Yesterday, I woke up and realized that in 3 weeks Ryan will be 3. The time – where has it gone? I have no idea. This time last year I was coated in an ever-present layer of spit up and trying to sneak in a few minutes of sleep between naps. (some things never change) I was a mom of 2 under 2 and thinking that I must be legitimately insane for thinking this was a feasible thing.
And, of course, I was wrong. I survived. Both kids made it through alive and well and happy, as did I. And Alex. And our marriage. We all made it out of the first year intact. Thinking back has really made me think about what I would have done differently. I’m one of those people who don’t believe in regrets – I think everything happens for a reason. But even with that in mind, it’s hard not think about what I would tell my pre-baby self. When I first got pregnant with Ryan I knew absolutely nothing about babies, so the mere thought that I would be a mom in (less than) 9 short months was baffling. I had no idea what to expect and I’m sure it showed.
With this in mind, today I’m sharing some of the things I would tell my inexperienced self before having babies.
