“But if, after a good try, you aren’t able to breastfeed, well, guess what? That is totally awesome, too. I’d like to take this moment to remind you that you created life—yeah, life—you know, the most amazing process in the world. You just did that, so whether you breastfeed your baby or feed them from a Yak’s bladder, seriously it’s not worth the upset. This does not in any way diminish your amazing value as a mother.” – Betsy Chasse from It Came Out Of My Vagina, Now What?!
Here’s what most people will never tell you about becoming a parent. It sucks. Once that baby pops out, your life, as you know it, is over. No more sleep, no more peeing by yourself, no more perky tits, and say bye-bye to that bikini-worthy tummy. And that’s the truth…well okay, maybe not really the whole truth.
Certainly it’s closer to the truth than what you’re probably imagining—bliss filled nights gazing lovingly at your sweetly sleeping child, fun-filled days at the park endlessly swinging your perfectly-behaved daughter or son while singing the songs your mother sang to you.Seriously, you need to lower your expectations because it’s more likely that baby is going to scream bloody murder when you try to get s/he to sleep. And you’re going to have to learn some really mean wrestling moves in order to commandeer a swing at the park from another mom who’s had more practice than you.
