The following is a video was created by Reflections of Motherhood. It asks the question: If you could go back to before you had your first child, what would you say to yourself about mothering/parenting? The video is composed of so many things I would have said to myself — things I try to tell myself today to make me feel better. Parenting is the hardest job I have ever been assigned in life, and I make daily mistakes…hourly mistakes. The guilt is immeasurable — and yet, it makes me understand my mothers better — and forgiveness possible.
How about you? If you could go back to the time that your first baby was still moving and kicking inside you, what would you tell yourself about mothering/parenting?
