As my last few weeks of pregnancy are winding down, I find myself getting extremely impatient. I always thought I would be terrified for the big moment to come because of all the pain, but I just don't care anymore. Yes, I've had a wonderful pregnancy (minus the first four months of non-stop morning sickness) but I'm ready to hold my daughter in my arms. I'm ready to officially become a mom.
I am getting annoyed at the people that I share this with saying "just wait til your up all night and she won't stop crying" or "wait til your changing diapers all the time." They say it as if I have no clue as to what I've gotten myself into. As if they've clued me into some secret knowledge that I wasn't aware of. I know I could ask my 2 friends that just had their baby "so do you guy wish she would just go back into the womb so you could get some sleep and quit pooping all the time?" They would without a doubt think I was an idiot for asking. So why do all these people feel the need to act like "oh, she is a first time mom, she has no idea what she is in for"? Well, to all those people, Yes I do realize being a parent is the hardest job in the world and I realize that a baby is a massive responsibility. But I also know that this child is a gift from God that I've been praying for and I'm ready to meet her.
Sorry, I did not intend for this post to be a rant.
Hopefully my next post will include a picture of my daughter. I have this strong feeling that she is going to be a little early especially if she is impatient like her parents.
