I am a different mom the third time around.
The things that worried me or overwhelmed me the first time, no longer make me feel the way they used to.
Today was Ainsleigh’s birthday (and Apple’s due date)- we had such a fun day celebrating our sweet girl. I couldn’t help but reminisce when Aiden and Ainsleigh were born. When I look at Apple, and me as a mother, me as a person…even in just three years I have changed so much.
I have learned a lot and grown up a lot. My perspective has changed.
I am different mom now.
I wrote this post tonight for Disney about being an “unschedule mom”.
It made me realize how different it is having a newborn this time around for us.
One of the most valuable lessons that I have learned as a mom is: do what works best for you, your family…don’t get caught up in what everyone tells you that you “should” do…. we are all so different, raising different kids…
so what works best for each of us is most likely going to look different too.
(sweet Apple will be 4 weeks old on Tuesday)
