Being a parent is never easy, I don’t care what anyone says. It takes a lot of hard work, time and $ but it’s all worth it. I became a mom at the age of 36 and I am now 38. It was a time in my life where I felt I was ready. I had done me, I traveled and had a great career so it was time. I was married to the man I love and we had bought our house and you know…it was picture perfect. So for us it couldn’t have not been a better time to have a child. My pregnancy was perfect, an absolute joy and and at the time I thought having a baby is easy peazy but off course I know now it is not. Don’t get me wrong, my baby is the best thing I have ever accomplished and she is absolutely breathtaking and I fall in love with her more and more every day. But parenting is so much more than just loving your child. My labor was easy, 💯% natural so no drugs at all, 11 hours of pushing and dancing …yes dancing ( don’t hate me, I know I was one of the lucky ones to have a labor like that) until my baby was out and on my chest which then followed with joyful tears, having her in my arms. But parenting is not easy, since the moment she was born she is and will always be my priority. You want what’s best for your child, at all times. Being a mommy isn’t the only thing on your plate, not if you are married and have a job, not if you want to set a good example to your child and not if you want to feel you are doing your absolute best at all times. You have to be the best at it all. Naturally you prioritize but if you are anything like me…well then you want to be the best at all your jobs. Because let’s face it, it is all a part of what you do. My mom always says, life was so much easier back then…I can’t help to wonder if she is right? Women have a lot of pressure today. Yes we do have more rights but we also have more responsibilities, a lot more than most men I know. Yes I know…there are men that have just as much and sometimes more responsibilities but that is not the norm. And that is not a topic I want to write about because I am not a man so I don’t know what they truly go through on a daily basis, I can only write from my experiences and feelings so let’s drop that topic. 🍑 If you’re a mom and feel overwhelmed know that you’re not alone. I feel overwhelmed and half the time I have no clue if what I’m doing is they way you’re supposed to do things. I go with my gut and that’s it. So if you want to read about YOU put into words on a blog on the Internet then welcome to my page. I will write about my life here, which most likely is your life in one way or another and for me this is a way to deal with whatever comes my way. So hi 👋 I’m Aru.
