Once upon a time, Barbie and Ken met. Then came the white horse and the white pickett fence and a little one on the way.
After the pink cloud lifts, and your baby arrives… are you feeling blue? Reality can be a wake up call. Keeping up with endless responsibilities can cause any parent to go insane. After this turning point, ask yourself how are you feeling? What do I need?
I know for me, it takes a lot to feel okay. I’ve recently made a list of things I must do to keep me feeling like me. On my list, there is no room for negotiation.
Skipping dance class is not an option for me. No matter what, I must dance. I need to relax in a hot bath, steam or massage. (Okay, massage is a bonus.)
My advice to new moms is, commit to one thing that you do just for you. No matter what, don’t compromise. It’s your time! You’ve just scheduled YOU! So stick to it.
