I started thinking about how different it is now with four kids, instead of when it was just one child.
Remember when you had your first child and went to church for the first time or just out in public?
I kept her in her car seat when ever we went to Church so no one could touch her! I also didn't put her in nursery until she was 5 months old! Then came the second baby, I still kept her in her car seat, because of germs, but the nursery was a welcome relief at three months! Third baby- I would use the car seat, until I put him in the nursery at 2 months. Fourth child- would somebody please take this child and take her right to
the nursery- pretty much as soon as they would take her she went straight to nursery!
Remember when your first child started to want sweets?
My first child I wouldn't let have sweets, and when my sister snuck her ice cream at 1 year old I was mad! The first kid is not aloud to have gum, lollipops, candy, etc....but by the time the last kid comes around, you are screaming somebody get the kids some M&M's!!!
With the first child nap time is a sacred ritual done at exactly the same time of day every day without fail.
Last child, is lucky to get a nap where ever they can drop.
First child and germs~ everything was washed and sanitized, labeled with all pertinent information.
Last child- 5 second rule, just blow on it and eat it. And as for being labeled? If you can find your name under all the other names then it must be yours!
If you only have one child you may not know what I am talking about, and you will say that won't happen to me! Trust me, by the time the last kid is born you are so exhausted you just go with the flow!
