Last night we had another young couple over who have a 9 month old little boy. He is the cutest thing ever and it was nice to be around another family who has been there done that. It's interesting to hear their take on being parents along with the struggles and challenges that accompany it. Sometimes when you think of a baby or the pending arrival, it's easier to focus on that sweet baby smell, the quiet moments of breastfeeding and the walks in the stroller. Sometimes it's easy to not think that in just a few weeks Phillip and I won't have enough time for each other, that I might not have a moment to shower in peace and SLEEP. Will we ever have that again?!
That was a big topic of discussion last night. Sleep deprivation. I know every baby is different but this family in particular struggles with that. Not this family - the one we had over last night. So the question is for all of you mamas out there... How do or did you deal with the struggles that come along with having a baby?
