Sharon Mundia opens up on motherhood struggles as her daughter turns 1
She opens up!
“This time last year, I had just given birth to Naila. My body was sore and fatigued and I was terrified at the thought that this delicate, little being was now fully in my care. That first night in hospital was baptism by fire because at some point it was just me and her and I couldn’t believe that the nurses and my family thought I knew what I was doing. I had no clue how many more sleepless nights, sore nipples, unexplainable outbursts and snail-clutching moments lay ahead. .” Read part of her post.
She however said that the experience has been worth the struggle and has seen her grow in many different ways, adding that she is now a totally different woman from the one she was when she gave birth to her daughter Naila.
“But I also had no idea how much deeper my love for her would grow. You guys. I can’t explain the joy I’ve experienced from seeing her do the little things we take for granted. Like sitting up, crawling, cooing or walking for the first time. I’m so proud of the person that she’s growing into: curious yet reserved, chatty (in the way a one year-old with basically no vocabulary would be) yet observant. Naila has brought such light, clarity, joy and love into my life and today my little lady turned one. ONE! Thank you God.
A journey that is full of contradictions and learning moments. And to think it’s only our first year together. In some ways, it feels as if a new layer of me was also born on that night - a layer that I’ve only begun to explore. I’m so excited for the future and grateful for the family and friends that have showered Naila with love since day one. Thank you God for blessing me with one of the purest forms of love. Happy birthday my little bambino!” she said.
