Lonely New Moms

So, yesterday on Surviving Motherhood it was about the lonely new mom syndrome. I almost had a seizure I related far to well to it. I mean, not now. I mean when I had Conner. Ifelt SO isolated. Days on end when I woudln’t leave our apartment. We lived on the 3rd floor and it was SUCH a pain to take him all the way to the car or deal with a stroller.
Anyway, it made me very grateful for the point I’m at in my life. Glad that I’m not back at that point.
A big shout-out to my new mom friends that feel lonely… love you peeps.
So, I’m in the market for a pampered chef crinkle cutter….
AND, the cake festivities for S’s birthday have already begun. For many of you who have been longtime blog readers you may remember that I, at one point in my life, used to frost and bake cakes for a living at the Cannon Center at BYU. Now, I am forced to make them for my own family (OK, not forced but I sure do like to see my kids eyes light-up with a home-baked cake — and I can’t bring myself to buy a store-bought one) and I suck at it. They come-out awful, they they stink. Anyway, this year Spencer wants a racecar theme. We went and bought some cups for our friends, and some racecar candles for the cake. I am thinking I can do the cake in chocolate frosting and then lay some licorice or something down for the track. Do the rest like grass….
Anyone with me here?

    I can relate to that syndrome myself. I’m very glad too that I’m not in that boat right now. Good luck with the cake – I’m sure it will be fabulous!

    So funny…now that there are three kids I do not deal with that at all, but I most definitely did when Bria was born. And even a little bit when Chloe was.

    Too much to do now with the other two, that I’m forced to take Sophia out no matter how much of a hassle (and it is a hassle) it is.

    Cake sounds cute!

    I totaly agree with the new mom syndrome. That is a tough adjustment. I made a ball cake for Ethan this summer, so if you ever need a ball mold let me know… Can’t wait to see the car cake.

    Well it is so nice to hear that other moms have been through this fun stage of life:) Thank you all for the encouragement! It is good to know that the sun shines again:)

    Oh man I went through the isolation too and have heard that from so many of my friends. I htink we all learned by the 2nd kid that we needed connection with other Moms during the week. Some church groups have weekly Mom’s gatherings at parks or other places which really helps!
