All Moms Worry?

All moms worry, right? My current list of (irrational?) worries:

  • How will I ever potty train Nora when she cries whenever I mention it?
  • Why does Nora already have two moles on her face? Can kids even get moles? Have I already ruined her skin with the sun?
  • Are Nora’s baby teeth already rotting from all the Pediasure she consumes? Why does she hate brushing her teeth?
  • Is Nora the only two year-old who still cries for a bottle?
  • Is Nadia not talking or crawling because I don’t give her enough attention?
  • Does Nora cling to me because I don’t expose her to other children enough?
  • What if I don’t find an awesome sitter for the school year?
  • Should I already be researching gestational carriers?
  • Does Nora watch too much TV and/or play with her iPad too much?
  • Should Nora be dressing herself by now?
  • Do I spend too much time on my phone when the girls are awake?
  • How can I keep this house better organized and clean?

  1. Oh girl yea, every mom worries about a list of things a mile long. Some rational, some irrational. Try to figure out what’s worth worrying about, what you can do something about, and what not worth worrying about. As for gestational carriers 1. Are you ready to have another baby?! 2. If this is something you are really thinking about, I work for Heartland Surrogacy now. I mostly do marketing and social media and blogging But I can answer some questions!

  2. I’m gonna respond to just three of your worries by sharing my experience with a 4-year-old girl:

    How will I ever potty train Nora when she cries whenever I mention it? My best advice here is to let her lead the way on this. I know that can be really hard to do, but honestly, our potty training experience was really not stressful because we let her decide things on her own time. :

    Does Nora cling to me because I don’t expose her to other children enough? Nope. My daughter goes to school/daycare 4-5 days a week and is very social, but still, from time-to-time is extremely clingy. Like right now. Drop offs are horrible, and if I tell her I am not going to be home for an evening or something she freaks out. But I know it will eventually pass…

    Should Nora be dressing herself by now? My just 4-year-old has been able to take off/put on her underwear and bottoms for a while now, but still struggles with tops, most taking them off. I struggle because most of the time it is just faster/easier for me to do it so I don’t often give her the opportunity.

    And no, you aren’t the only mom who has a huge list of worries — I have or have had all of these and more!

    1. Thank you!!

      I’ve been a bit more relaxed with the potty training lately, as it certainly does take the stress off me. But then I wonder… How old will she be when she finally leads the way? And what if that is too old to still be in diapers??
