One of the truest pieces of advice I got when I was pregnant was from a friend who said, “You don’t get what you want when you have a kid, you get what you need.”
Whether that is a curse or a blessing is a trick of perspective, really.
But without a doubt, the last 12 months have been the sweetest ride and the steepest learning curve imaginable. And we’re not even at the hard stuff. (He doesn’t answer back, yet.)
The Pemberton Welcoming Communities project is hosting a series of workshops through March and April on parenting to help smooth that learning curve out a little.
