Here's What I Regret From My First Year of Motherhood
My baby is going to reach a big milestone this week – her first birthday. That means that she'll no longer be classified as an infant . . . and that I am going to have to give up my title as a "new mom," a description that's given me more comfort than I ever could have expected. Whenever I was unsure, whenever I second-guessed a decision, I reminded myself that I was still a new mom, learning as I went. Now, after a solid year on duty, I am ready to meet my own developmental milestone, but not without a few regrets about my first year as a parent.
