I was under the impression that I would receive some kind of instruction book when I checked out of the hospital with our new little bundle of joy.
I expected the book of parenting directions to incorporate sections about childrearing and a glossery of FAQs that I would field as a mother. It was supposed to include age appropriate answers to questions like: Where do babies come from? Why do I have to eat broccoli? How do I know if this boy likes me? How do I do laundry?
Shockingly, there is no Mom Manual (either that or mine was lost in the mail). We all just have to figure this out as we go along.
So, cheers to all of the Mothers. Navigating parenthood is tough stuff, so I think that Mom deserves a litle treat. Check out my favorite gift ideas on my Mother's Day Gift Ideas board.
