Yesterday I told you how babies and blog buttons are related. Today, I am sharing the first installment of my Motherhood Manual, which will cover many other tidbits I’ve learned from my time with babies. That’s right, let the wisdom flow…
Prologue Preface Background:
A few years ago, I had a baby. He was my firstborn and I was ready. I was healthy, emotionally-stable, well-educated, and happily married (all of that is still true, by the way… although I’m often faking it on the emotionally stable front). My baby was healthy and wonderful (that’s still true too) and I knew I would be a great mom. I mean, how hard could it be?
It turns out though, that the greeting cards that show the beautiful well-dressed mother gazing adoringly at her newborn son in his spotless onesie, while dinner is cooking in the crockpot in the background, may not be providing the most realistic information about what one is getting into when becoming a parent. I know. Why would they lie to us? It’s just wrong. So, in an effort to provide full disclosure to any parents-to-be, and, to give a fuller picture of motherhood, I am writing this guide-to-end-all-guides for the expectant mother…The Motherhood Manual.
Watch for chapter one (Tea & Beer: or Mother of the Year Award Slips through Fingers) next week.
