Needless Worries

I had a lot of worries before little S was here that turned out to be needless. I continue to have plenty of worries, but these (at least) have been solved.

1. What if the baby doesn't like me - this one was so stupid it's almost funny. Of course he likes me, he's heard my voice for 9 months and knows what I smell like. I'm very familiar to him and no one else is.

2. What if I don't like the baby - also, a pretty stupid concern. I'd say from the moment I met him he was the most important thing in the world to me. 

3. What if I don't know what to do - this isn't totally needless. I don't know what to do, but it's not quite as scary yet as I envisioned and you and the baby can kind of figure things out together. 

4. Delivery will be scary - again, not totally needless, it was, in a way, but in a more exact way it was worth it.

This will not happen until he's a teenager.
