HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MOMS OUT THERE!
So I have time to blog this morning because I am waiting for my pancake breakfast to be cooked. The girls are taking over the kitchen (scary!) and are making breakfast. That's the great thing about having older kids, they are now able to take care of themselves and even take care of dear ol' mom sometimes.
When they were younger and less able to do for themselves, my husband and I did everything. It's nice to see them slowly learn to be more independent. We their parents can't take all the credit though. You know that saying "It takes a village to raise a child"? It is true in our case and with all parents. The bigger your community, your support network, the easier it is to parent you children and parent them well.
Sure, you can always find some expert opinion or other online but I use sources such as Parents Connect more often than not because you can connect with other parents who are going through or have gone through the same things. You can ask your question, express your worries and you get an answer with advice or comfort almost immediately. It's like having your best friend right next door and available all the time.
