For most of us, prior to giving birth the only previous experience we’ve had with babies is when we watched the occasional diaper commercial. Sure the moms in those commercials were cutely frazzled in their spunky SAHM sportswear. But they glowed happily as they chased that rosy moppet around the brightly colored (and spotlessly clean!) carpet and I was sure this was the future waiting for me. Nothing – I mean NOTHING – had prepared me to handle this tiny wrinkled pink creature who cried. A lot.
