Elizabeth Pettie’s Comments

Before we were parents, my husband and I thought a new addition wouldn’t change much. There’d be two of us and only one baby–sure, we’d lose sleep, but we’d pulled all nighters in college. You know where this is going … having a kid changes everything including the family dynamic and one’s individual identity. I wrote these stories while pregnant with my second and remembering the colic-riddled days with my first. Now I have an infant and a toddler. I’ve never been happier or more exhausted.
