When you were a little girl how did you dream about being a mother? What did you see for yourself?
How did your own upbringing reflect on becoming a Mother?
How did you meet your husband ( your children’s father)?
What discussions did you have about starting a family? Do you remember telling your husband the first time you were pregnant? Was it a surprise or a long-planned event?
What did you love about pregnancy?
What has given you the most joy as a mother?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

1. I just thought I would become one. I dreamed I would have like 4-5 kids and be the 50's style mom you used to see on tv LOL. Made everythign from scratch,etc.
2. Being a great wife and mother. Doing lots of fun things and enjoying every minute.
3. That it was what women did and that family was most important(aside from God that is).
4. At work, we were co-workers but dated in secret cuz it was a no-no.
5. That we wanted to start one right away cuz neither of us was terribly young(me 30, him 40) and we wanted 2 or 3. I was shocked and woke him up at like 6a to show him the test. He was a bit annoyed at the wake up but once the morning fog cleared he was thrilled. We had been trying for about 6 mths so for a time and it was definately planned.
6. Feeling the baby move around and respond to my voice and Dans.
7. Watching their individual personalities come out and watching the wonder with which they embrace new things.

When you were a little girl how did you dream about being a mother? What did you see for yourself? Very similar to my mom - stay home with the kids until the youngest goes to school all day, baking, cooking, cleaning...
How did your own upbringing reflect on becoming a Mother? See above
How did you meet your husband ( your children’s father)? through mutual friends
What discussions did you have about starting a family? Do you remember telling your husband the first time you were pregnant? Was it a surprise or a long-planned event? We knew we wanted several. When I first told him, he kept saying "Really?" like over and over again hahaha. It was our first TTC cycle and we hadn't expected it to happen right away
What did you love about pregnancy? everything...especially movement
What has given you the most joy as a mother? watching him begin to learn and understand things

When you were a little girl how did you dream about being a mother? What did you see for yourself? I really wanted to be a mother, and when I was very young I thought I wanted like 12 children
How did your own upbringing reflect on becoming a Mother? My mom was a terrible mother because she was mentally ill. I know that I probably work too hard to show Robby how much I love him so he never has to doubt it the way that I did.
How did you meet your husband ( your children’s father)? online dating site
What discussions did you have about starting a family? Do you remember telling your husband the first time you were pregnant? Was it a surprise or a long-planned event? We married later in life (I was 38, he was 41) so we planned to get pregnant as soon as possible. I was feeling pretty down because we had been trying for 9 months already and every time I was late, the negative ept was devastating. This time I was 2 weeks late and was going to wait til the weekend to test, but DH said to do it on Thursday because he didn't want the weekend ruined with my tears, lol. When it was yes, I could not stop crying. He kissed me and went right back to sleep. I remember feeling so disappointed at his non-reaction. I'm not telling him anything first-thing in the morning anymore, lol!
What did you love about pregnancy? I loved feeling the baby move, but mostly I was uncomfortable and ready for the pregnancy to end.
What has given you the most joy as a mother? Watching Robby turn into who he is, and being part of helping to form him into a wonderful little person.
