These past couple of days I have felt a little defeated. I’m really struggling to swallow my pride and receive help from others. I don’t know why, but I have had this sudden independent personality lately, like when someone offers to help me with something I quickly respond “It’s okay, I got it!” When in reality, I’m legitimately struggling. Ha! And even more so when it comes to people wanting to help with Lucy, like asking someone to babysit is my worst nightmare. Why!? Is it because I feel like I need to prove something? Like “I’m a good mother, I can handle my baby and take care of everything else”? WHAT IS MY DEAL. I’m still trying to get a grip of this whole Mom thing and what I’m learning is that I need to set my pride aside. It’s okay to receive and ask for help… It doesn’t make me any less of a mother.

    I'm a first time mom too, so I know exactly where you are coming from. I personally just need to stop worrying about what others think of me, and do what is best for me and my family 🙂

    I hear ya. My little guy is 10 months old and I'm feeling very defeated lately. Mostly cause he still won't sleep through the night and nothing is working. It's exhausting. But anywho…. We're all in there with ya on this one!
