What a wonderfully reassuring and positive video for Moms and families! Yup – we’re going to make mistakes, it’s so much about trial and error, but it’s okay and it will be okay! Wake up tomorrow and try again, apologize when you need to and then make it better. I love the advice to trust your instincts and know that you’re the expert on your own babies and kiddos! I’m sharing this! Love it!
