Baby Shower Advice Cards – Advice For New Moms
As I head into my 6th Mother’s Day Weekend as a girl mom (my 8th as a dog mom) and we get packing for our move to our forever home, I found these advice cards I saved from our baby shower. You’ll notice a few pieces of the same advice appear, but as I learned in re-reading and transcribing the following handwritten notes, you can never be too experienced when it comes to motherhood. Reviewing what you’ve already learned reminds you of what you’re capable of. Enjoy!
Advice Cards from my husband and I’s January 27, 2018 baby shower:
I have raised (and survived) 7 children. The most important advice I can give you is to love that child beyond all reason! Each child is a gift to her parents from God, the Creator. They will only be in our care for a short time and we don’t know exactly how long that will be. They are lent to us, entrusted to our care. Remember to thank God everyday for this special gift.“Brenda
“Don’t forget to soak in a tub with a great book and a glass of wine every once in a while…”Nicole
“Taking time for yourself and your lovely husband …you have the best babysitters.”Your Parents
“Rest when baby is sleeping! And don’t be too hard on yourself!“Unsigned
“Get rest when you can. Even if you think you’re ok, at least put your feet up.”Unsigned
“Love that bundle of joy with all your heart. And just remember that they only crey when they need something.”Unsigned
“You’re going to screw up. That’s a given! That’s a part of parenthood. The most important thing is to love your daughter with all your heart. The rest will come with practice!
Remember—your child needs to cry. That’s a given.
