The Makowsky Family
What is your favorite family tradition?
My favorite tradition is our annual beach vacation. We visit a different beach each summer every year.
Tell us about your favorite family story.
We are a military and police family. For over 15 years now it's all we have known. We kiss and hug each other a little tighter each night because we know what is at stake each day.
I can't say we have a favorite story because our life is so precious every second is my favorite
What is your family's motto?
We are a police family so our motto is "never let them walk alone"
Is there anything else you'd like us to know about your family story?
We have had 2 miscarriages before having our amazing boy. We lost twins and then a sweet baby boy. I think to often people don't speak out about miscarriage and I would love to see some rainbow baby mocs and maybe a proceed go for a good cause
Share Your Parenting Wisdom
What's your number one tip for new parents?
Put your baby to bed the same way every night. It helps with a routine and they learn so much faster.
What has been the most surprising thing you've learned as a parent?
I have learned teenage years are really the worst and my mom was right about more than I want to let her know
Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)
I once found hair all over the floor I was freaking out thinking my daughter cut her hair .. the trail led to a Barbie with no hair I was like ohhhh thank god. As I went in to tell her not to cut her dolls hair she turned around and had very short bangs. I was so terrified then relieved and terrified all over again in such a short time lol
