The truth is that parenting can be lonely…even for us married ladies. I sat at my table tonight eating dinner alone, again, as my husband had tagged me out and took over trying to get our daughter to bed. I kept her up so he could see her when he got home, so she was overtired and fighting sleep hard. I had waited to eat so that we could eat together for once as he often has school or work in the evening.
Having an infant can be overwhelming. In the early days it can seem baffling to find things to do with this tiny little person who is completely dependent upon you. Here are great ways to entertain and bond with your baby.
Family showers can be a life saver in the early days when you wonder if you’ll ever get to shower again. Mom, Dad, & baby can all shower together so you’ll get some much needed time with your spouse and a nice shower.
Confession: My post title is slightly misleading. Nothing can truly prepare you for what it’s like to be a new parent. However, these titles can certainly help you to know what to expect and help you in the many decisions that come along with parenting. I’m sure you’ll do great! I like to read a variety of takes on parenting and then choose what fits our family best. You don’t have to stick strictly to one parenting philosophy,
