Things I Never Thought I'd Google Before Becoming a Mom: Newborn Edition

Funny mom blog

Having grown up in an era of usernames, passwords, and instant everything, it's probably no surprise to you, dear reader, that I have a habit of googling anything and everything at all times, without hesitation. Sure, there are times when I want to "challenge myself" to figure out the indecipherable words to a song (don't even get me started-- my friends know I am NOTORIOUS for mishearing lyrics-- alas, that's another post for another day), but really, why wait?

As soon as google kicked Ask Jeeves to the corner, google became my go-to. I consider google more of a well-read friend than a search engine. Creepy? Probably. Exactly what google wants me to think? Definitely. Am I sorry? Not even a little bit.

So, once pregnancy rolled around, the (proverbial) keys of my way-too-smartphone became worn out asking questions like, "will my belly button ever be the same?" (spoiler alert: no, it won't) and, "why didn't they didn't tell me about [insert ridiculous pregnancy symptom here]!?!?". But truly, nothing could've prepared me for what I would google once my boys arrived. There are SO MANY THINGS that need answers, y'all. Here is a sampling:
