I Want My Mommy

I am in tears. My mom just left for the airport to go home. She has been here since two days before the baby was born. I don't think I can do this by myself. I have never wished I lived close to family more than I do now. I feel like I am all alone in this and terrified.

You CAN do this! You are the very best person on earth to take care of your baby. It will be harder without your mom to take care of some things for you but you can do it!

Thanks, Annika. There is a glimmer of the rational person that I once was that knows that everything will be ok but in this overtired haze I have my doubts.

Oh shit. Ok. It is going to be ok. My friend Carole says she was never happier than when her mother finally left after the baby was born. Your Mom is great though, that is why.

I totally understand how terrifying this can feel. I also understand how emotional this is making you (that and the crazy postpartum hormones)! I know that you can care for your baby without your mom there to help you, and I know that you are good mother.
