Real Moms Of Genius

Today we salute you self-educated, first time, young mother
(Self-educated, first time, young mother)
You tirelessly poured over your "What To Expect" book,
until you knew just what to expect.
(My kids are going to be perfect!)
You fascinated your friends and family with everything you were going to do right.
Knowing that you would breastfeed and train the 1 month old to sleep through the night.
(Why is that kid still screaming!!)
So raise your coffee cup, self-educated, first time young mother who has not slept through the night in two years.
Know that moms everywhere have figured out just like you that there is no perfect way.

Laughing, laughing! You are so brilliant! Isn't that What To Expect Book just scary? That section that says, "Don't read this unless you've been diagnosed with horrible atrocities"?? That's like saying, "Please read this, because you know you need a hundred more things to worry about and many sleepless nights before your baby even gets here..."

That is hilarious! I have come to realize that it's not just the first time mom that goes through these things. It's also the we-waited-several-years-for-the-next-kid-and-have-forgotten-everything-about-having-our-own-newborn moms. Because that feeling came back when I was pregnant with my youngest 2 years ago!
