Just Sayin’

By  0 Comments

My co-host, Mike, and his wife, Katie, are expecting their first child this September.  I’m so happy for them. As he tells me about her nausea, cravings and their buybuy BABY™ registration adventures, I just smile and remember how I felt while I was expecting my first baby.

I’ll never forget that first car ride home from the hospital after I had my sweet Julianne. My husband drove about five miles per hour and took only backroads. We couldn’t believe our precious, pure, tiny little girl was now a part of this big, crazy world! I wanted the three of us to live in a bubble. I quickly realized that wasn’t exactly realistic!

Before I knew it, she was crawling, walking and eating regular food. Then her baby brother came along and really spiced up our lives! Car seats were traded for boosters. Cribs were replaced with full-sized beds. We said goodbye to nannies and hello to school teachers. Now, we’re a soccer mom and dad spending most weekends at the fields and hosting sleepovers. 

With every stage, I say I love “this one” the most. But the truth is, I love the next phase even more than the one before. Fact is, I just love motherhood. It’s a crazy, wild ride with no manual, just a lot of guessing and hoping! But, it’s one I wouldn’t trade for the world.
