I already know I am going to be one of THOSE mammas. . . .what do I mean by that? I mean one of those Mammas who knows more than she should about how young children develop and learn. I already have all of these notions about what is and is not appropriate because of my education and line of work. This is a good thing in some ways. I know I will be VERY prepared for pregnancy and caring for a child of my own. Of course, knowing and doing are two very different things. . . . It's a bad thing because I will become one of those Mammas who are a little too concerned about doing EVERY THING right.
I know I need to let go of this right now. I will not do everything right. There will be lots of learning happening and I will likely make many, many child rearing mistakes. No one is perfect and, as the hubby says, "perfection is BORING. . ." Too bad my husband married a "type a" sort of gal who tends to try and over acheive on just about everything. . . LOL.
Are any of you one of THOSE Mammas? If so, were you always that way?
