23 Parenting Moments That You"ll Look Back On and Laugh

Via

New parents are hilarious. I can say that because I was a new parent once — and I”m guessing that if you are reading this site, that means you have been as well (or will be at some point soon). One of the best things about our new parent selves is just how clueless we were when it came to the whole baby-raising thing. Technically speaking, we all read the books, but there is a certain bit of know-how that you can”t get until after actually being in the game for some time. My husband and I have spent many a moment saying, “Wow, do you remember when we did XYZ when so-and-so was a baby?” And like everyone, we were just trying our best, but how many of these moments (which come from my very own new parenting playbook, by the way) do you look back on now and have a chuckle?

Admit it: you”ve googled various rashes and spots worried that a deadly disease was forming itself on your babe”s skin in the form of a small blemish.

Things like: What does normal newborn poop look like? Why is my baby drooling? Do babies dream? How come babies don”t have bad breath?

Or better yet, like me, paid extra for the infant tub with the built-in warning system that would tell you if your baby”s bath water was too hot or cold.

Raise your hand if you had a notebook. And you tracked your kiddo”s sleep right down to the minute. And stared at it for hours to figure out the magical formula for getting your baby to sleep more.

No, seriously — I really told myself that I would never feed my baby jarred food. Which turned into, OK only organic jarred food. Which turned into, oh well, these were on sale. Which led to, what the heck, let me just smush up these french fries at a restaurant.Source: Flickr user Frédérique Voisin-Demery

I have hours of video footage (I”m not joking) of my firstborn child possibly, maybe, almost reaching for a toy for the first time. I went back to watch some old videos other day and just laughed.

I”ll never forget the first time my kiddo got a fever (or what I considered to be a fever as a new mom) and had no other symptoms. Obviously I rang the after-hours line at the doctor”s office. Her temp didn”t even break 100, and the pediatrician explained to me to call back if it went higher; otherwise, stop worrying.

You know you marched into the pediatrican”s office with a list of ridiculous questions. “Is it OK if my baby sleeps with this incredibly small and lightweight lovey over his face?” Or, “Can you look at this picture and tell me if his crib looks SIDS safe?”

It”s an exciting time. It is. But looking back you now realize your baby had absolutely no idea what the heck was happening — and that all your childless friends thought you were crazy.

Guilty as charged here. I agonized over the decision over which preschool would be the perfect fit for my firstborn. You know, for the four hours a week she started out at.Source: Flickr user Katie Baxter-Kauf

That first drop-off playdate or birthday party is a tough one. I definitely called the party girl”s mom to talk to her about what the girls would be doing (and then I ended up staying for half of it anyway).
