- Becoming a parent is far more overwhelming than anyone can prepare you for. The most common thing that I heard from people was to “enjoy your sleep while you still can” almost as a curse on my dire future with a baby. This got frustrating to hear after about the 3rd time and was almost unbearable to hear the 75th time. It isn’t the amount of sleep that leads you to feel overwhelmed. It is your realized ignorance and inadequacy in a major new area of life compiled with a new responsibility unparalleled to any other.
- Becoming a parent is far more amazing than anyone can prepare you for. The first time I heard him cry. When they told me how much he weighed. The first time I saw him bundled in a blanket. The way his mouth curves when he is hungry and frustrated. Every time he gets hiccups after he eats. The way his eyes look when he is happy and content and stares back at you. Just thinking of any of these things could bring me to tears with pride and joy.
So…my two week conclusion about parenting: awesome.
