Mom Lists 27 Things She Wishes She Knew Before Having Kids

As you might’ve understood from Casey’s post, there are moments when things simply don’t go the way you’d want them to. That’s OK. “If you’re at a low point and can’t physically take a break from raising your kids, find other ways to take a step back,” the mom advised. “Cancel a few activities you have planned. Have your kids take more independent time (even if it means turning on the TV for a bit longer than usual) for themselves so that you can find a few minutes of quiet for yourself. Wake up thirty minutes earlier to get a slower start to the day. Any way you can think of to find a few extra minutes of calm and quiet… Do it. It’s good for your mind, heart, and soul, and in return, it’s good for your kids!”

“We’re all in this together,” she added. “We all parent a little differently (which is okay), but we all need to step up and support one another. Motherhood is hard, but knowing someone has our back makes all the difference.”
