I always knew the day would come when I would write about this (or make a video about it).
This is by far the hardest post and most personal topic I’ve ever blogged about.
You see, our home was a pretty miserable place to be for a few years. My chef/husband and I had many conversations about it, but never really knew the exact problem and because of that, didn’t know how to fix it.
Then one day I figured it out. It was of course during one of the hardest weeks I’ve ever had as a parent. But sometimes it takes a really difficult situation to get me to wake up and figure things out.
I wish there was a way to go back in time and tell my younger self what I learned. I would have been a different parent early on.
Warning: I cry part way through the video. This is the second take. The first was worse! LOL. I even cried when I was editing the video. Sigh. . . parenting is much harder than I ever thought it would be. 🙁
ALSO . . . this started off to be a post about the Elementary years . . . until I started to share about some struggles we’ve been having. Just wanted to let you know so you didn’t think I messed up and posted the wrong video. 🙂
If you could go back in time and tell yourself one thing before you became a parent, what would it be? Let me know in the comments below.
