If you’re wondering what to get your husband for Father’s Day, look no further. You helped me corral your hubbies into answering a survey for me, and the results are in! Here’s what dads really want for Father’s Day…
First, how important is Father’s Day, really?
The average rating out of 5 stars was 3.5 stars – which basically means: they enjoy Father’s Day, it makes them feel appreciated, but perhaps they think about it a little less than we do about Mother’s Day.
Hey there, mama! This post is a continuation from our article on Transitioning to Two Kids. Here you’ll find even more advice, tips and encouragements from moms of multiples about transitioning from one to two kids. I’m so grateful for these moms who have gone before us! Hope this is helpful on your journey to multiple kiddos.
Hey mama! I’m excited to share this post with you about the transition from one to two kids. I’m sharing my own story, but I also have lots of helpful advice, tips and encouragement from moms who have gone before us! I hope this is helpful as you navigate the new waters of having two kiddos.
Talk to your wife or mom about what she would like. Ask questions like: What do you envision for your ideal Mother’s Day? You make every day special for us, how can I make your Mother’s Day special? What’s something we can do for you that would make you feel extra appreciated on this Mother’s Day? You can still add your own special touches, but I guarantee that your wife has something in mind that she would like for Mother’s Day. Work together with your kids to make that happen, and to make it extra special. It’s safe to say that you can’t ever go TOO overboard for Mother’s Day.
I am so excited for this blog post! I have always found it helpful to get other viewpoints from different moms. This segment of the blog is for that purpose: to offer perspective. For each of these interviews with a mom, I’ll be talking with a mom of young children (babies, toddlers, etc), a mom of older kiddos, and a mom of adult children.
I remember reading an interview like this on another mom blog that helped me to realize that it was okay for my kids to play by themselves. It honestly had never crossed my mind that my (at the time) two-year-old could play in a different room while I did something else! I’m sure that sounds insanely basic – but you just don’t know what you don’t know! Like I’ve mentioned before, I was not a “kid person” before having my own children. So it’s been helpful for me to learn from other moms, hear some different viewpoints, and just start a discussion about topics that are relevant to me as a mom.
I’m so grateful for these women who took time out of their busy schedules to answer my questions. And wow did I learn so much!
