Real Motherhood Tips & Experiences
Real Motherhood Tips & Experiences
Motherhood is both the best thing I have ever done as well as the hardest. It’s rewarding, scary, and sometimes bittersweet.
And the truth is, there’s a lot of ways to rock motherhood but not one perfect one. I spent too much time with my first feeling guilty in some way and with my second I realized what a useless emotion that was.
What I’ve learned in the last five years is that we all parent differently- and that’s awesome! My goal with this section is to give you some ideas on how to accomplish something in a different way than you might of thought while sharing my experiences (and fails) along the way.
I am super passionate about doing my best to raise healthy kids. I think all moms want the best for our kids but there’s so much out there that it can be overwhelming.
So my advice is to take it with a grain of salt, try and see which aspects work and which don’t and know that at the end of the day you’re still doing amazing.
I am not a parenting expert, I’m just a mom of two trying to rock this motherhood thing. But I think that each and every one of us could teach something to another mom!
We all do things differently and that’s why motherhood is awesome.
It’s my goal with this section to share ideas, new ways of learning, and the moments in motherhood we won’t forget.
What You’ll Find In This Section
- Parenting tips you may not have tried
- Activities for kids (mostly young kids)
