  • you are going to make mistakes, but no one is perfect. KIDS WILL GET HURT. lol a hard one especially for first time parents to come to grips with. cherish every moment possible with them, they grow too fast :)

  • follow your maternal instincts. do what you think is right for your children, not what all the books and everyone else tell you to do

  • Don't sweat the small stuff.. Not everything has to be a battle..
    When you say no, stick to it..
    Be consistent!
    Children want rules and boundries (even if they don't know it now, they will thank you later)..
    'Just be yourself" never gets old..

  • Pick the battles worth fighting, patience and understanding goes a long way.
