What have you learned as a mom? Share one thing.

For me, let's see, I have learned to never say/think "My kids would never act like that." Any time I have ever done that my kids have gone off and proved me wrong, lol.

For me i have just givin up on the idea that "i will never let my kids act like that" or " My children will never do that if i have anything to say about it"
Obviously i said that befor i had children. because i have a 2 year old and he is going to do exactly what you tell him not to do and frankly, sometimes it is just easier to clean it up later than having to stop feeding the baby.

My thing I have learned is to not try to figure them out! LOL. They each have their own personality and do things differently.

PATIENCE My way might be quicker, but his way may still get it done - along with a sense of accomplishment. (Like picking up the playroom )

to lighten up....i was so uptight with bryce and it drove everyone around us nuts...with each kid i have lightened up alot..who knows what this last one will get to do. LOL
I have also learned not to judge people on their kids...if others seen the way me kids act and thought that was how i taught them i would die b/c i try very hard to teach them right but that does not always mean that they show it when i am not around.

I have learned that no matter how many children you have each one is different in every way. The hours they sleep to what they like to eat. You must adjust to every childs different personality, likes and dislikes

Not to listen to other opinions on raising my kids... Advice is always welcome.. But if you are going to critize me on how I am raising my kids... You might as well keep your mouth shut...

I've learned that no matter how many girls you have, they are all unique! Other people are constantly comparing them; NEVER compare children!!! It is useless!
