Things I've Learned Since Becoming a Mother

  1. If travelling with your entire family, ALWAYS get the travel insurance.

  2. Only take your toddler to playgrounds that are parent friendly; following your child up and down climbing structures while hunched over because they're designed for someone who is only two feet tall is just not fun.

  3. A mother's gut is always right (no matter what daddy thinks).

  4. The whole "nap when baby naps" suggestion doesn't work.

  5. Always plan to leave the house at least 15 minutes earlier than you think you need to leave the house.

  6. Don't plan on ever being on time again. Ever.

  7. Your child is not like everybody else's. (No matter what they think.)

  8. There can't possibly be any feeling better in this world than an unsolicited hug from your child.
