIVED MY FIRST YEAR! Woo Hoo!!

What has this year been like? Well, those words that I listed above pretty much sum it up. In case you were wondering, yes, you read the words clarity and confusion correctly.

But if you are, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. From the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to sleep, your complete focus and attention is on your child (or children). This is especially true in the early days, when they’re a baby or toddler, and they’re at home with you all day long.

Today I’m sharing my story, as a work at home mom. It’s been filled with lots of ups and downs, but overall, it has been a truly incredible experience!
