Number of kids and ages: 3 kids! Age 3, 1 and 1

The most surprising thing about being a first-time mom is how much it made me slow down and enjoy simple moments!
My expectation vs. experience breastfeeding was I expected breastfeeding to be easy. I didn't realize how time consuming it is! I felt like my schedule completely revolved around nursing and pumping.
The best piece of advice about motherhood is some days can be so so hard, but just remember that other moms are going through the same thing! Motherhood can often feel isolating. Find other moms with kids of similar ages so you can support each other! I am on a text chain with 14 other moms and we text each other for daily for advice or just to vent!
