When I got the email from Shell asking me to be her newest BFF, I literally jumped for joy. I’ve been a fan of hers for awhile now and was lucky enough to meet her at Blissdom. She is one of th
e sweetest and nicest girls. Plus, she’s a ton of fun on the dance floor.
Like Shell, I’m also a mom of 3 and I thought I would share a few things I’ve learned along the way about the various stages of motherhood.
Baby 1: Rushing the Progress
With my first baby, I was young and inexperienced. I had no clue what I was doing, but I couldn’t wait for my sweet little boy to get bigger and older.
When would he crawl? Talk? Walk? I couldn’t wait for him to play sports, start school and be a big kid.
Baby 2: Ignorance is Bliss
Baby number two was not much different than baby one. They’re only two years apart so many of their infant and toddler phases are one big blur. I couldn’t wait for the new bundle of joy to sleep through the night, get potty trained, be able to play with his big brother. I wanted them both to share toys, read books and enjoy each other.
Baby 3: Slow & Steady Win the Race
This time, I was older and wiser- as wise as one can be at the ripe age of 26. By this point, I had been at the mommy game for 8 years and felt like I had FINALLY learned a thing or two about how to wrangle a baby.
