Kristin and I could have panicked. Hearing about how much disruption a newborn can cause in our lives. Even with our fear, we chose to focus on the other advice given to us from most of the parents who talked to us. A newborn will be difficult. However, it will be the biggest blessing we can have and take the opportunity to learn how to have a better life and small business
