I have learnt many many things along my journey with 3 children. But there is one thing that I have definitely learnt now I have come to number 3.
And that is that there is no rush for things. We seem to be in such a hurry to toilet train, to get them in a big bed, to get them talking, to get them reading.
But you know what? Who cares. What about enjoying the journey, and relishing the moments they are so small. Because it goes so very quickly.
With my third I am in no rush to toilet train, no rush to put her in kindy, no rush to turn her cot into a toddler bed. Because I know it will all happen with time. They all get there in the end.
I want to enjoy every precious moment with her. I'm by no means a perfect Mum, but where I wanted to rush everything along with my boys, I want to let my little girl find her own pace and her own way... and I think it will all work out in the end.
