I am a novice mother. I gave birth to my first born over 34 months ago and had my second born 18 months after that. Motherhood has been one tough act to follow. The learning experience is endless. It is never black and white. It is a lifetime of second-guessing and not knowing. Books about motherhood are plentiful, but they only serve as guides. We always learn the hard way. Here is a compilation of 9 clear-cut life lessons I have learned in my first 3 years as a mother. I am sharing it to all of the novice mothers (or even the more experienced ones) out there.
I never had problems with my kids’ appetites until two months ago when my little boy turned 32 months old. What happened is still a mystery to me, but with this spaghetti recipe, he forgets that he is a picky eater.
I used to be one of those people who maintain a tidy, spotless home. Bed was always fixed, dishes were always washed, dirty clothes looked like they just got out of the dryer and trash was always out of the house every chance I got. It all changed when I got married and started having kids. So today, (on a plane to New York for my cousin’s wedding) realizing that I am slowly losing my old self, I decided to do something about it and started jotting down 7 surefire cleaning hacks that never disappoint for myself and all moms alike with little kids to keep things tidy at home.
Constipation (or the inability to evacuate one’s bowels) is one of all moms’ biggest fears when it comes to transitioning our little ones to solids.
