Having a boy and a girl is perfect for a small family. Our children always wish that they have more siblings but for me, two is enough. Even my husband wishes we have more lol. Having children is a blessing and a joy. You get to experience the wonderful feeling of being a parent and it makes you stronger everyday.
Parenting is an everyday learning experience in my opinion. There is no book that can define or tell you how to properly raise your child. Every child is different so you could never rely on someone else expertise as it might not be applicable or would not work with your children. As I mentioned, it is an everyday learning experience.
My kids taught me so many things that I never thought I could do. It can be hard sometimes but that is a part of learning and growing.
I am fortunate enough to stay home and take care of my kids. I was once a workaholic person that works in an office from Monday to Saturday. I thought I would grow old doing the same thing everyday until I met my husband and became a Mom to these two beautiful and loving kids. I gave up my career and took a role of much important career at home, being a Mom. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
These two have a sweet and sour kind of relationship. One day they are very sweet to each other and other days they're not. I guess, that is just normal for siblings. I remember my older brother and I always bicker growing up but there's no doubt that we love and support and each other.
I may never give them everything or be able to afford this fishman triple play from MF but I can truly assure them of my love. I am blessed to have a husband who loves us and supports us with everything. For that I am grateful to God everyday.
I couldn't agree more of how parenting was said by James E. Faust "To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favor of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself. "
