So if you don't know already....this post's title is taken from lyrics by Gavin Degraw, but I'm hoping it's fitting. This is my first official blog. I don't really know what I'm doing, but I enjoy reading other people's blogs, so I thought...WHY NOT??? With family and friends so far away, this is one way to keep everyone posted on the sweet happenings in the F.T.M.'s household.
Ok, "sweet happenings" may have been a slight exaggeration, but when you're a first time mom (or maybe a mom in general), your "sweet happenings" change from REAL excitement and drama in the eyes of the normal world to changes in poop (yes, the baby's), first swallows of "solid" food (I'm still confused as to why they call it SOLID--but that's for another post), sitting up, night wakings, and weird changes in your own body. Suddenly the concept of T.M.I. flies right out the window as you think all your dear loved ones want to know EVERYTHING that comes with being a mommy and having a baby.
All to say, this blog is my way to chronicle/vent/share my experiences of being a first time mom and hopefully connect with people who have "been there, done that", ARE there, or are too scared/grossed out after reading my posts to ever want to be there. You can look forward hearing about all my experiences of being a wife, a friend, daughter, sister, an attempting-to-find-an-online-job-so-I-can-comfortably-stay-at-home-with-my-daughter-for-a-long-while kinda gal, and most importantly--a MOM!
