I don't know about you ladies, but I tend to be a pretty independent person and I always think I can do everything myself. In all of the reading and preparing for this baby, one thing keeps popping up is that I have had to try and retrain my brain about: accepting help from others. I keep feeling that urge already to say "we're fine" or "we can do it" for when baby arrives. I am starting to realize that I would be foolish to turn down offers of actual help! This having a newborn thing is going to be amazing, but overwhelming. If someone wants to do the dishes, make a meal, or watch the baby so I can nap, why on earth would I play the martyr and not accept the help?
This whole idea of letting other people do things for me is a struggle, so my last few weeks of pregnancy is going to be spent training my brain to say "yes, thank you" and graciously accepting help when it is offered. This might be one of my biggest new mom challenges yet! How about you ladies? Anyone else like me struggling with this whole "other people actual just want to help make life easier for you - accept it!" concept??
