My expectations of family life before I had kids were so different from the reality that I eventually faced with five children in seven years, including twins... And then I had kids!
My expectations of family life before I had kids were so different from the reality that I eventually faced with five children in seven years, including twins. I used to be critical of moms whose children had runny noses. Why don’t their mothers wipe their faces? I would wonder. I’d stare at a child in public whose hair looked like it had not been brushed in a week or whose clothes did not match… And then I had kids!
Would you like some encouragement and advice from a mom who has been there? When the Yates’s twin daughters were born, they joined siblings ages two, four, and seven. Drawing from her experience, Susan offers this helpful guide for parents facing the challenges of raising young children.
And Then I Had Kids will help you handle common struggles such as priorities, discipline, and fatigue. As Susan shares biblical insights and her own humorous stories, you’ll be comforted by understanding, refreshed with laughter, and stimulated with ideas to enable this season of life to be one of unique and lasting joy.
This book is ideal for mothers of children ages eight and under. It makes a great gift for new or overwhelmed moms who wonder, “Does anyone else feel like this?” Questions at the end of each chapter make this perfect for a moms study group.
