I’ll admit that despite my anticipation, I pretty much did nothing to prepare for parenthood. I mean, I read a few websites and had multiple apps on my phone for pregnancy information, but none of them really prepared me for parenting because it turns out, my baby does not read books or apps either.
But I simply did not expect to learn so much in such a short period of time. Parenting has been a bit of sink or swim situation. We don’t have all the right answers (and I am starting to suspect that there isn’t really a right answer to most situations), but we’re doing the best we can every day. And so far, we’re hanging in there.
I know some of these are kind of obvious, but these are the 10 things I learned about in my first 3 weeks as a parent.
What were the first things you learned when you became a parent?
