Two sides of the same coin

Two sides of the same coin

Make no bones about it, I am over the moon about becoming a mom.  I’m also pretty overwhelmed.  On the one hand I am incredibly calm and worry free about the process of being pregnant. In fact, I told my Mom just the other day that my biggest concern with my pregnancy is that I’m not concerned enough! As far as my growing baby is concerned I will worry once I am given something to worry about.

But on the flip side of that same coin I keep thinking about all of the things I don’t know how to do, don’t have and don’t know to buy. I worry that I’m not going to know what to do with my new baby, and I will be raising a bored child.  Today I found something that shows me I am not alone in these new mom worries and concerns.  I have found help!

    sarah, the minute you hold that little one…most of it comes naturally. After that, its a matter of prayer and winging it! I’m still winging it, 3 kids later. The bummer is the minute you think you have it down, the next kid is completely different!! 🙂 You will be a great mom!! Oh, funny new mom story…poor connor had a 12 month binkie the first three months of his life. I had no idea they came in ‘sizes’. I quickly figured out why the binkie seemed to take up his whole face…i hadn’t bought the newborn one! 😉
