My very good friend and yoga girl had her beautiful daughter Myah about a month ago. I was over for some cake and cuddles the other day and got to take a peek into her life as a new mother.
Oh. Hell. Cry poop change eat poop wash burp repeat. Cry cry cry cry. Etc. "sometimes I look in the mirror while pumping my milk at 4am and wonder wtf"
Take that in for a second ladies. When is the last time you woke up at 4am for someone?
The physical and mental toll of raising a child is beyond imaginable for most of us childless women. A lot of women in Dubai are here without the support of their mothers and family members to help them through the rough nights. My respect for these women are at a record high right now. Nannies and Grannies are luxuries that not everyone can afford but yet everyone in dubai makes it seem like a necessity. Hell, I know a woman with 3 boys and 4 maids...Y'all need to re-evaluate! Unless you were raised like this and have a perfectly healthy relationship with your mother.... Why?
So here's a huge shout out to all the mommas out there who sacrifice everything and more for their little Mayas. Love you all. xo
