This is just the beginning

It’s hard for me to pick out the worst piece of parenting advice. It’s kind of not fair to do that. I’ve let go so much of the stuff from my childhood that was kind of weird and difficult to get through. There was a moment when I was a teenage girl, and I had just gotten my heart broken. I was sobbing and I had my head on my mom’s lap. She was trying to comfort me and said, “You don’t understand, this is just the beginning.” That was not something I needed to hear at that time!

It’s hard to tell a new mom to not worry

The umbilical stump is really not that big of a deal. With my first baby, I was freaked out that it was some sort of a portal, so if there was an infection it would go right in. We would dangle the child over the sink and wash that way so we wouldn’t get it wet. I don’t know if anyone else goes through this — maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m nuts. It’s hard to tell a new mom to not worry. When my kids were born, I watched them breathe. It’s part of a mom’s job to worry.

I have my dark side

Jeckyll and Hyde is pretty accurate. I have my ups and downs. June Cleaver/Roseanne Barr is another one that would be perfect for me. If you ask my kids, they would probably say something nice, which I try to be, but I have my dark side.

Girls are a hundred times easier

I can tell you with confidence that after 11 years of raising both girls and a boy, girls are a hundred times easier. They’re just safer. They don’t endanger their lives. I don’t have to worry about what they’re breaking. He’s crazy. The girls color and read. They fight sometimes, but I don’t care about that. I just want them to live.
