33 totally awesome things I’ve learned about being a Mom

I had the best of intentions to write this sweet Mother’s Day post, and talk about how amazing being a mom is. But after lots of coffee & lack of sleep decided to share these wonderful little nuggets of awesomeness I have experienced during my first year of being a mom!

#1. You will feel like your pregnant forever.
*Oh hello due date, nice to see you. Obviously your baby didn’t get that memo.
