The new year always brings so much hope and joy to people. It’s a fresh year. It’s a fresh start. Your slate has been cleaned.
I feel like there are parallels between a newborn and a new year. They come into this world with a fresh start. A clean slate. Here is a tiny human that brings so much joy and hope to the world. Newborns are like little sponges – waiting to soak up anything and everything.
New parents can definitely feel a little intimidated by the path that lays ahead of them. So here are 10 of my favorite quotes to inspire all of my new parents out there.

“Children become what they are told they are.”
“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”
“The best security blanket a child can have is parents who respect each other.”
“One thing I had learned from watching chimpanzees with their infants is that having children would be fun.”
