Things I'm Learning as a New Mom

  • Actual baby's breath smells so much sweeter than baby's breath the flower
  • Real tears on baby's face can quickly bring real tears to mom's face
  • The phrase "I would die for that" actually means something now
  • Hot coffee is a major luxury as it is either,
    • cold before you get a chance to drink it or 
    • it gets knocked over and you spend the rest of the morning cleaning it up
  • As hard as any other jobs were, they are nothing compared to being a mom
  • Outlet covers are not just baby proof
  • Babies really can learn to use the potty 
  • Cloth diapering, breastfeeding and making your own baby food is possible, I'm continually amazed thinking about how much time and money we have saved just by doing these 3 things
  • A baby sleeping on you actually can melt your heart
  • You don't have to give up who you are to be a mom but it probably will change you for the better anyway
  • Even though there is "new and improved" everything, sometimes doing things the "old fashioned" way is still better
  • Your baby still loves you and thinks you are beautiful no matter what you look like
  • Also, when you are holding a cute baby it doesn't matter what you look like because nobody is looking at you
  • Power cords, cell phones, remotes and kitchen utensils are way more fun to play with than expensive toys
  • Your greatest accomplishments in life are mere specs compared to the incredible human you have created
  • As frustrated and tired and worn out as you might feel, you know you would never trade it and imaging life before baby seems impossible
That's just a few of the things I have learned so far, I am sure that there is more to come, and for the first time ever I am enjoying school, babies are great teachers :)
