What Chris and I Wish People Had Told Us Before We Had a Baby

08.12.2021 — Ashley Tisdale-French

Being parents introduced Chris and me to a side of life that we’d obviously never known before. Jupiter has been the biggest blessing and we love our baby girl so much, and I honestly loved being pregnant. With so many people in our lives being parents or starting families of their own, it’s natural that we heard a lot of outside opinions and thoughts on parenthood. While we heard a lot of things that were helpful, there are still some things we wish people would’ve told us before we had a baby. For example, there’s such an emphasis on how tough labor is, but nobody told us that the two weeks after the baby was born would be so hard. The bottom line is I wish I knew more about the uncomfortable stuff!

Chris and I sat down for a candid interview on the Meaningful Living Podcast where we discuss everything about being new parents, what we wish we’d known before, and taking parenthood day by day. Watch a clip of the episode below and enjoy the full podcast here!
