Honestly, I had no clue how difficult this would be. Why didn’t anyone tell me? Although even if they had, I probably would have been arrogant enough not to believe them.
Honestly, most days I feel like a failure.
Honestly, having the job that I do doesn’t make this any easier; it makes this harder because I wonder why I can’t figure out my own baby.
Honestly, I feel like I will never sleep again.
Honestly, I now hate driving because I can’t do anything for her when she cries.
Honestly, I frequently wish that someone else could breastfeed for me.
Honestly, I miss dairy products so much.
Honestly, I am terrified of screwing up.
Honestly, I have never been so tired or emotional. I feel like I could come unglued.
Honestly, I wonder what’s wrong with me or if there’s something wrong with her when she won’t nap.
Honestly, I don’t know if I can do this.
Honestly, I think people should talk about how difficult the newborn period is so that new moms know that they’re not alone. Or crazy.
