I remember when I found out that I was pregnant. I was so excited. And scared. I was so excited to have a little bundle of joy that I would get to play with and watch grow up. And then I became scared. I was going to have another persons life in my hands. I was going to be responsible for keeping this baby alive. I was going to be responsible for raising and training this child for when he grew up and went on his own.
I may have only been a mom for 11 months now but in this short amount of time I have come to realize one thing. It is amazing how often common sense comes into play when it comes to being a parent. Which then makes me sad when I think about how little common sense there is left in the world. Like you shouldn't have your baby in Walmart at 11:00 while you do your grocery shopping. Don't take a toddler to a nice restaurant. Make sure your child wears a coat to school when they are sick and it's 30 degrees outside.
See. Common sense.
