  • It's not always easy but...EVERYTHING is worth it. Being a Mother is the MOST amazingly rewarding thing in the world. Enjoy all the little things as much as possible because they grow up SO fast. Love them to pieces every day and always tell them how proud of them you are and how much you love them. All things I do anyway...hey maybe I did tell myself that. HUH lol

  • To take the time to dream about the baby, and to realize that little ones grow up quickly. It seems forever when you are exhausted from lack of sleep and child care and running to the doctors and worrying about the child, but it isn't forever, and those times are soon behind you and you are left with an empty house, and you love when they come to visit. I would have told myself to relax more and enjoy the experience of having little ones rather than being so anxious and trying so hard to be a good mom.

  • I would tell myself not to scratch my belly so much because it really does make stretch marks worse.
    (I had a rash on it and within 2 weeks exactly my faint little stretch marks became huge and red and my belly hadn't even grown!)
