Today I want to introduce to you-Emily from Then Along Came The Boy. Her little boy is so adorable!! You can visit Emily’s blog by clicking the picture below.
So, when I saw that Sarah was looking for guest posters, I thought that would be fun…I’ve never done anything like this before.
I’ve been a mother for 14 months now, and aren’t kids amazing? I mean, do you realize how much the learn and grow within that first year alone. It’s INSANE! I felt like such a fish out of water anytime I had to do a ‘first’ with the boy. I was so nervous and confused I had no idea what was happening and kept wondering ‘how the heck am I suppose to do this?’ or ‘how am I suppose to know what to do?’ Seriously, fish out of water. I had so many questions, so many worries (I’m a worry wart to begin with, so that doesn’t help) I didn’t know how I was going to do this. I started referencing books, and thought I wasn’t ever going figure this out!
Once I started to calm down and realize I’m gonna have to figure this out one way or another, I tried to then go with the flow. Eventually things started to make sense. So I’m here to say, if you are presented with new firsts and new challenges, take a step back, breath and stop for a minute before you act. My husband calls me the queen of rash decision making, because it’s true, I’m the first to not think things through and just say ‘no’ or not even consider what he is trying to tell me. So I constantly have to tell myself to take a deep breath and step back before acting.
