I dont know if this counts as advice... but "People MUCH dumber than you raise kids. You can do this. Dont stress."

Trust my own instincts cause my instincts will tell me what my children need.

Never let anyone tell you that you are raising your child wrong, cause chances are the things they are saying are things they are doing.

We were told that it will get better (as she gets older).

This reminds me of the advice my mum's been giving me for awhile. "Don't listen to people, people are stupid." Which I've been finding out is very true.

The very best parenting advice I ever got was from a friend with 9 (insanely polite) kids. She said two things, "the best place to get parenting advice is from the Bible" I probably didn't take what she did from it, but that advice has helped me immensely. The other was "you can't go wrong if you just love them" Those two things (that I personally asked about! No unsolicited advice here) have helped me more than the heaps of random comments I get from people I barely know.

Kids act just like their parents......If you are calm and stress free your kids will be calm and laid back...they feed off your energy....and moldel the behavier you want from your children, they learn more frrom your actions and addituide then any words from your mouth...Thanks dad!!!

Follow your gut..screw advice...again thanks dad!

Relax and don't sweat the small stuff, enjoy your kids everything else can wait. In 10 years from now you won't regret not washing dishes but you could regret not holding your babies!

And the number one with the twins...when we were told Corbin was going to pass...and to be prepared to lose him...a wonderful twin mom reminded me...Doctors aren't god.....Oh how I held on to that. And my mircle baby who wasn't suppose to make it is sitting on my lap keeping me awake..lol
