Thanks everyone for your responses to last week’s question: “What is one piece of advice you’d give to new or expecting parents.” I loved all the great comments, and know that my soon-to-be parents will too. My favorites were from Andrea and Tina.
Andrea says a lot to the effect that no matter how much you prepare you just don’t know how things will go, and I love her advice to “Take each day as it comes, accept all the help that is offered to you and don’t sweat the small stuff!”
And I loved Tina’s comment because she talks about the fact that our children just know that we’re doing the best, not that we didn’t use a wipes warmer or swaddle them just right. “When I couldn’t figure out what it was he wanted, he wasn’t thinking to himself, ““Sheesh, can I get a refund?”” No, the most important thing was that he knew he was loved and that his mama was trying her hardest to give him exactly what he needed. That love permeated through him and because of that, there was no way I could fail him.”
This week’s question is a little more intrusive and I hope that encourages more people to participate, I can’t wait to read what you have to say, so here goes…..
