I wore this pink tie-dye number for our first date night this weekend away from our daughter since she was born at the end of last year. We had a picnic on the beach with some friends, no kids allowed, which was amazing.
It’s so important to get out of the role of caretaker for a short time when all your thoughts are mommy-related 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for almost 8 months. I felt like I couldn’t leave her all this time, because first of all she wouldn’t take bottles — and on a deeper level, I kind of felt like I didn’t deserve to have fun and let loose for some reason, like it’s my sole job now to make sure my baby is well taken care of all the time. Plus, I’ve always been shy of asking others for help and feeling like burdening them.
Anyway, the takeaway lesson is that I need to put more effort into getting help, even though it’s hard for me, for the sake of my sanity. It’s easy to lose yourself in the role of mother.
This pink tie-dye maxi dress is pretty long if worn with flats or barefoot, so I tied it at the bottom so I wouldn’t trip; I think it’s a cute look too.
