  • My kids have taught me so so much! I would need to make a journal out of it instead of an answer.But I will try to narrow it down.
    #1- My kids taught me what real true love is.I had only thought I had felt love up until then.The moment they handed me my baby girl I knew then , that was real true love.I knew I cared more about her than myself and would gladly lay my life down for her.
    #2-Patience.I was always a rusher.Now I never rush.They taught me to take things slowly and enjoy life.
    #3-That I can do alot more than I thought I could.I was always told I couldnt do this or that.After having kids,I started discovering all kinds of things I can do .For one, I never thought I was smart enough to teach but I now homeschool my kids.regular school failed to teach my daughter how to read and i managed to teach her! lol and i am so so proud of that.She has asperguers
