This Mom's Notes For Her In-Laws Perfectly Sums Up Precious Firstborn Syndrome
March 25, 2015
When you have your first child, everything is a bit more extreme - hand sanitizer in every room, sterilize everything that falls on the floor.
Eight years ago when her daughter was just one year old, Susanne Kerns was preparing for a once in a lifetime trip to Italy - childless. It was her first time leaving her daughter in the care of someone else.
She just found the list of instructions she left for her in-laws and it's priceless. She says:
"What follows is the body of the note and what I can only imagine was going through their heads as they read it…"
"I share this with all the moms out there: It's for the moms who are preparing to write your own lists of ‘guidelines and instructions' (that will probably sound a lot like this one) for your first time being away from your baby. And for the moms like me, with older kids, but who can still remember that first time we handed off our sweet babies as we ventured way out of arm's reach for the first time. Save those notes. You'll look at them someday and they'll remind you of how far you have come."
