Reinforcements, STAT!

I posted my Top Ten Tips Families Expecting Baby #2 over at 5 Minutes for Parenting this morning, and the first few comments have left me feeling like a bit of a pansy! I still stand behind my recommendations though. Y'all go check them out.

  1. Thank you - I'm heading right over!

  2. Read it. Loved it. Fail to understand perspective of some commenters, but that's ok, I guess...

    I "get" what you are saying.

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am 30 weeks along with baby #2 and very much enjoyed reading your ten tid bits. Feel free to add more to your list :)

  4. I read it yesterday and was going to comment but was having one of those days when I don't think it would have come across correctly. I totally understood where you were coming from and love your advice!

  5. I loved it - we are TTC and that's one of my biggest worries. I loved your sense of humor AND your tips! Don't let people who think they are Supermom get you down. No one is really Supermom :)

  6. I feel your pain. I had a HARD time with the first one, so I can only imagine the transition to two. I appreciate the advice AND I understand how it feels for other Moms to say "what?? That wasn't hard!!!"

    Thanks for the truth, and thanks for the post - I'm going to hold onto it, because I'm SURE that it will apply to me!!!

  7. No you are not a pansy. We have a 2yr old and a now 4 month old. And I have felt EXACTLY the way you apparently do!

    Except trade out the stale croutons for an entire ritz cracker sleeve. THEN we are nearly identical.
