Stripped Back And Rebuilt From The Bottom Up

My lovely friend and MAMA contributor Josie has a great feature over at her blog, Oh You Pretty Things, called ‘Mothers on Motherhood’. Each week she brings a different mum’s perspective of Motherhood; there’s not much I find more inspiring than hearing other women’s experiences of pregnancy, birth and beyond and this is no different. It’s interesting and heartwarming

This week is Rachel of The Little Pip gives her take, and I wanted to share because I felt what she said was so hauntingly beautiful and on-the-nose.

The days are long but the years are short someone once told me. That about sums up my experience so far. 

I didn’t expect to come face to face with my selfishness, my laziness and my lack of patience so brutally or abruptly. I didn’t expect that my self confidence would wither or that I would battle so much just getting through the day. I didn’t realise that such a small creature could expose me the way Pip has…
 
I thought I could just go on being me. Me with a baby. Turned out, I had to be stripped back and rebuilt from the bottom up.
