My Mommy Pet Peeve...

is when people say that it was love at first sight or it came so naturally. For me it did not.... Not every mom feels like this right away!

It took me a few weeks to a month to even feel close to what I think some people experience with the birth of their child. My birth story is anything but typical. In short... I was induced for 48 hours, it did not work, my child was ripped from my body, and then sent to the NICU where she lived without me for 16 days.

That is all...

  1. I think it's brave of you to admit this! I think that many women might feel the same way, but be too ashamed to admit it because there's this idea that a "good mother" falls in love with her child immediately.
