5 Things I’ve Learned Raising Daughters

My oldest is just becoming a teenager. I can’t believe we’re here already. I started this blog when she was just a baby so to see her now so grow up just makes me realize how much everything has changed. Life happened in just a moment and here we are onto the next stage of our life. I have three daughters and I love being a mom to my girls. Each of them are at their own stages. Our youngest in Kindergarten and our middle in third grade. They’re all years apart so parenting each of of them is different.

5 Things I’ve Learned Raising Daughters

  1. One For Everybody – Everything has to be fair. Maybe it’s a sibling thing but if I buy one I have to buy three.
  2. Time – Spend time with each of them alone. Each one of my girls is involved in different activities and I really pride myself in allowing them to do whatever they are passionate about. So be it swim or dance or gymnastics I allow them to have a voice and find their passion.
  3. Patience – Girls have a lot of things. From clothes to hair ties. Raising three daughters I’ve really had to slow down and have patience. Allowing them to clean up even if it takes long or doing homework with multiple children at once. I’ve realized that I don’t have to rush everything.
  4. It’s A Lot Of Fun – Lets be honest. Girls are a lot of fun. As they’re getting older they’re discovering their own sales and personalities. I love these moments with them as they’re getting older now.
  5. They’re Not The Same – One thing I’ve come to realize is that they’re not the same kids. They are each so different so it can’t always be fair. My younger girls have a hard time with this and their older sister but they have to know that she is a teenager and she is older.  The reality is they are different.
