Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

When we had our oldest son, I wish I would of known that nothing lasts forever. That the sleepless nights will pass. Him using a bottle will pass. Him wanting only me to hold him would pass.

I wish I would of known to just take a deep breath and remember, it all passes. On top of that, when our children are fussy and not matter what we do we cant get them calm, to remember that we aren't perfect, and don't have all the answers. I wanted to be the perfect mom. I realized, I'm doing the best I can, and I'm going to make mistakes, but hopefully, because of those mistakes, my kids will learn not to make the same ones I have. ​
