I want you to get to know my children as we journey together.
Introducing my oldest, Corri. I have a special place in my heart for oldest children and only children. What experiments they are! No matter how many books you read before you have a child, you are never prepared for the many emotions and challenges that first child brings. It is hard to explain to a couple BEFORE their child arrives, how much your heart grows to hold the amount of love a parent has for a child.
Corri was the sweetest baby, with a wonderful temperament. I tried to do all the “right” things, because for heaven’s sake I KNEW them. I had a cabinet full of books! Together, my husband Brad, Corri and I grew up. And, in spite of Brad and I she is a successful 25 year old woman who is very creative and in marketing. She is my mentor for this blog!
Corri taught me that as long as you provide a loving environment for your child, all will usually be good. Did I make mistakes? Of course. But looking at Corri, I learned that you don’t have to be perfect to be the perfect parent!
Take a breath, enjoy the joyful moments of each day, and remember you don’t have to be perfect to be the perfect parent.
