It must have been fate that I read this article! :)

I read it on the 30th...then to my big surprise on the 31st I found out I was pregnant. Now I better go back and re-read it! :)


Ain't that the truth, sister! Nice to hear it from someone else!

This was an excellent post. I have #2 on the way and it's good to be reminded that a new set of challenges -- and the same ones we had the first time -- are a normal part of the experience.

Thanks for summing it all up, Kristin!


As I read through this, it conjured up memories of my daughter's first few months. A very turbulent time for me, but that's OK. What I didn't know then is just how normal everything I was experiencing really was. Thank for finding the words (and time) to share with us.

And I can only hope that #2 will be at least slightly less turbulent.....


And if it all bugs you, you're still a good mother.

Well stated.

So damn true. Every bit of it.


Oh, you brilliant girl! This kind of info, in it's brief, concise form is perfect for new parents. Write a little pocket book - it'll sell like hotcakes... All you've gotta do is find the time...!!!


I wish i would have read this when I was first pregnant. I just cut and pasted it to send to all of my pregnant friends...thanks!!!


Thank you. Every time I heard a friend, family member, or random person in Target say "Parenting....It can be so hard", it makes me feel better. My 1st just turned 3, and 2nd is 8 months...and these last 8 months have been joyous, yet excruicatingly difficult at times! I plan to forward this post to all my pregnant friends...couldn't have said it better myself.
