When I was pregnant with our first child, there were days that I felt like my head would explode if someone tried to give me one more piece of unsolicited parenting advice. “You’ll be tired..sleep when baby sleeps!” “Don’t drink coffee while you’re breastfeeding!” (HA!) “Don’t let them watch TV until they’re 15!”
While people meant well, they started to sound like the same annoying song stuck on repeat. Their so-called words of wisdom were truly going in one ear and out the other. Now that I have a 3 year old and a baby, I TOTALLY understand what these do-gooders were ACTUALLY trying to say. For anyone that’s curious, allow me to put some weight behind some of those coined phrases that you hear so often while awaiting your first little nugget…..
