I began my journey as a mother, full of parenting theories and pre-fabricated ideas. On Day Zero, when hospital nurse brought my shrieking boi and smiled in encouragement to begin feeding, all those theories and notes-to-self from myriad parenting classes went kaput. I was as clueless as the barn cow stranded in middle of a crowded road.
I stumbled in the first few months and heck, there was not a single book on shelves on parenting that listed the dark side.
I am still clueless on most days, except that I know 99% parents are also in same state. Some pretend to know-it-all while others blog about their clueless-ness.
