Before the baby was born, Donnie and I were at Target and I saw this book called "I Was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids". The title made me chuckle, and now after having Josiah I can see how true this really is.
Before Josiah I had a list of things I would NEVER do as a mom. Sadly within a short 24 hours, the list had gone out the window.
Here's the list:
1.) I said I would NEVER use a pacifier.
The first night we had Josiah in the hospital he would NOT stop crying for anything. Everything we tried would not stop the crying. Soon I looked at Donnie and said "Put the pacifier in him!!!!"
2.) I said I would NEVER use formula.
After 24 hours with Josiah not really eating, and getting yellower by the minute, I knew we had to do something. Formula was something I really did not want to use. However, within 10 minutes he had drank an ounce and was sleeping. I then discovered formula is my friend.
3.) I said I would NEVER use plastic bottles.
I was so excited about my Dr. Brown glass bottles, that I swore I would never use plastic. However, in the hospital with the formula feedings we did use the plastic. And when we got home what have we used? You guessed it, plastic. However, I do plan on using my glass ones right away.
I have a feeling my list will get longer by the day. I'm telling you, I was a really good mom before I had kids!
