My baby was laughing at someone else pooping…
Yeah I had an embarrassing mom moment. Last week I went to pick my husband up from work (I jacked his car for the day because mine is out of commission currently) and I had to feed my baby.
He was closing up his shop and there was like nobody accept three others on the building so I went to the restroom and proceeded to breastfeed. 5 minutes goes by and someone walks into the stall next to mine.(The kind of stalls you can’t see under)
I don’t think she knew we were in there but she proceeded to do her business and with comical sounds made all the flatulent and “plop” sounds.
I stayed quiet…my baby did not!!!!!
My baby then unlatched and started laughing from hearing the sounds and started hitting the toilet paper holder so it was now known that the other lady was not alone.
I really hope she didn’t see my house shoes on the way past her stall because I couldn’t wait to scoop up my baby and evacuate the premises.
Being a stay at home mom is great but there are so many things that you don’t know or realize that you’ll be going through.
When I became a stay at home mom I thought that it would give me more freedom to do as I please whenever I felt like it. Now don’t get me wrong there are so many great benefits of being home with the baby. I get to raise my child the way I want to not a nanny, grandparent, or daycare person raising my baby. We also don’t have to pay for daycare because I’m at home watching the baby. I have to say that the best part of being at home with the baby is that I am always here for each one of her milestones. I am truly blessed that I don’t have to work right now and that my husband can cover all the bills.
But there are also cons that go with this full time commitment. That’s that crazy part is that when you start being a stay at home mom, most people don’t realize it’s not all fun and games. You still can’t do what you want when you want to. Everything is focused on the baby even when you personally need to eat, use the bathroom, or even do laundry you can’t just get up and do it with a baby that depends on you for everything.
I found out the hard way that financially I have to depend on my husband because my job is being a mom and that doesn’t pay in money and 401k. To me it was pretty hard to give up my financial contribution and freedom. I can’t just get up and go anywhere I want to either because I have a baby. which means I have to figure out how to get me and her ready, pack everything in the car, and take myself, her, and her accessories in and out of the car every time I want to pop into a store.
Not to mention it is so easy to forget what day of which month it is. It is so easy to get cabin fever or depression from just being in a house staring at four walls with a tiny human that yells at you for everything.
But as time goes on you cope and get used to having a routine. Life becomes easier. Finding ways to take care of yourself and the baby becomes easier too. Life eventually works itself out for you.
By no means do I want to offend anyone’s religion, ” A mother is the name for god on the lips and hearts of all children.”(-William Makepeace Thackery) this hits home for me on a personal level and I watch other mothers and what this may mean to them.
From the start of a child’s life they do not know of religion or a “GOD” but they do know their mother. You see babies cannot really see when they are born so the first connection that they make is normally with their mothers. They know their mommy’s by smell, heartbeat, feel, sound, and skin to skin contact. They feed from their mother. As they grow into children most kids are most comfortable with their mom, this is why a lot of kids act unruly around their mothers because they are that comfortable to be their full selves.
The quote ” A mother is the name for god on the lips and hearts of all children.”(-William Makepeace Thackery) hits home for me because as my baby grows I realize she makes new connections and relationships with others, but the bond between me and her is thicker than blood. As a newborn and even in the womb I realized I am my child’s lifeline. She is now almost five months old and she looks to me for comfort. She calls to me for anything she needs.
Time will pass and all babies will grow to be independent from their mothers, but that will not change the instinct that mother was there from the beginning. That bond is a lifetime contract between mother and child that can never be broken.
