For quite a few years after getting married I really didn’t want children. I had my dogs and cats and I loved them very much. I still had a lot of freedom (and sleep) with just pets. Of course, I eventually changed my mind and decided that I would like to try this “baby thing” that everyone said was so wonderful 🙂 I am now a proud mother of 2 beautiful little girls. My oldest is 3 and my youngest is 7 months. The little newcomer is a very happy, chubby baby. You have heard it before, but I will say it again – being a mom (at home parent) is the hardest job in the world – and very, very worth it.
Here are a couple of parenting myths: 1. “when its your own child the poopy diapers won’t even be gross to you”. 2. “you will love your children SO much that you won’t EVER want time away from them”. 3. “your love for your kids will outweigh your love for your spouce”. (in my case, my husband is still #1).
During the last part of my pregnancy up until now, I have tried to keep a pretty clear schedule as it is difficult to sing at 9 months pregnant and its difficult to travel with a newborn!! BUT Im happy to say that my chubby baby is eating like a champ and is getting a bit more independent of mama so I am looking forward to filling up my “singing” schedule once again.
