作为一个非妈妈,我知道我不能理解有一个婴儿是什么感觉怀孕,出生,所有的感觉都随之而来。没有它。尽管如此,我还是深深怀疑这很难,至少比许多名人对母亲的采访要难得多。这就是为什么我要从我的电脑前站起来,给予大家热烈的掌声瑞茜·威瑟斯彭她公开谈论这件事。

“刚生宝宝的头几个月让人很迷茫,”她在声明中说这个采访板球的圆。“我感觉我的大脑就像炒鸡蛋,我觉得很难穿好衣服,甚至很难走出家门,这是可以理解的。你得对自己宽容一点。Having prepared foods in the fridge and freezer was essential because thinking about cooking made me want to cry."

在这一点上,我想把这个故事转发给每一个有孩子的大学女友。然后它变得更加真实。

作为父母,没有人会百分百的自信。我们都在尽自己最大的努力。As long as you are always trying to be better at it—reading parenting blogs in the bath, swapping stories with other moms during a yoga class, googling how to talk about puberty with your preteen—you are doing a good job," she said, also discussing how saying grace and taking her children to volunteer is an important part of how she mothers.“我试着培养接地气的孩子。I truly believe the antidote to self-obsession is service to others."

我要分享的另一点是她在见面时得到的答案纳尔逊·曼德拉她问他小时候他妈妈是怎么说的。“他说,‘每天晚上睡觉前,她都跟我说我长大后会成为一个很棒的人。' Your words are powerful and formative, so be gentle with your kids and talk to them with kindness and respect."

这一切不都是最棒的吗?妈妈们,你们收到过什么特别好的育儿建议吗?你在家里生孩子的经历如何?
