Embrace the Ugly

Embrace the Ugly

Hey new mamas! I want to encourage you to do something today. I want you to EMBRACE THE UGLY. Here's why: It's so easy to measure our success {and sanity} as a new mom when all we see on social media are snapshots of happy babies with smiling mamas in really well lit rooms. All of us know there are days that are just plain U-G-L-Y and no amount of editing software can fix it! I'm talking about the days of endless outfit changes due to spit-up, throw up, and blow outs. The days of crying more than your baby because all you want is a nap and shower that are both six days overdue. The days plagued by growth spurts, leaps, hops, colic, gas and sleep regressions. I could go on but you KNOW the days I'm talking about.

Of course there are beautiful and perfect moments. That is usually when we snap a picture and share with the world. But if today you're having an ugly day, just know you have permission to share that as well. It might be the reminder someone needs to hear that they aren't alone in this journey of new motherhood and that all of us have ugly days, too.
