    Oh, do I get this. I have so many things that I want to say, and need to say, but I just can’t. Life takes over or there are just things I can’t actually say or I get a moment to sit and write, and I just can’t. It’s so frustrating.

  2. Greta says:

    Oy, do I get this. Of course, your priorities have changed and things that seem so trivial (like laundry and dishes) end up taking the wheel your whole life is filled to the brim like it is with a newborn. I hope that when things settle down, if you still need to flush this feelings out and get them onto “paper” to share with us, you can.

  3. Alexa says:

    I do or have in recent past shared all of these sentiments. Funny how the best years of motherhood are also so overwhelming. I too am extremely overwhelmed. But the babies make it worth it!!

  4. Oh I know exactly how you’re feeling right now. My blog has suffered quite a bit since Easton was born, and so has my clean house. lol. I actually just wrote a post about how my new goal is just to Relax and be OK with all of it. It was therapeutic to write it, now let’s hope I can live it.

    Oh girl, I feel you……..I mean completely, totally, KNOW EXACTLY how you feel. The lonely and isolating feeling is all too familiar to this momma who right now is allowing her toddler to watch a cartoon just so I can feel connected some where.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I <3 You.

    I wanted to tell you that I felt isolated when I nursed Cameron a lot of the time. Because of that, I promised myself I would not let breastfeeding isolate me with Gavin. I now only 'escape' to breastfeed if I feel I want the escape and otherwise I just do it where I am in front of whoever I am with.

    I guess my point in this is not to say breastfeeding isn't isolating. And you only wrote one sentence so I don't really know how you are feeling, but I want to encourage you and give you permission to stay in whatever social situation you are in if you want to breastfeed. For me, I needed to hear that message a few times before I allowed it to sink in.

    And if this doesn't help, then ignore me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know all about everything you want to talk about, to an extent. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yes, enjoy those adorable boys!
