I mentioned in my Pregnancy v. Parenthood post a couple weeks ago that I know a lot of expecting mothers.
One of them had a baby girl last week and she’s adorable. I know this because exactly 1 week after being born, this little baby had the sweetest newborn photos posted on Facebook. You know, the professional Anne Geddes-type portraits where the newborn fits in a hat or a stocking.
But adorable newborn pictures just confirm I’m a bad mom.
Why? Because one week after having my first born, I did NOT get any newborn pictures taken.
One week after having my son, I’m not sure I had gotten out of my pajamas.
One week after giving birth, I was a hormonal mess who wanted to hack off my breasts and just give them to the baby. (Remember my breastfeeding disaster?)
One week after giving birth….oh, geez, I can’t remember 1 week after giving birth because I was so sleep-deprived!
I should be thankful, as a bad mom, that Facebook was not around when I had my son. And, yes, for those of you wondering, I am the *Experienced* Bad Mom for a reason! I did not rush out and get newborn pictures of my second child either.
I guess my children should consider themselves lucky that I have any pictures of them at all.
