  • Know that for the next 18-20 years, you will need to be more invested in the life of your child than in your own.

  • I WOULD TELL TO PARENT TO START LISTEN WHAT THEIR CHILDREN HAVE TO SAY NO MATTER WHAT AGE, JUST LISTEN TO THEM. BECAUSE THAT IS THE BIG PROBLEM BETWEEN ME AND MY MOM

  • do what works for you. You will be bashed by others but only YOU know what works best for you. Don't let the rude ones make you doubt your parenting choices

  • The time goes by quickly. It may seem that they'll never sleep through the night or be potty trained, but blink and they'll be walking across the stage to get their high school diploma, blink again and you'll be the mother or MIL of the bride. Blink again and you'll only see them a couple times a year as they move away.
