Confessions of a Muddled Mom : Theme Reveal.

Your little human has managed to turn it 360 degrees and a quarter. I know mine did.

I feel like I have known him for ages. I know what he is gonna do the next second. I know what he feels and what he is trying to say.
But it wasn’t always like this always.

A few months ago I was clueless. I didn’t even know how to hold him. He was so tiny and pink and fragile. This was the first time he held my hand and I burst into happy tears and got my husband to click it.

At that time it felt like a desperate plea from him to hold on. I held. We both survived.


Dear New Mommy, right now everything might seem clueless, you might even hate the parenting demands a little.

Understand that it’s okay to be overwhelmed with all this. It’s okay to falter. It’s okay to cry a little. It’s okay to feel tired and helpless. It’s even okay to hand over the baby to someone else for some rest. You will get there. You will learn. Your baby will learn. It gets better, trust me. It gets really good.


I wasn’t one of those mothers who naturally parented. I made mistakes and learnt and made some more mistakes.

It is okay.

Don’t beat yourself. The world might mock you but you are a mom now. Grow a thick skin.


You are the best mother your baby can have. Never stop trying though. For those little fingers that wrap around you. They trust you. They know you are the best. Never give up. Each day will bring in new lesson. Let’s learn together. ❤️

I am going to be writing a series of blogposts that I hope makes this first two years of parenting more manageable. Easy? Oh no ! It is never going to be easy 😁

This post is written as a part of Blogchatter’s AToZ challenge.

  3. Being a new parent comes with a lot of mixed feelings. All of a sudden your focus shifts on this little one. You are no longer the center of your own world. But the level of joy it brings cant be explained in words.

  7. You’re absolutely right. Even with a sea of information available around parenting, all mothers know what’s best for their child. More power to mothers who chart their own territory without falling for the stereotypes.
