I had a conversation today with a friend at work about me embarking on motherhood and I made a realization -- I no longer freak out about being a mother. I used to live in this world of excitement and contentment about my decision to become a mom about 95% of the time. About 5% of the time I used to freak out about my decision! I decided, this emotion was probably normal and probably experienced by pregnant women too. But, ever since I got a glimpse of my little girl's face, that freak out emotion has left me. I haven't freaked out in over two and a half months. But not to appear ignorant -- I'm sure those emotions will make a reappearance when I'm trying to reason with an unreasonable toddler... In the meantime, I'll relish in a perfect score of excitement and contentment.
Four more sleeps people... only four more sleeps.
