i stumbled upon this article today and i'm really happy i did.

have a read, have a laugh, and then come back here and tell me what you think.

me?  well it certainly made me feel a lot better about things.  because i'm nervous!  excited, definitely - but nervous, absolutely.  and after reading this little gem, i feel a lot better about the next chapter ahead.

10 True Things About the First Year of Parenthood

Not For Reuse


  1. Very good article! Don't be nervous, just know that you have a lot of figuring out to do. A lot of understanding to find. And go in with few expectations, so you aren't disappointed. I think the take away from the article (and what I liked) was be patient, be humble, and no matter how "prepared" you think you are, you have a lot of experiencing to do. Which is not to say that that info was a waste of time, or that you are "stupid". It will give you great ideas to try and see what works for you and your family. Unfortunately, the first child (as my mother called her) is the "experiment". You will have to try all kinds of things, and sometimes, you never know what will be the most beneficial or work the best. Good luck! You can do it :)

  2. oooh, i say 3 and 6 on that list are kinda huge!! every baby is so so so so so different. and so when you get that handy "advice" because people assume all babies have the same needs, you just nod and smile, nod and smile :) ;)

  3. Oh my gosh I LOOOOOVE this article! I laughed a LOT at the poop one. ;) I'm so excited for you Steph! This is going to be such an amazing adventure!


it's always great to hear from you!
