As a soon-to-be-mom, I promise to:
*Not become a mommy blogger. Please take me aside and give me a good punching if I do such a thing. My blog would rather die than be put out to mommy blogger pasture, so please don’t let it devolve down that road. That said, I don’t consider pregnancy blogging to be the same as mommy blogging, so continue reading here at your own risk.
*Never, EVER use the phrase, “Just wait till you have kids. Then you’ll understand.” There are fewer words more obnoxious than these, and I’ve wanted to punch many people for saying them to me. Especially during the period when we were trying to get pregnant. The words made me truly violent on the inside.
*Be conscientious of any annoyance or discomfort my child’s crying or whining may be to others. That’s not to say that there won’t be training involved in which the annoyances are necessary. I’m sure I’ll forget about this by the end of the first week as a mom, and it’s okay for you to hate me and judge me for it.
*Not talk exclusively of my kid. I know I was my own person before the baby, and I will try to maintain at least a little bit of myself. Also, if I talk exclusively of the kid, how will people know how the animals are doing?
*Try to blog at least as much as I do now. Hahahaha.
Any other promises you’d like me to make?
