Babies: 0 - 3 Months

A game: You know you're a parent to a newborn when...

I need to let off some steam from this growth spurt... so here, I made this game, finish the sentence...

"You know you are a parent to a newborn when..."

...You hope to get the cart with the wobbly wheel in stores to put little one/keep little one asleep.

  • You get a strange sense of satisfaction when sucking the snot out of your LO's congested nose.
  • You curse at the cars driving by your house in pure fear they will wake your sleeping baby, after two hours of trying to get them to sleep out of your arms finally being successful.

    This is awesome.

    When you get legit angry at the phone ringing/cat meowing/person knocking at your door because it's waking the baby. Not cool, noisies! Not cool.

  • ...while buying a new purse you ask yourself, "can I fit diapers, wipes, baby clothes, a burp cloth, and a pacifier in there along with everything else?" And then designate one whole side of that purse to said items.

    it takes an hour to do something that used to take 15 mins (i.e. leaving the house)

    Yes!!! LO always wants to eat when we have to leave to go somewhere so that adds to the whole packing up and getting out of the house process. Although, I am proud to say I am getting it down pat.

    I agree with the burping encouragement post. I praise LO after each burp. Apparently it sounds like I'm praising a dog for a job well done at something. I'm going to have to work on that. Lol

    You're late for work because little one decided she had to poo right before it's time to leave in the morning.  And poo she did...all over herself and her boppy...and all over mommy when she picked her up to change her.  Welcome to my morning (I don't go back to work until tomorrow but if it were today I'd have been late for sure!).

  • You wait in 10x's longer check out line at the store because you dont want to go in the same line as the lady who is coughing her head off!

  • You're in bed before 8 because the LO is sleeping too...every night.

     

  • ...when all you post on Facebook now are pics of LO!
  • ..you check the color of the snot you sucked out of your congested babies nose to make sure it's clear!
