Things I Know About First Time Mothering

A friend of mine shared this fantastic video on Facebook, and it got me thinking about things I know about motherhood. Take a look:

When you are expecting your first baby, there are so many things that go through your mind. What will labour be like, what will the baby look like, how will we cope with this, or that, how much sleep deprivation will we have? That first child comes and grows in a whirlwind. Before you know it they’re starting school, reading, speaking in full sentences, copying everything you say and learning everything they see and hear.

I know exactly what my sign would say. Actually, I’d have to have two signs.

and

What would you tell your pregnant-for-the-first-time self?
