Oh the things that no one tells you about being a mom! Of course I read tons of books, but somehow they all managed to leave out or put little importance on the most useful advice. A support system is probably the number one “tool” a new mom needs. I am very lucky to have plenty of friends and family willing to be advice givers, listening ears, and backup baby sitters. So never be afraid to ask for help and don’t lose touch with those that are willing to be there for you. A lot of our old friends disappeared, after our lo was born and a whole new set of friends appeared. So here’s to life in my thirties, and yep even with this decades own new challenges, its tons better than I ever could have hoped for.
