Some things I'd forgotten

Before D, the last time I'd birthed a baby was almost 4 years ago. The time has traveled by in a swift blink and memories have faded.

Things that I'd forgotten since I last had a baby:

  • Babies prefer to poop in a freshly changed diaper.
  • Little butts make explosive poop sounds.
  • It's impossible to dry off after a shower because you leak milk all over yourself.
  • The idea of weaning off pain medication is somewhat scary.
  • Just when you think you're done bleeding, you start again.
  • You spend a lot of time with another human attached to your boob. And it's not your husband.

Ha ha - I also forgot how loud the fecal explosion is from tiny little butts, too! I must be too accustomed to the normal 4-year old farts.

Them's some words I never thought I say out loud.

It's amazing how fast you get your memory refreshed! I hope each day is getting better for all of you!

Isn't that the truth.

When chasing after The Boss (why is it she always has to use the potty while I'm feeding her brother?!?!) I sometimes have to walk around with the baby hanging on my boob by suction alone. Mothers do not have enough hands for more than one child.

Just remember this: Your job today is to nurse your baby.... that's all you have to do. And... figure out something to do with the other two at the same time!

Laughing, remembering, and getting a little teary-eyed remembering those days.

You crack me up--no it's not your husband. And the husband tends to avoid them when they're like spontaneous fire hoses of milk.

I had forgotten about how loud little babies are - my husband and I used to joke it was like living in a frathouse with all the burping and farting!

Ah, man, I hope you are getting some sleep.

This is why I was hoping to have another child sooner rather than later! Too funny.

It's easy to forget all the things that go along with having a newborn.
Great list!
