The past three years with Costa, and now 3 weeks with Paolo, has been a time filled with learning about myself through my children. Not every lesson is easy, as we face our own shortcomings and insecurities head on, but there are also many beautiful lessons—in joy, love, patience, and understanding.
Often times our parents say, “we did the best we could,” and after having a child this phrase has taken on much greater meaning. So far, my greatest lesson is patience. Especially, when you are sleep deprived and drained (both emotionally and mentally), patience can be one of the hardest things to muster. Patience, however, is one of the most necessary virtues when dealing with children—especially toddlers! A lot of slow, deep breaths talking through the feelings that are present goes a long way for everyone in the household.
