From the moment I got pregnant to now to tomorrow and the day after that everyone is full of advice. Whether it is advice for being pregnant or parenting people offer their advice. During all of these times I have leaned on my friends a lot. It's nice to have people that are in the same stage of life as I am. Anyway, when I was pregnant people were saying "oh just wait, you won't get any sleep after your baby is born". Now that we are through the "no sleep" stage, it's "oh just wait, teething is terrible." Next it's, the terrible two's and so on. We have even had people warn us about teenage years. Dan and I take it with a grain of salt and try to just smile. We made it through the newborn phase, we have started the teething stage and there are many more stages to come but we will deal with them as they come. Why do people have to be so negative? Every stage is a short period of time in the grand scheme of things. What good will it do for me to worry about Charlotte's teenage years now? Right now we will enjoy our little munchkin and all her stages of life.
