  1. Yes exactly what it like! Except, I sat in the backseat, which I stayed the whole first year our son was in the rear facing car seat. Feel free to make fun of me and my husband. Lord knows that all the people in cars that ever saw us did!! Lol!

      Priceless! If I wasn’t so ill leaving the hospital from the anesthesia, I probably would have done the same!

  2. I remember this feeling!! You almost can’t believe they are letting you leave without any supervision. I had a similar emotion when my Mother left (she came for 3 weeks) after my first child. I thought “no way… I can’t do this!”

      Exactly! And I made my mom stay with me the first time I did anything. We have great pix of us bathing my son in the sink. I was so afraid he’d slip out of my hands and crash on the floor!

  3. “You can’t leave me alone with this baby!” –1st baby
    “You can’t leave me alone with a baby and another kid!” –2nd baby
    “You can’t leave me alone w/THREE KIDS!” –3rd baby
    You think it’s going to get easier, but let’s not find out. I’m done at 3!

      And that is why I had a panic attack when my first nanny quit after a few weeks. “I’m going [hyperventilating!!!] to be [hyperventilating] alone [more hyperventilating] with the baby????”
      I was so terrified of being alone with the baby, I worked at my sister’s house till I found a replacement nanny. Who in hindsight was really there to babysit me. ;)
