Anxiety, bébé, Zelda

Half Way between Four and Five Months

I’ve always been a nervous person.  Having a baby feels like my anxiety has been turned up to 11.  The lack of sleep sure doesn’t help.  Being over 500 miles away from family that loves us doesn’t help.  The heat outside while living in a third floor apartment with no air conditioning doesn’t help.  The raging wild fire that is making ash rain from the sky really doesn’t help.

Things that do help…

  • Admitting I need help
  • Seeing a therapist
  • Having a husband that makes me dinner every night
  • Having a friend who will come take care of your baby when you are sick
  • Going to mom’s group
  • Texting my Mother-in-law all the time
  • Kitties

Kitties beware we have a rolling grabbing bebe on the loose.

Being a mom is so much more than I ever expected.
