What you wish you would have known

My doula director at CAPPA (Darla) just shared a video that I couldn't just post on FB, but had to blog about instead!

They asked mothers what they would tell themselves if they could go back to the time right before they had their child. This video is a compilation of those thoughts. I love it and thought you would too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taDqKWWPDAY

Since I sent my little one off to kindergarten today, I am having one of those 'perspective' days. It was a wierd day, but one that makes you miss them when they were small and needed you so much.

I think that my note would say this:

YOUR LIFE WILL BE INTERRUPTED, BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT.

or mabye this:

YOU WON'T BE THE KIND OF MOTHER YOU EXPECTED. BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED.

What would your sign say?
