Being a parent is way harder than I ever expected. I don’t know what I expected, exactly, but it wasn’t this.
I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to learn what I needed/need to know.
All I knew, at the time, was that Edward and Bella were in love and about to have a baby and ohmygosh I’M IN LOVE and I’M ABOUT TO HAVE A BABY! (Yes, I was reading Twilight when I was pregnant with my first. I have no regrets about this fact.)
