Ask For Help When You Need It
The first thing Lauren’s ladies tell is that everything is going to be okay no matter what, soak up all the precious moments, you don’t need to love the mom job everyday, let yourself go entirely, and call mom if you can’t figure it out.
Also important are that you and your spouse (or partner) are on the same page on what’s best for the child, original parenting advice from you is helpful, ask for help from those that know, you’re not always right but you’re still good, and have fun while you’re at it.
Just A Card Helps
As yours truly knows with their family, a thoughtful and beautiful card on Mother’s Day, or any other time always reaffirms & reassures the work a mom does for her children all their lives.
