What was your biggest suprise, after becomming a mother for the first time?

Did you forget to do something like to wash behind your baby\'s ears?

My biggest surprise was that I never thought I would spend so much time focused on if they went to the bathroom or not. Another big one was that you never think you will be one of those people that other passengers dread sitting by on an airplane but then you have a baby and you become one of them.

I was a mess. I had no idea what I was doing! I was constantly changing her diaper, even if it didn't need it! I didn't know what to do when she cried, I did forget to clean behind her ears once , but I eventually got the hang of it. It only took me about a month, but after that, I was a pro! I didn't realize how much work babies were either. OMG! They really are a full-time job. It's crazy sometimes and I hardly have a minute to myself, but I lvoe every second of it.

My biggest surprise was how natural it felt and I actually felt like I knew what I was doing. I was so nervous before she was born that I would have no idea what to do and that everything would be so difficult. I found the tasks were not difficult... the hard part was the 24-7 of it.

I read a quote once in my favorite book The Baby Whisperer, it said...
"I thought having a baby would be like getting a new puppy... boy was I wrong!!"
I thought this had sort of a funny ring to it. I never really knew how hard motherhood was, but so rewarding at the same time... I absolutely love it.

I never expected the joys I would get from having a child. I think I was in complete obliviousness when I was preggo!!!

How it was SO worth it and how I couldn't believe EVER loving something so much. How much stronger it made my marraige and how we became so much more focused on family so our son could have the best possible chance for a wonderful life.
How easy it was to quit my career and not look back.
