Dear Me, How do those words taste going down?

I've only been at this Mommy thing for 3 months, but I'm already quite full from all the words I've eaten since this journey started:
  1. My child will never sleep in my bed.
  2. I will not obsess over nursing. If he gets it, great. If he doesn't, that's fine, too.
  3. I won't change my diet to nurse.
  4. I won't become codependent with my family when I have a baby.
  5. I won't become all homely looking and always wear ponytails.
  6. I won't let my marriage suffer while I obsess over my baby.
  7. My baby will be on a schedule.
  8. I'll have the kinks out by the time I go back to work.
Yuck. Those words don't taste good going down...


  1. we all do that girl :)---or at least I do:)

  2. I think the key words here are "I have only been at this Mommy thing for three months". Give yourself a break! I know you are doing a wonderful job and rolling with the punches; you had a premature baby and unusual circumstances. Hang in there.

  3. You're doing great! I pretty much have that list too... but now that Jax is almost 5 there are some additional items on my list! Oh the joys of motherhood. I've learned, just do what you need to do to get by and survive and be happy!
