I'm generally a confident person. It results in me being self assured, and rarely admitting to weakness or situations where I'm not sure of myself.

When people ask me if I'm ready for this kid, I usually reply that I don't have a car seat yet, but overall I'm pretty good.

I'm fairly sure that's a lie. I am the youngest, I've never babysat, never fed an infant a bottle, never changed a diaper and I don't know how to interact with little people. My boss brought his 3 year old grand kids by my office today and I was kind of deer in headlights. I mean, I know I'll learn as I go, and that there's some sort of maternal instinct that will kick in, but really, I'm kinda terrified. Or at least, unprepared.

On the bright side, I don't think waiting to have kids any later in life would have made me more prepared or less terrified. So, yeah, in 5ish weeks, here I go!
