The truth to the matter is that we lived 5 minutes away. But who knew what was out there. How was I supposed to protect this tiny baby from everything in the world?
I read lots of books. So many that every thing made me super paranoid all of the sudden every little rash or anything out of the ordinary could be something serious. I spent a lot of time calling the Dr. and stressing
I have three kid’s now and while I am far from being a seasoned pro I react quite differently to the same situations. no longer am I so paranoid about my toddler eating something that barely fell on the floor. Every sneeze and sniffle doesn’t require a trip to the Dr’s office. I try not to read baby books cover to cover I try and to just look up the information that I need to know. I definitely try to google things less. because google can make anyone super paranoid about anything!
I am glad that through experiences we can learn and feel more comfortable being parents. I also love how much wonderful information we can get from others to help us out when we are ready to tear all our hair out.
But don’t ask me if I am ready for the teenage years. You would get a resounding NO WAY for that one!
How have you changed as a parent throughout the years?
