  • Hard to say. Stressful but worth it. It never gets easier, there are good days and bad days, and when you have tackled on obstacle there is a brand new one to tackle.

  • Congrats!

    In much the same way that pregnancy brings you a new body to get used to, being a new mom brings you challenges and feelings that you will need to get used to. Some aspects are wonderful, some are a little scary. You may be tired beyond belief at times. You may find yourself worrying over tiny things about your new baby. You will feel a love deeper than you imagined. I guess, for me, motherhood (especially in the beginning) is an emotional roller coaster. GL, and enjoy. :-)

  • Every day will be something new. Its not a hard job but its demanding. They will make your heart sing and they will drive you crazy an hour later. Kids are a wonderful, amazing, maddening, crazy experience that you will treasure one day when you watch them walk down the aisle to graduate from college or high school or get married. How they turn out is up to you. Always have an open heart and open ears. They will need your guidance thru life and you can make it the most rewarding experience and be forming a bond between you and your child that will last a lifetime. How great of a bond depends on you. Keep it light, have fun and don't make mountains out of mole hills. Love them and they will love you back forever. I wish you the best and most rewarding experience of your life.

  • congrates! its is defintly a rollar coaster! youll have some down moments where you are stressed out, maybe affraid of the what ifs, and why do i feel like this moments, and then the OMG how could that much come out of that lil baby?!,or why cant i make this baby stop crying? but when that baby looks at you and smiles for the first time,or when they reach up to touch your face and you see the wonder in their eyes, or even the first few kicks you feel,or the hick ups that tickle like mad...its maynot be the most glamorous "job" and you dont get holidays off,but it is the greatest and best thing in the world!!! :)
