I’m back! Not that I went anywhere but I did take a little break from writing. Well I am 11 lbs heavier (thanks ice cream and hot wings!) and I am okay with that right now. I have a lot to say but I won’t say it all.
calvin jon (c.j) was born April 25th. He’s healthy, long and super chill.
I am now a mom! I didn’t like it (being a mom) at first because of all the expectations and feelings (hormones) I was going through. But now, it’s okay. I haven’t been called mom by c.j. so i guess it hasn’t really C L I C K E D. I think the first time I hear it from his mouth I will probably smile/grin.
So How’s being a mom?
The one question I probably hate the most right now. I’ve only been asked that like 20 or 30 times from family, friends and acquaintances. I’m not sure why I hate that question but I do.
I don’t like a lot of the questions people ask when you’re pregnant or when you’re a new mom. Here are my top 10 /hated/ questions & statements about being pregnant and a new mom:
- So How’s being a mom?/How’s motherhood?
- Did you have a c-section or deliver vaginally?
- How much did he weigh?
- How long was he when he was born?
- Geez, He’s so long. Is your husband tall?
- Aw, she is so cute!/Que bonita!
- Are you gonna take him to church?
- Oh Wow! He looks nothing like Josh!
- Do you breastfeed?
- Can you drink/eat that while you’re breastfeeding?
So to answer all of these questions at once I must tell you… the next time you are about to have a conversation with a pregnant lady or new mom think about this…
What does it matter to you? Why do you need to know these things?
If it’s small talk or just a common question you’ve heard asked before then just say hi and give her a compliment. Unless you really really really want to know. Although, everyone is different and maybe some mom’s like those type of questions or statements… All I know is I do not like them and you will know that after you ask.
That’s about all I have to say tonight. I would like to write at least once a week but we will see. I don’t want to make any promises I can’t keep.
