A whole new world

I attended a baby shower today which reminded me of how exciting a first baby can be.

That first load of laundry with tiny socks and onesies. Bringing home all that new baby stuff from the shower and not knowing what you’re going to do with it. Preparing the baby’s room, installing the car seat, figuring out what diapers to buy. So much stuff to do!

Breathe.

If there’s anything I’d like to share with a new mom, just one piece of advice, it would be just that. Breathe. You’ll be fine. Revel in the miracle that is your baby. Enjoy every minute, every second.

Yes, it’s hard. Yes, you’ll probably be sleep-deprived for a long time. Yes, you will feel like you’ve lost control of your once-perfect (and much quieter) life. But it’s all temporary and it’s all worth it.

Now, almost seven years into parenthood, those tiny socks and onesies are long gone. There are no more diapers to change, no more baby bottles to wash and no more mushy baby food to make. Like I said, it’s all temporary and it’s all worth it. I promise!
