A dose of motherhood


What's the best way to prepare for motherhood? That's something I've thought a lot about since finding out I was preggo. How do I really prepare for such a major transition in life. Is it even really possible to prepare myself for the change? Maybe not. But, just this week, I think I semi-figured it out. It just requires taking care of a rambunctious two year old, and helping my sister out with her newborn, as in, she was born on Friday, newborn. I'm pretty sure that's the best and most efficient dose of, "welcome to motherhood" I can really get before experiencing it all for myself.

Playing with my crazy-silly nephew, and drooling over my adorable niece, heck, life as a mom seems pretty awesome. And it doesn't hurt to have a sister who I can ask all of my curious questions, to. Hopefully after a few more days, I'll feel ready to do this on my own. I kind of thought after this week I'd be more worried about this little man coming, but when all I want to do is cuddle my teeny tiny niece in my arms, and play tickle monster with my nephew, the worry has quickly disappeared.

I love this. And there really is no better way to prepare, at least mentally. Now you know you can do it!
