Are you a new or expecting parent? Here are 5 things I wish I had known about #parenting as well as #coupons for diapers. Time to stock up! #ad #SharetheLuv

I always knew I wanted to be a mom.

It was never a question, even when I was ridiculously young and couldn’t even begin to conceive of this insane idea of parenting another human. While I couldn’t begin to flesh out the details, even in my mind, there were so many things I “knew”, or thought I did. I remember starting stories with, “One day when I have kids, we’ll..” Or, “I can’t wait to take my kids here one day.” I had it all figured out in my head, or so I thought, but really I knew next to nothing. Except one thing.

I always knew I wanted to be a mom.


That said, I’m one of five kids, and I remember all of our scattered ages, stages, and phases better than I should! I have incredible long-term memory. I remember when the youngest of us were in diapers. My mom used Luvs Diapers. The packaging has changed, but one thing that hasn’t changed for me is seeing Luvs diapers in my home! My parents always used them for the five of us, and my mom kept the boxes for decades to store baby clothes. She probably still has those boxes!

I remember what the boxes looked like. And now it’s more like this:

Some things change, and others stay the same. I’m seven years into parenting, but the learning curve is steep and powerful. I love talking to my sisters about having babies, and I love knowing that the door hasn’t closed on that part of my life.

5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Parenting:

1 – Kids develop at their own paces. I learned to walk when I was 18 months! Some kids learn at 8! I learned to read at age four. Some kids learn at six or seven. Try to enjoy each milestone, without always thinking about the next one to come.

2 – Have a good sense of humor and embrace the messy chaos, and chaotic messes!

3 – When your baby grows up and you’re at a parent/teacher conference you might glaze over the academic talk just to get to the good stuff: “Is she happy? Is she KIND? Do other kids like her?”

4 – You will parent better if you take the time to do something you love. Regularly. It’s good for you and it’s good for the kids to see you achieving your own happiness. Take breaks. Take breaths. Take it easy on yourself. You’ll need it.

5 – You will go through a LOT of diapers. And diapering is an art form too! Luvs is the official diaper of experienced parents, and they are offering big savings this month!

No doubt about it, I wish I had known that we’d need a lot of diapers, and that parenting is expensive! Luckily, Luvs is offering great money-saving opportunities.
