While everyone writes about the vacations they had, or the miserable days at work or heartbreak, all I can think of writing now, is how sleepy I am, post partum.
Things you must know if you want to have a baby.
1. Babies Cry. When they are hugry, when they are uncomfortable, when they are sleepy, when they are awake, Babies Cry. Always.
2. Babies need to be fed. Once in 2 hours, doesnt matter whether you are awake or asleep. they need to be fed, and if they are not, they cry. BABIES CRY
3. Babies cannot flush. One must change diapers, once in everyn 15 mins, if one is lucky, else once every 10 mins. Else, BABIES CRY
4. Babies decide that crying, feeding and pooing are the most interesting things to do, and decide to do it in an unending loop which lasts 15 mins. So its a constant cry, feed, poo, cry, feed poo cycle, like a circular reference or a GOTO or an endless if then else loop.
And, did I tell you? Babies cry. Omygosh, they cry.
And, finally, the last and the most important thing to know when you are having a baby ....
somewhere in that endless loop, and that psuedo crying and feeding and pooing, you get a gurgle and a smile for your exhausting efforts. And its all worth it.
that is what you need to know when you are having a baby.
PS - if there are any readers out there, I plan to begin a mommy blog in a few days, waddaya think? good idea?
