5 Tips to Prepare Your Kids for a New Baby7.12.2016
When it comes to preparing for the arrival of a new baby, I feel like I've got that part of motherhood completely figured out. Which is probably because I had all of my kids really close together; and that gave me the opportunity to revisit this beautiful life transition quite frequently. And with each pregnancy, I felt like I got that much better at helping my other kids transition more easily to the new family line up and get really excited about me having another baby.
Of course, this did require a lot of time and effort on my part, but it was always worth it because I knew I would hardly have to worry about my kids developing any sibling resentment toward the new baby. If anything, I always found myself having to make sure my kids didn't love our newest baby to death. Haha! Because I spent a lot of time during and after each pregnancy to prepare my kids for their newest sibling, I ended up creating a tiny army of mini baby helpers that often told me how they thought I should be doing my job. Haha!
Now, instead of having one mom, Benson has four and I attribute that to me choosing to do the following with my kids.
