What I've Learned Since Becoming a Mom
What I've learned...
Children of any age are a precious gift. Cherish every moment. They really do grow up so fast.
Don't strive for perfection. Life goes by too fast, and your family will still love you even if you don't have a perfect house or the perfect meal on the table.
Girls are so precious when they are small, with all of the pink, purple, bows, dress-up and girly things.
Girls who are shopping, dressing, having hair appointments, and taking photos for Prom or their wedding are absolutely just as precious.
Boys will be attracted to mud and water when they are small, but they do clean up beautifully.
Boys who are 14 will be attracted to firecrackers and anything that burns or blows up. -- Give them LOTS of supervision.
Adopting a child opens up a completely new pocket of love in your heart that you never knew existed. Yes, absolutely you will love this child as much as the ones you gave birth to.
Children do spread their wings and fly some day. Learn to love all of these stages and embrace the new chapters in their lives and your own.
