"I would say one challenge is learning balance. Accepting that life is different now and you have to give yourself time to find your grove . Be patient as your develop a connection with your baby for some it’s instant and for some, who might not like to admit it, it takes longer ."
When did you become a mother ?
My life changed forever December 20, 2018. We welcomed a beautiful, healthy baby boy into the world, ready to shower him with love .
What are some of the challenges of being a mom ?
I would say one challenge is learning balance. Accepting that life is different now and you have to give yourself time to find your grove . Be patient as your develop a connection with your baby for some it’s instant and for some, who might not like to admit it, it takes longer .
What is the best thing about being a mother ?
The best thing about motherhood is knowing I dreamed of this day , these moments and it’s now a reality. Watching this child I prayed for grow and change every day right before my eyes .. It is truly the best gift life has to offer
What did you learn about yourself after becoming a mother ?
I learned that independent Kim has to be put on HOLD . HELP !!!! Yes i can’t recall how many times I picked up the phone to call my close friends / family about different questions I had / ummmm can you come over Sis ?( love you Maya ) I just need to step out for a few minutes ...
What is something you experienced during pregnancy/ parenting that no one prepared you for ?
WOW ... this might be my favorite question because some folks really shocked the hell out of me during my pregnancy. SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO DAMN CHILL .... I was surprised about how much women compared and almost felt annoyed that I was not throwing up my guts during my pregnancy .... Kim you’re still not vomiting ??? Ummm no , that’s a good thing right ... Kim do you want a c-section? , I had a c-section , you should request a c-section Kim it will hurt to have him natural, Kim you’re so small is your baby underweight?..... MOMS to be watch out for this .Everyone has their own experience good or bad but don’t let them put that on you . Pregnancy is no joke be unapologetic about walking away from any negativity.
If you could offer a piece of advice to other starter kit moms what would you say ? BREATHE,RELAX,PRAY and just imagine holding your sweet baby and when that time comes stare at him or her and say Thank you God .i replay that moment over and over still .
What would you say to other starter moms on how to prepare ?
This is a life changing moment . You deserve a beautiful, STRESS-FREE pregnancy. Invest time and energy in the things that make you feel relaxed ( minus alcohol ) . For some it will be a stressful pregnancy plagued by sickness and for some it will be a walk in the park but it’s still your own beautiful journey to motherhood.
