“When You Are a Mother, You Will Understand…”

This blog post is actually my first ever as featured blogger on TheBump.com.  I will be writing two entries for them a month and will let you all know here when they are published.  I have to say, I’m super excited about our partnership.  TheBump.com is a great online resource for all things pregnancy and baby related, and I have met so many wonderful women on their message boards who have shared this crazy journey with me.  Click here to check out “When You Are a Mother, You Will Understand…”

  1. Hi! I have been reading your blog since you started trying to get pregnant, but I have never commented before. I am a major lurker, I’m not currently TTC, but I just hang around baby stuff because, you know, its on the brain. Anyways, I love your blog! You keep it real, and I love that.

    Way to go on becoming a featured blogger on thebump! You have such great, funny, and smart words to share, and I agree with Amie, you should write a book!

    Take care!

  2. Hi there! I have been reading your blog for a few years now, but I have never commented before. I am a major lurker. I am not currently TTC, but I hang around all the baby stuff, because, you know, its on the brain 🙂 Anyway, I just wanted to say congrats on becoming a featured Bump Blogger! how exciting! I love reading your writtings, you so funny, smart, and have the best advice, and you keep it real, which I love 🙂

    Take care! Cant wait til I can actually use some of your priceless advice 🙂

  3. I concur on all points. Except for the mashed potatoes–it’s fries all the way, baby.

    I’d also like to add re: freaking out over child not breathing at night–as soon as you figure out they’re not dead, you totally want them to go back to sleep. Like immediately.

  4. That’s okay, Amy. I know sometimes this is a little buggy 🙂

    And thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm. Now I just have to keep up the good work when I have actual deadlines to meet.

    Maureen, yes, French Fries are a far less messy option. They are like portable mashed potatoes 😉

    Also, I must agree with you on the going back to sleep thing. That gave me a good laugh.
