    how very true and very well put Kerry!! You certainly touched on all the things I worried about when they were babies. Trouble is now I am worrying about the next stage and the next and the next…… 🙂 Love reading your posts, thank you!

      I am so pleased you found it useful. If only I had been told all these things when I was a new mum, things would have seemed a lot less daunting! Congratulations on becoming a new mummy too! xx

    Great post hun, so very true & I remember searching google for advice as a new mum, this would have been great. Any thoughts on a 3 year old with attitude? Ha ha xxx

      I so wish someone had given me this advice 8 years ago! We over complicate things trying to do it all perfectly and we forget to relax and enjoy the moment. Hmm, I know all about 3 year olds with attitude……….and 6 year olds………..and 7 year olds! It doesn’t get any easier I’m afraid 😉 !

  5. Lovely list! And something I would do well to remember if there’s a next time!! I especially love your advice to enjoy a good box set – I’m totally giving myself a new one and enjoying every minute of it!

    Thanks for linking up to #TheList xxx

  6. I couldn’t agree more! And yet here I am with baby number 4 breaking all the rules! I really do need to give myself a break 🙂 x x x

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      We all do it. It is only now mine are all past the baby stage I can look back and see where I went wrong. Just enjoy the moment as it is gone far too quickly. xx

  7. Great post and I think we all wish we could’ve given ourselves that advice before having our first babies!! x
