What is the biggest surprise you’ve had since becoming a new parent? When we posed this question to our Beaba Facebook page followers, the results were entertaining, sweet, and a little messy to say the least. But we have a feeling these moms wouldn’t have it any other way.
The More the Merrier
A lot of our followers noted that they were surprised with not one but two little bundles of joy! A great surprise, if we do say so ourselves. (Even if it means buying two of everything!)
By far, the biggest (and smelliest) trend we noticed in our comments section had to do with a topic only a parent could understand. This just proves the common idiom, “There’s no love greater than a mother’s love,” to be true! Proceed with caution:
Sleep: What’s That?
Apparently, a mother’s love can not only get you through some smelly and less than glamorous situations, but it can also give you another superpower: the ability to get by on no sleep! We get the feeling that all of these moms are completely happy with that, though. After all, the payoff is more quality time with the little one.
Our Facebook commenters reinforced the expression that people truly are like snowflakes– each one is unique.
Hang in there, new parents! Worrying about your little one comes hand in hand with that natural parental instinct (and, of course, love).
The Power of Love
Our comments section was full of heartwarming posts about the most rewarding aspect of being a new parent: the love you immediately have for your child. It catches you by surprise and makes life completely different for the better.
Feel free to chime in, new parents! What are some of the biggest surprises you’ve faced after having your kids? Do any of your experiences top the ones on this list? We’d love to hear from you.
