So... There are so many unknowns with parenting. And as much as I read and researched and wondered before Sophie was born, there are a million things I don't know or unsure about.. Suddenly my Google history has taken an abrupt and curious turn..

Here's what I mean.

Haha, well yep, you get the point. Clearly I miss my sleep.
What about you? Are you neurotic also? Whats the oddest thing you have Googled for your babe?


  1. Hahaha! This is so funny! I am so glad I am not the only one who has googled about dribble! One of my more recent searches have been "8 weeks olds, spit bubbles", "why won't my baby nap" and "armpit itch breastfeeding"

    Ah man, how life changes....

    1. Hahahahaha! I get itchy skin with breast feeding too! It drives me nuts - I am glad I am not the only one!!

  2. Oh my god this is so funny. Hysterical actually. I have googled so many of the same things! Sometimes with each kid as if they are my first.

    1. Haha I am glad such a seasoned Mama like you still does - I am glad Im not just a total noob lol
