MY BABY Q&A: ON NEW ROUTINES, PARENTING FEARS & BOBKE

ago

One of the things I was most curious about before having our boy was how we were going to fit him into our hectic lifestyle. After stressing about it for way too long, I finally managed to let it go and just hope for the best - which is basically all you can do when it comes to babies. :) So for the final part of my baby Q&A as a new mama (find part I & II right here and here), I'm sharing what it has been like to be a first-time parent, including major routine changes, who our boy resembles most (can you guess?), and my no. 1 irrational parenting fear!

BABY Q&A - ON BEING A PARENT

BIGGEST ROUTINE CHANGE

Literally everything. :) Nothing about our days looks the same; the nights are shorter, the mornings earlier, and everything in between is chaos, haha. But since we were used to an irregular day-to-day structure, it's actually fine. We just try to go with the flow and figure out along the way.

DIVIDING THE PARENTING TASKS

I'd say it's a 50/50 thing (as was our goal), where Marcio mostly takes care of the night shifts, and I do the early mornings, which fits our natural habits the most (because I'm usually up by 6am anyways). And yes, he's excellent at changing diapers (is this even still a thing?).

WHO HE RESEMBLES MOST

Me of course! :) Marcio & I definitely have this thing going on where we get super competitive about which traits our boy got from either one of us, which even extends to our grandparents, who are fully supporting the passing down of their magnificent genes. In any case, he takes after Marcio in that he's very tall for his age (and has big hands & feet!). Other than that, he really is a copy of me as a baby (like, really really).

JUGGLING THAT WORK/LIFE BALANCE

As much as I'm trying not to freak out about getting zero work done on most days, it does occasionally worry me a bit. So far, I haven't found a balanced out work/life thing, but since this technically is the time when a lot of parents have maternity leave, I guess that's totally normal. Ask again in a couple of months! :)

BIGGEST CHALLENGE SO FAR

Apart from the short nights, that's definitely been arranging our days around our little monkey. It can be frustrating to have to cancel a meet-up with friends because he's feeling off, but I know it's better than facing an afternoon of outdoor meltdowns. That can honestly feel a bit limiting.

NO. 1 IRRATIONAL FEAR AS A NEW PARENT

Breaking the kid! Especially in the beginning, when he seemed so small and fragile, I literally had nightmares of dropping him or inflicting some kind of injury. O, and while I was initially also kind of nervous about Bobke's reaction, he's been so incredibly sweet! (after getting over his initial surprise) They really are best buds, it makes me so happy. :)

Hey Sofie, ooh zo leuk artikel!! Ik had net hetzelfde met Amilia, ik was ook zooo bang om haar te laten vallen. Elke keer ik de trap op en af moest met haar ging mijn hart tekeer en had ik echte angsten haha :-) Nu neem ik ze onder arm en loop ik naar boven zelfs haha :-) xxx

Their art is sharpened to plot naïve or emotionless guardians of their cash, and controlling their representatives (particularly wonderful and https://www.assignmentdone.co.uk poorly educated nonnatives) is simply part of the activity.
You have share a good information, it's really amazing post. I am share this post on my page https://www.treatassignmenthelp.co.uk and follow your link. Thanks
There's a fine line, sure. But there's also a logical middle ground. Anyone who wants to know his name should be able to search it. But his name shouldn't be in every news cast either http://bestblackfridaysales2018.com/ . There should be a period of identification, and then a period of stating facts only. You could regulate this with enough time and money.
Extraordinary discourse and It's my happiness to peruse your post and Your article is difficult to accept and most promising of the most recent thing present in business sectors. https://www.topcelebsjackets.com
Nice Q&A writeup! I have two boys (11 & 8) and they have shaken up my life (in a good way)! One thing it has helped me is with my time management. I have become more calendar oriented as opposed to my spontaneous lifestyle pre-parenthood. The work/life balance is definitely a challenge, especially when you have a typical 9-5 that requires you to be somewhere other than home. I became a <a href=" https://www.rcpersonaltrainer.com/">personal trainer in redwood city, ca</a> which helps with the work/life balance, but now my kids are older and don't want anything to do with me =P.
