This Is Hope For The Weary New Mom

This Is Hope For The Weary New Mom

I want you to know that I see you.

 

Holding your babe, looking into their beautiful eyes. Noting their cheeks. Letting their pudgy fingers hold — tightly — onto yours.

 

I see you.

 

You cringe.

 

Just for a split-second.

 

Not because you're judging.

 

And not because your own notifications aren't dinging away in your back pocket.

 

They definitely are.

 

But because this is the world we live in now.

 

This is the world that your baby lives in now.

 

A world where people are waaayyyy more likely to be looking into their phone screens than each other's — or their children's — eyes.

 

This what I know to be true about that, and about you.


Right inside this letter that I wrote for you.

I lay each of these out for you right inside this blog post.
