First Month Of Mamahood

Few things I learned from the early days of mamahood...

: That when it's your child, getting pee'd on, pooped on, and threw up on isn't all that gross.
: That a pacifier can be sanity-saving.
: That adding two extra bottles into the rotation can also be sanity-saving.
: That I have to get up to pump in the middle of the night no matter how sleepy I am. Seriously have to.
: That a burp cloth is now a permanent part of my outfit.
: That I would let Pargo go THREE weeks without a bath.
: That my 7-3 job is a dreamy vacation
: That sometimes I don't have time to brush teeth or use the bathroom.
: That getting through the day without having to change baby's outfit is a great day.
: That when I get my fussy baby to calm down, I feel like a supermom.
: That I love the book "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut" by Dr. Seuss. I want to memorize it.
: That I would stop in the middle of a bite and run to my crying baby.
: Then when I am out by myself, I want to hurry back home.
: That watching hubby playing with Anna is 1000x better than any television shows.
: That even though mamahood is so physically draining, I love Anna all the way to the moon and back.

  1. Pardon me for my ignorance but where do you place the burp cloth? I remember carrying my friend's kid and he started gnawing and salivated all over my shoulder! haha. The burp cloth is good for that too?

  2. The best of times and the worst of times. That sums up parenting during the infant days to me. And for us, burp cloths take care of anything that comes out of the top end of a baby while the diapers focus on the lower half.

  3. @ knickknacks: I just place it on my shoulder. A burp cloth is good for anything! Spills, spits, drools, etc. And Gerber cloth diapers make the best burp cloths!
