I’ve had a number of different jobs and positions throughout my life, but none will ever be more important than parenting.
In a little bit more than six months, my husband and I will be adding the position of resume to our titles, and I’m absolutely terrified.
Being a parent is, obviously, a large responsibility for a tiny human being, and it’s a lot of pressure for new parents.
Now granted, it’s not my first rodeo with a baby.
I’ve held a baby and babysat for my cousin when she was little, but that’s different. It was my cousin who I could give back to her parents, and I had my mom there to help in case I needed it.
On top of that, I had a robot baby in high school health class, and it just gives me chills to think about that experience.
We’re talking about a child that will be in our house 24/7, and I’m not sure what to do. I’ve even already began to try and convince my mother to move in with us to make sure I do nothing wrong.
Granted, I’m sure that this is a fear that everyone goes through with his or her first child. My husband tends to be frightened for mere moments and then go into the mode that everything will be fine.
You can definitely expect to hear more about my fears, hopes and preparations as I get ready to become a…mom.
