Here I am looking tired and here is the reason why I’m tired.
If I’m home, I’m in this hoodie and yoga pants. No exceptions. Dark circles, tired skin, bloodshot eyes. I had a baby, guys. And the longest she sleeps is five hours. I’ve not had more than five continuous hours of sleep in five months. So I just want to be ultra comfortable. Not in a oh-let-me-pull-out-this-silk-romper-#sexylaugh way, but in a ALL COTTON EVERYTHING way. This hoodie was a gift from my sister, which she found at Aerie. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is like, the perfect hoodie. Light, super soft, tad loose, warm but not warm. It’s like my little blanket. Oh god, it’s the woman equivalent of a baby blanket.
So I know I haven’t posted and I feel bad. I’m like, must… blog… have… no… energy… zzzzzz. I’m not sure how many people reading this have had or have babies, but I look back on some old posts and just laugh. “Hey guys, you totally need a tutu.” Right now I would trade a dinner party and tutu for pajamas, some sushi, and a long nap. OMG that is terrible, right? Have I lost my fashion identity? Moms, please chime in! Non-moms you have my permission to judge me I guess. Don’t get it twisted; I can still work it out if I have a babysitter, some Visine, and a great dress. But let’s just stay in and snuggle with the baby while watching the Beyonce HBO special for the tenth time? I might regret this post.
this post is filled with perfection.
We moms feel your pain. It gets easier when they start sleeping through the night, and then it gets harder when they decide they need to wake you up at 6:30am on your days off and then not nap til 4pm. Yes, you will be about that zombie life for a while. Btw, your baby girl is an angel.
It gets way easier as far as the physical exhaustion is concerned but my daughter is 5 and way past the waking up in the middle of the night part. But I do remember how hard it was. The mental exhaustion however, does not go away, it remains and festers as your baby gets older BUT… your little one will be more interactive soon and eventually she’ll be into things that’ll leave you a little extra time to take care of personal stuff. You’ll be back to your semi old self in no time. And you look BEAUTIFUL in your hoodie and comfy clothes! This may sound silly to most but while baby girl is napping and you’re up, get cute, even if you’re not going anywhere. Helps boost ya up a bit :) Best of luck doll, your daughter is so precious <3
