Moms and Opinions... Everybody Has One

Thursday, July 10, 2014

When I find a good read, I must share...kinda like paying it forward in a random sort of way, but I think if you find something special, you need to let others know.
Two years ago, when I was a first time mommy (and scared out of my mind if we're being honest), I wish I would've seen this article...I wish I would've known that I'm doing OK, that I wasn't failing, and that all Caroline needed was love, nourishment, and attention.
I've realized lots of young mommies, moms-to-be, and others read this blog and I want you to stop and take a moment to read this article (via Pregnant Chicken)...I found it so therapeutic and realized we're all doing the best we can, so stop, smell the flowers, and just know you're a great mom just the way you are.

  5. OMG that stroller story! It really does put into perspective the differences in "raising a kid" is now vs. our parents or grandparents' generations. I think my dad put it as "intense parenting" now - and that's pretty true relative to how we were brought up. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love this Natasha! So many moms feel like they're failing or doing a bad job, and I think we all need to tell each other we're doing a good job every once in a while!
