Tick, Tick, Tick...

Whoo-hoo, 25 days people! Are you freaking out yet? I'm so ready to get this shin-dig started! While I'm not particularly worried or nervous about labor, I am getting anxious about what happens after the baby is here. Am I ready to be a mother? Will I be a good mother? Will I mess it up within the first week? Can I handle it? I'm assuming I'll be asking myself these questions for the rest of Benjamin's life.

*Sigh* The guilt of motherhood has already begun...

I hear ya! I think about that stuff all the time. Like, how do I make sure he's bundled up enough this winter? Will I know how much he needs to eat? Will I really learn his different "cries"? What if he freaks out in public or poops out of his pants?! But, you'll be fine, and I'll be fine b/c it'll all happen to you a couple of weeks before it happens to me...and I can learn from you =)

Stacy & Breezy: Allow Beckers the Childless Parenting Expert to ease your minds...
1. Ben and Connor will definitely "poop out of their pants," and you will both become intimately familiar with the many varieties of poop that the boys produce. Furthermore, you will both suddenly and incomprehensibly believe that everyone else in the world is interested in the quality and/or quantity of your sons' poop. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Please try to remember it. ;)
2. You don't really have to worry about f**king up your kids until they're old enough to understand what you say. So you have several months wherein all you have to do is provide food, shelter, and warm, loving contact. Cuddles are important (and easy).
3. You're both gonna do GREAT!!!
