Surprising Mommy Milestones

You know you're truly a mother when...


You can fill a baby book with all the momentous firsts in your child's inaugural year: First smile. First words. First steps. But for every milestone our babies are preprogrammed to hit, there are just as many we go through in our transformation into parents. Mother aren't born, you know. We're made. And we're made through a series of close calls, near misses, and stomach-churning scares, all-nighters, and radical changes in outlook. It's only after a few years of this that we can stand up, brush the snot off our pants with our bare hands, and call ourselves moms. You've no doubt been so busy since becoming a mother that you haven't noticed how many of these milestones you've already hit. Allow us to help.
