Paranoid Moms Anonymous?
Before I had Lyla I knew I would be the coolest mom. I wouldn't worry about germs, I wouldn't care when she was crying, and I definitely wouldn't freak out about the small things...then she was born. I was immediately the paranoid weirdo that I couldn't stand. I mean I practically needed a brown paper bag any time someone held her. If they coughed around her? Forget about it. I pretty much have her pediatrician on speed dial and take her in monthly, at the slightest sign of a runny nose or cough. I am everything I despise. So, needless to say we were at the doctor yesterday because L has been messing with her ear and I was sure she had an ear infection. Turns out it was nothing. Weird. This whole "motherhood" thing has sure thrown me for a loop. Can't wait 'til she has her first break up. It totally won't phase me at all.
