So, here I am, blogging when I should have the computer off. I should be on the floor engaging with my kids and doing all those wonderful "research based" motherhood things that I push myself so hard to do. Luckily, I have a few minutes (and quickly running out) of blog time to get this off my mind because my kids are taking pride in filling up each other's "love buckets" and playing nicely. Oh, and I bribed them by telling them we would go to the Children's Museum in a minute.
Will I keep reading the research and the parenting books? Yes, absolutely! So much to learn. But I'll also keep in mind that I have to trust my mother heart too and know that you're not a good mom just because you read a good book and do what it says. On that note, we are off to the Children's Museum to get some germs. Happy Hump Day! Thank you for all the wonderful comments yesterday on my 32! blog.
What have you learned about motherhood that is different from what you thought before you were a mother? How have your ideas about parenting changed from before you actually experienced it?
