Another First

Monday, we meet again... This weekend was pretty relaxing. We went to our final second trimester ultrasound and we (finally) did our taxes. It's almost hard to believe my due date is in just 90 days!

I've already started to wonder what kind of mom I will be. Will I be super passive? Will I lose my temper more than I'd care to admit? Will I cry due to stress and lack of sleep? Will I be overprotective? Will I post countless photos of our baby online or hide him from social media altogether?

The answer to almost all of those is I don't know. While I don't plan on over-posting our baby's face around the internet or being impatient, I'm going to be new to the "mommyhood." I've never been a mom before so, admittedly, I don't know a whole lot. I hear that's what it's like for most first-time parents, though.

Many people tell me it's instinctual and that it'll all come to me naturally. And while I hope that's the case, it's sort of scary not knowing what the experience will be like. It's another first for me, and firsts can be scary. It's scary thinking I might mess some things up. That I'll be constantly learning. I honestly would love to be the perfect parent to our little one but I know that's not humanly possible.

What I do know is I will love him endlessly and try to be the best mom I can be for him every single day.


  1. Yes!!! You never know what type of parent you will be beforehand you just have to trust yourself that you will do the best you can. :)

  2. I think you will be an amazing mom :)
