Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

We Came First

We came first.

Before the pacing of hallways with colicky babies.
Before the little hands started grabbing ours to ask us to come play.

We came first.

Before the postpartum depression and anxiety.
Before fixing 3 littles’ plates at every meal and saying “please don’t lick that” to the most random things throughout the day.

We came first.

Before the adorable little onesies, superhero figures, and princess dresses.
Before the bassinets, Pack ‘N Plays, and bunk beds.

We came first.

Before the squeals and screams that interrupt our every conversation.
Before the little snuggles of our Littles between us in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning.

We came first.

And each day I’m reminded that we still need to make time for us.

It might look different right now.
It might be harder to figure out right now.

But we will.

Because we came first and will still be holding hands when our birdies fly from our little nest.
