Worry

I worry. A lot.

About everything.

I've always been a very paranoid person... but since becoming a mommy, it's gotten a little out of hand. I worry about everything.  


  • Is she getting enough to eat?
  • Does she get enough sleep?
  • Why won't she nap? What am I doing wrong? 
  • Is she still breathing when I put her down at night?
  • Am I introducing solids in a healthy way, will she have allergies?
  • Why is she all of a sudden doing this weird head-tilt thing?
  • Am I reading to her enough?
  • Am I playing the right games with her to help her develop?

I can go on and on and on... and these are just the worries that I've had in the last 10 minutes or so.

I knew parenting wasn't easy, and that it involved a lot of decisions and judgement calls... but I never knew how much it would make me doubt myself, and second guess my own opinions. I spend way too much time every day trying to find the "right" way to do things. I know this comes from a place of love, I want what's best for her, but holy stress Batman, it's exhausting... and I can't seem to turn it off.

  1. I feel you girl. It's just part of being a mom and it makes us normal. We should be scared if we weren't constantly worrying about doing things the right way. We just love them SO much!
