Adding the Third Baby – Catching up with my Daughter In Law, Caroline Batres

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

Adding a third baby to your family? Listen in to a mom that has just been there on this podcast episode!My heart overflows with joy when this beautiful family comes to visit Nana and Bruce Bruce! Seriously, I love to hear the sounds of toddler voices and a cooing baby. Of course, I love seeing my son and daughter-in-law too, as well.

I thought it would be fun to check in with Caroline and have a chat about adding #3 to their family. Sweet Eleanor was born May 18, 2018 and has two great big brothers teaching her the ropes. I asked Caroline to share her thoughts on pregnancy, postpartum depression, having an unexpected C-section, and being a mom of three. We had a great time talking about how these subjects and more. Caroline feels strongly that women need to live their own life and as she says in the podcast, “You do YOU.” I have to agree with Caroline. So many of us get caught in the comparison trap and we end up making decisions because someone else thinks it is best. You and your partner get to decide what is best for your family. Don’t get caught up trying to please everyone else. Also, take people’s advice with a grain of salt. People mean well, but they aren’t you. 

If you are a new mom, you don’t want to miss this episode. Caroline is wise beyond her years and has great insight to share. I am so thankful that she is mine and I get to watch her grow as a wife and mom.

Have a great week!
