It is amazing how the “solitude” of having a baby can make so many thoughts race through my mind.

I decided I would share some of these random thoughts.

Perhaps they’re not so random. Maybe you’ve thought some of these things too?

Check out these random thoughts after having the second baby! #parenting Click To Tweet

1 – My 3 1/2 year old daughter suddenly looks like a giant.

2 – It’s amazing how a simple shower can feel like a day at the spa.

3 – All this baby ever does is eat and poop.

4 – Speaking of poop, when will my conversations with my husband NOT revolve around the colour and consistency of the baby’s poop?

5 – Holy cleavage Batman!

6 – I used to think there’s nothing more peaceful than a sleeping baby. Wrong. There’s nothing more peaceful than a sleeping baby and a sleeping preschooler.

7 – How much longer will I have to pee with a peri-bottle?

8 – I hate the postpartum chill. How come no one told me about that before I had children?

9 – It’s amazing how having a baby can make you feel completely incompetent.

10 – Why do babies smell so good?

11 – Where do the days go?

12 – Speaking of the passage of time… why are the days so short and the nights so long?

13 – And speaking of nights, will I ever get to sleep for more than three hours?

14 – I wonder what’s happening in the world right now.

15 – My bedroom feels like a prison.

16 – If I do one more sudoku puzzle, I think my head will explode. Actually, maybe I can do just one more.

17 – Do telemarketers have nap radar? Every time I try to nap someone is calling to sell me something.

18 – I love the way my baby curls up against my chest and falls asleep.

19 – It feels so amazing to wear real clothing. Why don’t I get out of my pajamas more often?

20 – I can’t stop eating. I graze all day long!

21 – I wonder when I’ll be able to sit on a chair without my donut pillow?

22 – I think google was created for postpartum mothers.

23 – I thought I knew how to breastfeed and everyone told me that it’s like riding a bicycle. This baby has taught me that it’s not at all like riding a bicycle. This time it feels like I’m learning how to drive a car that’s revving to go while I’m just trying to figure out how to put the car into gear.

24 – Speaking of breastfeeding, I can’t wait for breastfeeding to be established and for the baby to have more of a predictable schedule. When that day comes, I will finally have that long-awaited glass of wine.

25 – I love having this little person in my life. I look forward to watching her become who she is meant to be.

Wow! That was a lot of random thoughts hey?! Could you identify with any of these?!
