I shared this post on our Facebook page the other day. The post is entitled, “To Wives: Before You Were ‘Mommy'”. It’s a really sweet read encouraging moms to remember their first true love and I really did enjoy it, I have nothing negative to say about it. It’s full of wisdom and care and she speaks the gospel truth, it’s a great post.
But over the past few days I haven’t been able to shake something about it that doesn’t sit well with me. I couldn’t quite pin point what until now.
I’m never NOT going to be mommy. For the rest of my life, I will be mommy. That means my husband and I are going to have to learn to adjust to our new normal. We can’t go back to pre-baby life. We can’t go back to the years of dating. But we can make this season as wonderful as those prior. How do we do that?
