    Dear Karin & partner,

    I know you are excited to be a mom & you should be, because motherhood is exciting. It’s also hard. And tiring. And thrilling.

    There is a lot to love about pregnancy and motherhood. The shape of your belly as the baby grows larger. How you can’t believe your eyes when you look down and you can see the baby moving in your belly. How you suddenly feel just a tad bit more powerful, a bit more special, because hello – you’re creating life.

    But there is a lot that you won’t know. I’m here to tell you that motherhood is one long mystery, and sometimes you get tired of playing detective. “Why is the baby crying? Is he gassy? Does he need a new diaper? Maybe he’s tired. Maybe he’s just tired of me!”

    There might be days when you want your old life back. You might wonder, “What was the rush?” But don’t go there. There is nothing to do but move forward.

    One thing no one told me was that you might not bond with the baby right away. I sure didn’t. When they handed me my daughter in the hospital, all I felt was fear, like someone handed me the keys to a Jaguar and I still didn’t know how to parallel park.

    The sleep deprivation might get to you. It’s hard to imagine a concept like “no sleep.” We’ve pulled all-nighters, but this is nothing like that.

    Sleeping in two hour blocks is worse than no sleep at all. There were plenty of days where I fell asleep at the 3 a.m. feeding and my husband would come out and see me dozed off on the couch, breast hanging out, baby knocked out on the Boppy, a horrible infomercial about garden tools on the TV. Not a pretty picture.

    But the one thing that is pretty basic, that I think you will handle very well, is that somehow, you figure it out. Somehow the problems get solved, the babies grows and gets larger, you start sleeping again and all is right in the world.

    A lot of new moms freak out because they just don’t know what the hell is going on. Heck, the most common question from a new mom is “WHAT DAY IS IT?” For the first two months of my daughter’s life, I completely missed Tuesdays. It was either Monday or Wednesday. I never remembered Tuesday.

    But don’t freak out. Or, try not to freak out too much. And if no one is telling you this, tell yourself, “I am a good mother. I will figure this out.” Tell your this every day, because there will be plenty of times when you will doubt yourself.

    Enjoy the ride!
