5 Things I've learned since becoming a mom

1. Yoga is very applicable to motherhood: the breathing especially will help during labor and later on it will help you to keep your head from exploding when you find your toddler using your most expensive face product to draw on the kitchen window.

2. Breastfeeding isn't an effective birth control method - however a screaming infant who doesn't sleep more than 30 minutes in a row is a VERY effective one.

3. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but a homemade gift certificate for "daily showers for the next 3 months guaranteed" is also a great push present.

4. People who criticize me for leaving such a big age gap between my two daughters (6 1/2 years) are usually childless, have only one child and aren't sure about having another one, or have much bigger issues to handle with their own children.

5. My husband is the real Prince Charming.

AMEN, sister!

I'm not sure how, but it seems we're BOTH married to Prince Charming. :) I'm glad you have a supportive husband too.

You are so right - no-one has the right to criticise the gap you have between children. It's totally your own business. My brother is five years younger than me - I have to admit though, I have only really got to know him since we were grown up. Greetings from a South African granny!
