Things I've learned as a new mother

-That I would spend 12 of every 24 hours in some state of undress for the first few weeks

-That it IS possible to get tired of wearing sweats every day and to actually want to wear real clothes

-That my maternity clothes would hang off of me but my real clothes make me look eight months pregnant

-That I would want nothing more than for the baby to fall asleep but then anxiously wait for him to wake up so I could play with him again

-That breastfeeding would be one of the best and absolute worst experiences of my life

-How comical the suggested guideline of 8-10 dirty diapers a day is

-How much my baby's smiles and little coos would melt my heart

-That there's nothing more attractive than my husband holding our son

-That there's no better feeling in the world than rocking my beautiful baby to sleep

-That I could survive on such little sleep

-That motherhood is the hardest job I've ever loved

  1. I just read all of these to my friend Stacia in Wichita and she agreed on all of them (well except the one about the sweats). You are so funny, am so happy you're doing a blog!
