I’m enjoying a break from blogging as my family settles in to life with our new baby. However, I”m leaving you in the hands of some very talented guest writers. Today, Simple Kids is pleased to welcome Deanna Smith. I think you”ll be very touched by her words, as I was. – Kara
When I was newly pregnant with my daughter, the thoughts filling my head were competitive, fierce and determined.
My spirits were high to not only be the most stellar mother possible, but also to have the most perfect, beautiful, smart daughter ever before seen on this earth.
I had a checklist: she would crawl at 6 months, walk at 9 months, begin the violin at 3, read ridiculously early and just overall be a genius/prodigy. I looked around at all of my friend”s babies and made mental notes so that I could push my child to beat all of their milestones.
