I really enjoy the show The Big Bang Theory, and as a new Mom, there are a lot of episodes in which Bernadette was written so well as a new Mom. The episode after her daughter is born, Bernadette has a hard time getting her baby to calm down and sleep. There’s a line she says to Howard (her husband, for those of you unfamiliar with the show) where she says “Why does she hate me?” As a new Mom myself, I totally related with the feeling and tears. My first several weeks, I didn’t know how to help my baby girl (and get her to stop crying), but it just took time. Bernadette was also apprehensive about returning to work, saying it was harder than she had thought it would be. I return to work on Monday, and I know the feeling. I love my job, and I love my baby. I’m glad I’m part time. I am ambitious and want to promote in my career, and I want to enjoy every minute I have with my baby girl. Do you have a TV character you relate to st certain times in your life?
