Last week I wrote about the 32 things I had lost since becoming a mom. This post follows up on that by mirroring those things with what I have gained in their stead. I have to say that at this point in my life, this list is by far the better one.
I am sure that you have a similar list to mine and that sometimes things are tough. I just look at this list and say thank you for all those smudged walls, sleepless nights, cuddles and hours I have with my children…because before I look again, they'll have flown the nest and I'll be wishing I had these 32 things back in my life.
I am a preschool and primary school teacher and mum to 3 children. I have been involved in education since 1997 and have trained in a variety of educational specialist areas. It is with this expertise that I write articles to help parents and educators provide quality learning experiences for the children in their care.
