I have a feeling this may be a recurring post theme on here. Let me kick them off by saying I have an irrational fear that when I become a mother I will no longer have time to put on makeup, and I will spend the next 4-6 years of my life only remotely resembling my former self – a once perfectly plucked, powdered, prissy girly girl who could spend hours gazing at and touching all the pretty products in the Mecca that is Sephora.

Along the same lines of that fear comes the second irrational fear. I will be one of THOSE moms who so clearly doesn’t have her shit together. I will be stumbling into business meetings or parent teacher conferences exactly two minutes late, and never a minute sooner. People will notice the spit up that is still crusted on the collar of my suit jacket because I never got around to taking it to the cleaners after the last time I thought it would be a good idea to hug the baby good bye before leaving the house, and that people will smell that smell on me….that smell of slimy graham crackers and baby drool. I don’t know what it is, but I have an aversion to graham crackers when mixed with babies.

  • NOTHING CUTER. The end.
  • His hair is such a delightful surprise. I never pictured one of my future babies with white-blonde hair! What’s a surprising feature you love about your baby? 🤩
  • Sometimes it’s like this, moms: You hand the camera to someone else, and you say exactly what you want them to capture, and you ask nicely that they please try to capture a flattering angle, but most of all that they just take a TON OF SHOTS because you are more likely to love one if there are many to choose from. You take control and you tell people, “Hey! I need a picture with the baby. So here’s the camera.” And you don’t delete the shots, even if you think you hate all of them, ok? You can’t rely on someone else to give this gift to you. You give it to yourself. And your baby. You both deserve it. Photos are a life treasure that are guaranteed to appreciate in value as time goes on. They are the most sound investment you can ever make. So invest. Be intentional.
  • Genuinely baffling. Their dad has shown them from the minute they were born that he’s more than capable of all the parenting things. And yet they continue to forget he functions the same way I do. #thingsparentsactuallysay
