Again with another exciting episode of Ask The Reader!
Emily asks: If you knew you'd never see your kids again, what advice would you give them for when they become parents? Teach their boys to pee sitting down AND aiming down. ;) To not sweat the small stuff - and most of it - including said peeing mystery - is indeed SMALL stuff. To talk to their own kids, to laugh with their kids and to always, ALWAYS make time for themselves.
Jodie wants to know: Which addition to your family was hardest to adjust to? Going from 1 to 2 kids was hard for me but not terrible. I am still trying to adjust to #3, who is 20 months. We are considering a fourth, but I don't want to lose what little mind I have left! Each one was tough in it's own way. #2 child was allergic to milk, and I was nursing her and ingesting TONS of it, so she literally cried around the clock for six solid months. When I figured it out, she was a different kid. When #3 was born, the pediatrician told me that my husband and I were moving from man to man defense to zone defense. That was pretty true. #4 blended in beautifully, but I wonder if that had more to do with is personality. He was a very happy, sunny baby who rarely cried and was content for hours on end. #5 and #6 just joined the crowd. SO, overall, to sum up - ha! I get long winded, don't I? - I'm gonna say either 2 or 3. It's a toss up. :)
What about all of you guys?
