This was such a timely topic from Growing Up Geeky! Over the past two weeks, I’ve started to imagine my mothering habits as a continuous post on the FAIL Blog in order to maintain my sanity. I should have started to do this much earlier considering that I would have even had a post to write even before the birth.
March 28, 2010- Like the doctor ordered, I showed up at the hospital to get some initial drugs to help with the next day’s induction of Q-ball. But, I didn’t realize that this meant I was actually going to be admitted to the hospital and not going home again. I hadn’t packed my bags or my husband. Fail.
And, the last 6.5 months have continued in much the same fashion…
Sometime Just Last Week- What’s this extra snap for the carseat? Should have been using this the whole time. Fail.
Sometime During Planning Our First Family Vacation- This will be so restful! We’ll catch up on tons of sleep in the hotels! Fail.
Any Sunday Morning- Dress baby early for church in her best dress. Baby spits up. Fail.
Any Night- Carefully place nearly sleeping baby in crib. Baby looks at Mama with big, beautiful smile. Fail.
Every Passing Minute- She grows. And grows. And grows. I never realized how fast the time with infants really does go. And, despite the countless times I was warned, I just couldn’t realize how true it is. Fail.
