Maria Sokoloff has conquered a lot of her dreams.
She's a successful actress.
She released a music album.
She found & married someone she loves, and now she's the mommy of a beautiful new baby!!!
On her blog she talks about the trials & tribulations of raising a child, and how it's a difficult yet rewarding experience for her!
Here's a bit of what she said:
"I’m slowly adjusting to the exhaustion that being a new parent brings. For the first two weeks I was running on adrenaline and hormones, and now my body is starting to catch on to the fact that sleep is no longer a part of our daily regimen.
The only part of mothering that has truly been difficult for me (so far) is breastfeeding. With the help of an amazing lactation consultant, we have designed a plan that combines breastfeeding with breast pumping as well as supplementing. This way I know exactly how much food she is getting.
[Enjoy] the temper tantrums, and before you know it, your kid is sneaking out in the middle of the night driving your car to Baja, Mexico. (Clearly I’m already dreading the teenage years!)"
What an insightful and honest blog - two qualities that are rarer and harder to find on the interwebs these days.
