Parenthood Changes Everything...(No hard Feelings Please...)




Yes, parenthood changes everything. But parenthood also changes with
each baby. Here, some of the ways having a second and third child
differs from having your first:

Your Clothes
-1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB/GYN
confirms your pregnancy.
-2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.
-3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.

The Baby's Name
-1st baby: You pour over baby-name books and practice pronouncing and
writing combinations of all your favorites.
-2nd baby: Someone has to name his or her kid after your great-aunt
Mavis, right? It might as well be you.
-3rd baby: You open a name book, close your eyes, and see where your
finger lands.

Preparing for the Birth
-1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously.
-2nd baby: You don't bother practicing because you remember that last
time, breathing didn't do a thing.
-3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in your 8th month.

The Layette
-1st baby: You pre-wash your newborn's clothes, color-coordinate them,
and fold them neatly in the baby's little bureau.
-2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and
discard only the ones with the darkest stains.
-3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they?

Worries
-1st baby: At the first sign of distress--a whimper, a frown--you pick
up the baby.
-2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake your
firstborn.
-3rd baby: You teach your 3-year-old how to rewind the mechanical
swing.

Activities
-1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, Baby Swing, and
Baby Story Hour.
-2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics.
-3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry
cleaner.

Going Out
-1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call
home 5 times.
-2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave a
number where you can be reached.
-3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she
sees blood.

At Home
-1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.
-2nd baby: You spend a bit of every day watching to be sure your older
child isn't squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.
-3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the
children.
