Wow can you believe it’s the 33rd week of the Mommy Mondays Hop already!?
When I started this hop back in January I realized I was having kind of a hard time with being a mom. I was struggling and I didn’t really have anyone to talk much with about it. I’m not sure if I had PPD or not exactly, but something close to that. I had a really hard time feeling connecting to be a mom and I wasn’t feeling like I was doing my best or really exactly what that meant. I wanted to write about it on my blog but I was scared to share, I didn’t even really want to talk to my family about it, apart from my husband, even though I know a lot of people go through many different feelings during their first months of parenthood! I have never been a person to suffer from depression or really even understand the real true side of it, so when I started having those kinds of feelings I didn’t know how to deal too well and I internalized a lot.
Fast forward to now, and I am past those times! Not to say there aren’t “hard” moments, but I certainly don’t have those depressive types of feelings about being a mom any more! And I think it really does help to share your thoughts and have different people to talk to about them!
So, what I mean to say is that I started this hop as a way to connect, to share and to support. I hope to share with other moms and support each other though any various challenges we may face as parents. From the start I wanted to keep it open, you can post about whatever you want about being a mom, good and bad, ups and downs, you life with your kids, your family or even just some pictures you want to share. Sometimes we have theme days for fun, but you can still post about any topic those days if you want! (although we hope you’ll want to participate!).
Thanks to everyone who’s been linking up with us these past 33 weeks and I hope you’ll continue to link up and share! We’re all in this together to let’s connect and support each other the best we can!
We hope you’ll link up with us this week with your post about mommyhood!
