When I was newly pregnant with my first baby, I was already so nervous about losing sleep as a new Mom. I worried I may never sleep again. What if the baby is up all night for years and I’m an eternal zombie?? Of course, I had many other things I worried about as well, but for some reason this was something that scared me.
If you’re a parent, you know how difficult it can be to entertain your kids! Kind of like when you buy them a present, and they don’t even look at the toy you spent an hour deciding on, they just play with the box! Then, that box ends up in the trash… Well, this is one little gift for your kiddos that is practically free and is sure to entertain over and over.
As I’m about to bake some cookies with the kiddos, I keep thinking about all the prego ladies I know right now, and my friends who have asked about what to register for. There are so many, WAY too many, products out there being pushed in the faces of new parents, advertised as a must-have item. I mean, what the heck it’s totally overwhelming for a new Mom! It’s super hard to know what to buy and what will end up costing 100 bucks, and just sit in the corner of your baby’s room.
I have seen some completely ridiculous baby products. First of all, a Baby Bum Fan. So your baby doesn’t get diaper rash. Really?
Baby Poop Alarm. This alarm senses your baby’s poop and/or pee, and begins playing a song to let you know. Because the smell of crap won’t tip you off. Also, when do babies NOT have pee in their diaper? That thing will just be playing melodies all dang day!
I never really understood what being a parent meant. I saw other people with kids and thought nothing of it. My sisters had children before I did, and I could not understand what the big deal was! It’s easy to be a Mom! It’s just a normal part of life. Easy peasy. It wasn’t until the day I had my first baby, that I felt the extreme magnitude of Motherhood. The intense, and very difficult delivery I endured that day, changed me as a person.
