The Stealer

I know I have shared on Instagram about a few struggles with parenthood. I mean, who hasn’t? But the past few days, I have literally been in tears wondering what is wrong with me as a mother. Why can’t I do it all? Why can’t I have dinner on the table? Why can’t I get my house unpacked and decorated?

My baby was just over eight months old when I found out I was pregnant again. I had JUST barely lost most of that first baby weight and the inevitable flabby tummy was just starting to shape up. Getting pregnant so soon added a new layer of fat on the old.  Not only were my barely strengthened abs doubly stretched, the old workout wasn’t hitting it.  Innumerable sit-ups weren’t getting my lazy muscles strong again.  Was I ever…
