No Longer a Rookie
I posted about the Kid’s recent adventure to Carter’s well not only did he have an interesting trip but so did we and realized where we were about a year ago.
Upon entering there was a family there that was shopping for clothes that for their 3 month old. They were simply amazed by the Kid watching him walk around and how happy he was. They were asking questions…
When did he start to walk? (Answer 9 months)
When did he start to crawl? (Answer 2 weeks before walking)
When did he start to roll over? (Answer… shoot I better as Hot Mama because I can’t remember)
They also asked us what size clothing he was in because they were shopping a year in advance to take advantage of the 50% storewide sale. We told them he is still in 12 month clothing but at one point he was up to 18 months but backed off as soon as he started walking.
After some thinking, (because we all know it takes me alittle bit to process everything) I realized, they will never really know what size he is going to be wearing in a year. Ah Rookies!!!
I remember being in that same boat. We had an advantage since Hot Mama’s sister was already mom of two and we were able to ask her questions. Without her though, we wouldn’t be the parents we are today because we would have bought his clothes a year in advance and then realized that he doesn’t fit into them when the time comes.
My question to you is where do you go to get advice on parenting if you don’t know anything? Books? Other Parents? Classes? The Internet? My blog? HAHA!
