As the newest member of the Franklin Goose team I have decided to write a post each week about parenthood from my perspective. Nothing revolutionary just a peak into the life and thoughts of a mother with 2 kids, ages 4 and 2. Maybe some tips and tricks, hopefully some random knowledge, and some humor.
The funny thing is that I have been a mother now for 4 years and I still can’t quite get used to it. I still think I can have a Saturday or a whole weekend to myself to sleep late or read a book. I keep wondering when it will sink in that this is my new life at least for the next 16 years.
I do know those years will go by very quickly and I will be back to having free time again and then I will be missing the kids being around.Which, is one of the first things I learned about parenthood, your feelings and emotions are all over the place, one minute you are calm and happier than you have ever been and the next you are in tears and completely out of patience.
Parenting is the ultimate journey and such a learning experience. I thought I was finished with my education but I am back at it. I read all about pregnancy, then birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering when I first started this journey. Now, I am reading about discipline. Who ever knew it could be so hard. Who ever knew it could be so fun.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you and hope you will continue sharing yours with us at the store and on the web.
