I have a very love/hate relationship with Facebook. I love that I can see pictures of my friends new twin girls or that I can share pictures of Molly. I love that I can connect with other moms and ask questions or get advice. But I also kind of hate Facebook….I hate that people post the absolute stupidest crap or they put stuff up there that seems like it’s only there to make me feel bad (ie. I can’t believe you would feed your baby rice don’t you know it’s practically poison) super annoying, but this past weekend I saw exactly what I needed to see on Facebook.
We were having a super hard weekend with Molly. She wasn’t sleeping well, and screaming when we put her to bed, which was so unusual for her. During the day she was crying a lot, so frustrated and clingy. Not our finest moments, but I stumbled across this article and it was exactly what I needed in that moment. A little reminder that I am Molly’s mommy and there is a reason for all the crying, frustrations, and clingyness even if I don’t know exactly what that reason is. These days won’t be forever and she won’t always need me to hold her before she falls asleep, but whenever she does I will try to remember the beauty in those moments.
So every once in awhile there is something perfect waiting for you in your Facebook feed.
