What I know now...

A LLL mama shared a link on her Facebook... it was a wonderful, thought provoking link.  Which inspired a fellow mama & LLL-er to blog about what pertinent bits of wisdom she would have shared with her pre-baby self.  Which inspired me, on the eve of C-McC first birthday, to share some sage words (okay, just some tidbits of knowledge).

  • Children fill your heart to the bursting point and yet somehow, there's more than enough love to go around
  • The best birth plan is flexible
  • Not everyone has a 36hr labour
  • Transition is a bitch
  • The moment your children meet each other will stay with you, forever
  • Every new experience that you share with your boys, is both wonderful and sad.  Non-parents will shake their head and call you crazy.  Other parents will "get it". 
  • Cherish your boys.  Before you know it, they'll be 1 & 3.  4 & 6.  15 & 17. 


  1. ahhh!!!! C-McC is ONE!!!! I can't believe it. [happy birthday!]

    Now that you and Joelene have written a blog post... hmmm....
