There are a ton of blog posts out there that gently (and not so gently) offer advice to moms of newborns. We like this one from Liz because she hacks through the bullshit and offers some straight-forward down to earth advice for the masses. (And seriously, baby smiles FTW!)
This guest post from Rhiannon reminded me of how intensely tired I was when my first son was born. I once knocked over an entire bag of kibble for the cats because I couldn’t muster the energy to scoop it into their bowls.
When I think about my personality before I had kids I wonder how I kept myself alive, let alone thought I could sustain a tiny life. Brianna’s guest post discusses the ways we’re forced to change after we have kids. (I still think moms should regularly receive standing ovations…)
