This is to funny (and true). I just had to post this incase anyone hasn't read it....
I think it goes without saying that it takes a very special person to be a Mother. Being a parent changes everything. But being a parent also changes with each baby. Here are some of the ways having a second and third child is different from having the first.
1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your doctorconfirms your pregnancy.
2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.
3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.
1st baby: You pre-wash your newborn’s clothes, color-coordinate them,and fold them neatly in the baby’s little bureau.
2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothesare clean and discard only the ones with the darkest stains.
3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can’t they?
1st baby: At the first sign of distress--a whimper, a frown--you pickup the baby.
2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake yourfirstborn.
3rd baby: You teach your 3-year-old how to rewind the mechanical swing.
1st baby: You change your baby’s diapers every hour, whether they need it or not.
2nd baby: You change their diaper every 2 to 3 hours, if needed.
3rd baby: You try to change their diaper before others start tocomplain about the smell or you see it sagging to their knees.
1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.
2nd baby: You spend a bit of every day watching to be sure your olderchild isn’t squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.
3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children.
