When You Realize Motherhood Really is a Small World, After All

Thanks to Disney for sponsoring this post and giving me a It’s a Small World tee & pant set and It’s a Small World Plush Giraffe for free.

I’m at a place in my motherhood journey, where I’m feeling completely overwhelmed. I’m sleep deprived. I’m second guessing some of my parenting choices.

I’m certain all my issues and insecurities go back to not having the rest I need, not eating properly, not having enough me time. It’s all adding up, making me feel like I’m just doing it all wrong. Each time I reach out to my fellow mama friends, they’re all talking about similar issues. I look at them and see amazing moms and wonder how they can even have similar struggles when they seem to have it all together. It makes me realize that motherhood is a small world after all.

However, regardless of their “themes”, there are three items that I can never get enough of.
