Question: What does a baby cost?
Answer: As much as you have to give.
Today the final prep for the DD's baby shower will take place. It seemed so far off when we first began planning and now, well it is almost here.
I was thinking about the best advice I could give my daughter as she becomes a mom and here are a few of things I thought would be important.
You can never love your child too much. There is no such thing as too many hugs and kisses.
Always tell bedtime stories,
Always say their prayers with them
Always encourage them. Loving words are something your child will never outgrow
Remember, you know your baby better than anyone else. Trust your instincts!!! Every day that goes by you will know more than you did about being a mommy than the day before.
#1--You know more than you think you do.
#2--You and the baby are a team.
Sleep whenever you can. The housework can wait a few months.
Take pictures. You won't remember the details, but a few years from now you'll wish you did.
A happy and contented mom makes for a happy and contented baby.
No matter how bad you think your voice is, sing. For your baby, and for yourself. Any song works, even if you can't remember all the words.
The best thing parents can do for their children is to love each other.
I know there are quite a few that I've missed but these came to me off the top of my head...Can you think of any others?
Hope your Friday is a fantastic one!
