There is no training for some things. You can read the books and watch the other people and still not know what you’re doing when it’s actually your turn. Parenting is absolutely one of those things. It is almost expected that we dive in and have to learn everything, but oh how I hate to flounder.
I have always preferred to be good at something before I have to do it publicly, but I think this is something we spend our whole lives learning. And in a way, I really hate that. I’d rather KNOW how to make the baby sleep and keep him fat and happy and be sure that he’s doing everything he should, but I don’t.
I can only dive in and do and pray that God will keep track of the details and help me swim.
