I cannot imagine parenting without.....
My beautiful son, of course.
My mum's advice & determination to stick by me through everything!
My brother ♥ He's my role model - helped me through so much ♥
Amazing friends xo
The Wiggles! More interesting than wrecking the house... for a while ;)
My fiance: without him none of this would be possible hehe :D
My daughter: i think everyones child has a personailty of their own and i am so glad for my daughters character even tho she is only 6 months it just shines right thru her. Her little laughs and touches. everytime she accomplishes something.
My mother: couldnt do it without her advice and help she knows it all!
My Father: he's a doctor so needless to say he gets many phone calls at all hours of the day and night to help me with all my medical questions!! He's a life saver
My brothers: All three of my little brothers help me out when i go and visit.
A Swing!!: nice little break
Swaddeling: so glad i learned it very helpful when she was a newborn.
My fiances job
A place to live
Love and patience.

my mom! shes always there to help me!!
My fiance, he works so i can be home and go to school!
cartoons, that way i can get 20 mins to fold laundry or whatever needs to be done
car/phone for dr appts, my mommy who lives an hour away, and those times when i really need an adult to talk to
and most importantly my daughter. without her i wouldnt be a mom at all! she is what makes me get up in the am and do all the things i have to do because it benefits her. she brings laughter and joy to everyday. I LOVE BEING A MOM!!
my partner (we have two kids, I only have two hands)
my mum (as above)
my breasts (tandem breastfeeding)
our kingsize bed (co-sleeping)
our washing machine (cloth nappies)
slings and baby carriers (baby and toddler wearing)
access to clean water and fresh local foods
well, I can imagine parenting without these things but it does not tickle my fancy.

i was thinking the same thing jennifer, lol! but i do believe that we love our children equally, i just can't imagine breastfeeding after my short stent with trying it, i can't imagine just letting my child be miserable and have no sleep, and i can't imagine myself being miserable and having no sleep, when CIO (now i'm talking more of a ferber method, not leaving the kid to wail for hours) works wonders and hasn't damaged my kids in the least. i believe it's helped them in many ways actually.
and babywearing i tried with my last one, hated it. lol. so did my son! :)

My many different slings
the ability to totally tune them out now that they are older
bottles (and hubby to get up in the middle of the night to give them)
WIPIES!!! I use them for EVERYTHING
did I mention slings??? its like having an extra pair of hands
.....and quiet nights when the grandparents take the kids
patience (which I need more of)
supportive friends and family
*And sorta on these same lines...I can't imagine parenting without my eyesight and hearing. I know that people do it all the time, but sometimes I have those moments where I wonder how I would do things differently with my son if I couldn't see or hear. It would make a hard job a thousand times harder, I think.
