As a tired Mom of three kids, the most common thing people say to me is “It will get easier”. But does it? Does parenting get easier? Because with each stage, comes new challenges! When I had my first child, people use to say “it gets easier when he sleeps through the night” When he was one and into everything, they said “it gets easier when he’s more independent” When he got more independent, I heard “it gets easier when he’s in school”
The truth is, parenting never gets easier, it just changes over time to different stages!! I never knew I would be so paranoid the first few days my son was at school. And when my daughter started school I figured that one would be easier since it was my second time around…NOPE! I had to rush out of there before she saw my tears.
Does Parenting Get Easier?
It doesn’t get easier, and I’ve found myself no longer caring about it getting easier. Instead I focus on how at each stage, they become more amazing!!! Parenting is not meant to be easy. We are shaping someone’s life…that is hard work! They are finding their own personalities along the way and testing us is part of how they grow. It’s truly amazing that these little kids, are the future of the world, and we as parents play a part in that! They all have so many different qualities too, as a Mom of 3, I have learned to stop looking for it to get easier, and instead focus on every precious moment as they fly by so fast! Especially focus on their good qualities as they all have so many!
- My 7 year old is a creator and can build anything!
- My 5 year old has a great memory and loves to dress up and perform!
- My 3 year old loves everyone he meets, but especially animals…even snakes!!
I’ve learned parenting doesn’t get easier but with each stage there are hard things but also so much JOY!! Especially when their little personalities begin to show and you see the amazing people they are going to be.
They love without worrying about being hurt.
They trust us 100% percent.
They don’t believe bad people exist in the world.
Every person they meet is their friend, no matter they status, race, gender etc.
They are pure, and we get to help shape them!
Yes parenting is hard, but hold on Momma as they grow up way to fast and before you know it, you created an adult who can change the world!
