An Experienced Amateur

As the birth of our daughter approaches (very quickly, I may add), the more I’m realizing…..I have no idea what I am doing! Our son is only 2 1/2, but I feel like that newborn stage is so far away. I get the basics: keep the baby alive. My son’s infant stage is such a blur of no sleep, spit up, being overwhelmed.  Now, on top of not knowing what I am doing, I am also raising a toddler! Talk about being overwhelmed!

I’ve heard that raising a baby is like riding a bike. A few years ago I decided to go on a bike ride after several years off. I felt like I was going to die afterwards. Hopefully baby raising goes better… bike_fall
