When I was pregnant with my first child I was out of a job.
I had moved countries – from England to Scotland – and didn’t have much to do but read.
Books books books.
I read parenting book after parenting book. I prepared myself for what was to come so that I could – hopefully – be ready.
Ready to be a mom to a newborn.
Ready to be a mom to a toddler.
Ready to be a mom to a preschooler and on and on.
Never perfect. Never thinking we can attain some lofty ideal, but with the goal of being prepared and ready to be the best mom we can be.
