My friend is one hot mama (to be). Rather than have the traditional women-only baby shower where all the girls sit around and play games, Dina wanted to have a co-ed barbecue on my patio (which turned out to be more fun!)
When her little girl is born next month, I volunteered to babysit once a week to give her some R&R. Now Iím getting nervous about my offer: What the heck will I do with a tiny baby? Iím scared about not knowing what to do if she just lies there and cries. Iím much better with kids (toddlers and older) because I can talk and play with them. Since thereís no mandatory parenting classes, how do people automatically know what to do with a newborn? Looks like Iím going to get a crash course.
