I didn’t think I would be very on top of things when it came to preparing for my third baby. What I have learned from being a Mom of two toddlers is that preparation is not only extremely helpful it is NECESSARY to your mental survival.
Now that summer is in full swing here in CO, it's time to hit the mountains and go hiking! Hiking can be quite the task and even more so with kiddos. After spending a summer living on the coast of Mississippi, I realized how much I miss the mountains here in Colorado! My family, especially my toddler Charlie, could live outside.
There is a lot of uncertainty that comes with pregnancy. When will I go into labor? Will my baby be healthy? What is my new life with baby going to look like?
I am currently on my third pregnancy and can tell you that these apprehensions are still relevant. One certainty I can count on myself adhering to is creating a warm and loving place for my new baby to come home to.
Memorial Day was the "unofficial" start to summer, which maybe didn't feel that way in Colorado because we had 6 inches of snow a few days prior, but nevertheless, spirits are high. We are ready for swim suits, bbqs, lots of time outside and sandals over here! Let's talk about our favorite summer picks for baby + mom!
I am a Mama who tends to believe everyday with your toddler is as Forrest Gump would say, ‘…like a box of chocolate. You never know what you’re gonna get.’ My children have emotions and behaviors that range from perfect angel to spawn of hell. This is why I have always thought that when you travel with a toddler you just have to cross your fingers and pray to God they are feeling heavenly. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to prepare like crazy and try pushing your children’s attitudes down the path of righteousness.
