Mom life is the best life

Becoming a mom is a little bit like starting a new career. You have all these high hopes that it will add fulfillment to your life, but there is so much uncertainty and fear.

What if you are a bad parent? What if your baby cries all the time? How will you manage to pay all the bills yet be present to raise your kids?

Maybe I am just announcing my fears to you out loud. Hi, it’s very nice to meet you by the way!

I don’t want to sugarcoat motherhood. It definitely comes with its challenges. I can assure you however, these challenges will be MASSIVELY overshadowed by the joy motherhood will bring.
