On being a first time mom...
By Don't Quote the Raven on February 06, 2013
I remember vividly being handed this tiny little person for the first time and realizing, well shoot. Ok, so now what? Does this thing come with special instructions? Does the hospital staff come home with me for the first month or two? And if not, can I just stay right here in this hospital room 'til he goes to kindergarten? There are a lot of fears that go along with being a first time mom. You are more careful, extra worried about germs and ohmygosh you had better wash your hands before you come within ten feet of my child. You hardly get any sleep as that time is spent with your ear down to his mouth making sure he's still breathing. Being a first time mom is hard work, as everything is so new.
