I’ve been trying to come out of my blogging cave, to try and share where I am.

Earlier this week I realized I feel sorry for those expecting or with a new baby.

Now don’t get me wrong, I adore my kids and I am very thankful I had each one.  But I feel sorry for the new mamas and daddys who don’t know how hard the road ahead of them can be.

The sleepless nights.

The crying.

The learning curve.

The baby blues.

The potential for postpartum depression and anxiety.

Watching them growing up.

Feeling sorry to see one phase end and another begin.

I truly do feel sorry.

That’s my confession.

But maybe it’s the depression talking.

  1. I’m the opposite.
    I’d take all of it if I could have just one more child.
    I get depressed and very jealous when I find out someone I know is pregnant. I am happy for them, but at the same time, I wish that I were them.

  2. Very honest and real. I like it. Before you have a child, you just have NO clue. I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but man, the worry, the heartache…..

  3. Charity, I was the same way. In fact I inadvertently scared a friend when I was in the midst of my PPD. I talked about how hard it was. It is so worth it, but it is so exhausting and so hard. I think we need to paint a more honest and accurate portrait of parenting.

  4. Thing is I don’t regret a moment going down that road 3 times and didn’t find it really hard when they were tiny, but now… that’s why I think a lot of it is the depression talking for me.
