I’m not quite sure what happened between my first (my daughter who just turned two years old) and my second (my one-month-old son). Things were manageable when I was pregnant. I could put my daughter to bed and pick her up with no wailing baby in my arms. I didn’t have to repeatedly ask if she had washed her hands because she wanted to make sure “baby real” by poking him in the eye. (Oh, and the inevitable eye infection your newborn will get from your toddler’s filthy fingers can be treated with eye drops.) I forgot how to breastfeed, forgot that you had to burp a newborn, and really forgot how little sleep they let you have. So, I’ve taken the liberty to jot a few of these things down, you know… before I forget.
