I'll Be Just Like Mum
I wouldn't call myself studious. I've never been a particularly dedicated student...but in the last 9 months I have studied my little butt off to prepare for my upcoming bundle of joy. I have read more books about natural childbirth, breastfeeding, baby essentials, child psychology, and parenting styles than I have read in all my years at school. All of the information has made me feel more in control of this completely foreign experience...but here is the clincher- nothing really turns out how I plan it. So...although I know exactly what happens to a body when its given pitocin and can recite the reasoning behind attachment parenting vs. Babywise parenting- it doesn't really matter. I will never feel prepared enough and I will probably become the same kind of mother that I had. Its just that simple.
