Adrienne Explains Her Babysitting Panic
Lately I have become more of a homebody. The things I enjoy doing are babysitting my niece and stuff like that. I just think it has to be so rewarding to be a mother. It's a lot of sacrifice but the reward is great.
Even though this was the first time I was alone with Jet, it was kind of shocking because I thought it was going to be easier than it actually was. But that day, I had no idea… I always thought a baby's cry wouldn't affect me, that I would just be, "Alright, just cry." That it actually wouldn't affect me. But it made me so sad that there was something wrong with her and I couldn't soothe her, it made me panic.
Since then I've learned little tricks and I think it's actually easier for the mom when they get in swing of things. Jet's only four months old, so she doesn't do much, she sleeps, she gets fed, she has her diaper changed. But I sing to her and her new favorite game is peek-a-boo and she's actually started teething so I'm all about buying her really cool teething rings and that sort of thing.
Being an aunt has absolutely prepared me for having kids. I never had to change a diaper before. I've learned so much. I was totally clueless before. Now, I feel prepared.
