I am so blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing women and mothers who don't mind me asking a million questions. I've gotten some really great, really funny advice about being a mother. I thought I would share some of what I've learned...
"Don't read too many books. They will just freak you out!"
"Adoptive parents are better... they want it more." (he was kidding... sort of)
"Find a mom who you really love their parenting style and ask them lots of questions." ( sweet Olivia)
"Parenting is 1/3 love, 1/3 discipline, and 1/3 sitting on your hands." (from Kristyn via "Blessings of a Skinned Knee")
"Ask your mom." (duh. I can't wait to hear all of my mom's secrets)
"Knowing Jesus is the most important, most helpful, most impacting and most transformational person you could know and all you really need to be a good parent. Remember that when it gets scary." (Thank you Besty!!)
"Drug 'em and send 'em to day care. You can at least get a half day out of it." - HAHAHAHA
Here are some books that were recommended. I'm going to heed that first piece of advice and try to decide on a couple. Here they are...
