When I found out that my husband and I were expecting our first little one, I couldn’t have been more excited! Having the need for control that I do (anyone else??) I immediately went into prepare mode. My husband and I spent hours perfecting the nursery in our home, filling it with all the essentials and more. My husband graciously agreed to attend every class I could find from Lamaze, to Caring for a Newborn, to infant CPR. Anything to give me the false illusion of control, I took it. We were going to be prepared and things were going to go to plan.
But nothing could have prepared me for what was to come.
