Yesterday seemed to be a fairly horrible day for a lot of people, me included. So lets turn toward the light a bit, and share:
What is the most helpful thing you encountered (that someone said to you, or that you read, or that someone did) when you'd been a parent for about a month? (I feel like that's when it really sets in for most of us.)
For me, it was two things:
1. My mom was happy to talk to me every single time I called her (which was 3-4 times a day at that point) and always told me I was doing a good job.
2. My son started smiling, really early, and it was the positive feedback that kept me going.
Now you, please.
(Actual Q&A tomorrow if I make it through today!)
