Share Your Parenting Wisdom
What's your number one tip for new parents?
Take a big breath! It's gonna be ok. Whatever is happening or challenging you- you are going to grow and adapt as a parent and it's gonna be just fine. Your child LOVES you so much and has no idea when you "mess up."
Give yourself some grace and love on your baby every second you get! Also, don't compete with your husband/ wife. Team up! And do this thing together!
What has been the most surprising thing you've learned as a parent?
How much I could love another person!
Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)
After playing in a water fountain at the beach and being in nothing but a diaper our daughter had no desire to put clothes on! She walked around, danced, waved at strangers and said hi to them all while we watched. At first, we tried to grab her but she wanted no part of it. So I ended up just video taping her as she walked around a public shopping center in her diaper. We laughed and laughed. And it also reminded us to just let loose sometimes. Life doesn't have to be so serious!
