Ok people...I realize that "I have NO idea" what I'm in store for. I realize that lots of you have done this before. I realize that it will be harder (and better) than I have ever, ever imagined. But, could you please refrain from telling me, "you have no idea" or sarcastically, "just wait?" It just doesn't come across nicely. And when I tell you that I know how to do certain things (ie: change diapers, give baths, and feed a baby) please don't laugh at me. And when I tell you that I nannied for 2 under 18 months (Yes..2 under 16 months) please don't dismiss the practice as inapplicable. Practice is practice is practice. I am feeling unprepared enough as it is and don't need this right now. I need encouragement and pats on the back, not laughs and "you have no idea." Thanks.
and ps: "You have no idea" is probably my least favorite phrase in the English language.
