Finding the funny with 3 small kids, a husband, 3 cats, some sea monkeys and 2 hermit crabs who like to keep to themselves. Autism, Diabetes and Food allergies live here and I clean a lot of poo -but I never fling it.

What are the top 3 pieces of advice you would give to a new mom (or mom-to-be)?

Remember before your belly got really big and the troubled sleep started? Think back to that last time you slept through the night soundly. Is it in your mind? Great! Cherish that thought because tip #1 is to give up on restful sleep for the next 18 years. While you have that picture in your mind, also remember and grab a tight hold of the feeling that you know anything. Tip #2 is everything you thought you knew about parenting is wrong -it is personalized for each child. And tip #3 for the newbie mamas is to buy stock in cleaning supplies. Kids are cute as buttons, buttons that have been drug through the mud and sneezed on. Good luck.
