Guys, this parenthood thing is hard. Especially for an emotional postpartum mommy.
These past few weeks have been a little hard. I mentioned earlier that Jack loves both of us equally, but some days it is just hard to see that. I spend all day with the baby but when Tyler comes home all of a sudden it seems like Jack just lights up and wants to play. Why doesn't he like to play with me? Is it because he sees me all day? Why are daddies so much more fun to kids than mommies?
Then I came across this quote today:
On hard days like today I just need to remember that I am important in Jack's life, even if it doesn't seem like it right now. I am by nature the comforting one, the nourishment, the security. He does need me. I am important. I am different than Tyler, but that's okay. We both have equally important roles as parents.
