After re-reading my last post, I realized it may have come across as a bit self-righteous or preachy. Just for the record, I am sure that there will be many, many times in Owen’s life that I won’t have the slightest clue what he needs. And there will be times when I feel like I don’t know anything about being a mother.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last 4 weeks, it’s that the old adage is true: Once you think you understand your baby or have a routine going, it will change.
So please don’t get me wrong — I know I will not feel this way forever 🙂 I am just relishing the little lessons I have learned over the last few weeks, and feeling confident in my ability to figure out what he needs even if I don’t know it right away.
But I’m not a mind reader. Ask me again tomorrow how I’m feeling and it might be completely different!
