WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOUR GIVE TO NEW MOTHERS?

Put your needs/wants on hold. You will have the chance to have “your time” before you know it. Cherish the sleepless nights holding your baby. Going to school events when you don’t really want to. Helping with homework. Playing board games. Make the most of your time with your kids. You can never get that back.

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES OF RAISING YOUR CHILDREN?

Each day will bring a new challenge. I have found that when I feel like I’m doing a good job something on social media, or a snide comment will make me question myself. Don’t pay attention to the perfect lives that people portray and don’t compare. Each family is unique. If it’s working for you and you’re raising kind and loving children you’re doing a great job! Nothing is perfect. Even when others appear to be.
