Did you, new mom of one, just exit the building with your — gasp — baby? Did you, mom of plus two, venture out into the world with your big kids and your newborn? EEK!
You, mother of a new baby, are venturing out into public without your partner by your side. Nope, it’s just you and the kiddo . . . or kiddos, hoping and praying that none of you has a breakdown, especially you. Oh, sure, we moms say we don’t want the baby to cry, but really, it’s more of a crime if we cry in public than if the baby does. People understand a tiny newborn’s need to wail but not an adult capable of pulling her stuff together. So when you, mom, leave the house with that infant seat carrier, wearing your newborn baby, or pushing that sweet thing in a stroller, you are, indeed, a superhero!
