Ohhh, I do love Fridays! And to make it even better, I’m sharing some more advice on parenting from some Moms Who’ve Been There.
-“I would have liked to have been told to write everything down because even things you think you will remember, you don’t.” — Kim P.
-“I wish that someone would have told me — not just before having kids, but before even trying to have them — that building a family might be challenging, and that if things don’t go so easily, it’s okay. I was pretty blindsided by the struggles we had with infertility and pregnancy loss, and I think if I’d had a been-there-done-that woman tell me this beforehand, it would have been better.” — Erika B.
-“Advice I wish I had received for Baby #1: You don’t know what you need. A 900 item registry is ridiculous. Ask for gift cards.” — Kristen S.
-“I think the simplest and most comforting advice came from a coworker, who reminded me that women have been having babies for millions of years, and it would be alright.” — Jodie S.
