If there is any thing that I haven’t learned about mommy groups is you learn to identify which mom is who and which one are you . which mom is on the ball and which one is well, not .
Alright mommies, I know we are mothers but we need to also take care of ourselves as well! Through out my pregnancy I noticed that my pigment got darker and my spot where very vivid (I suffered for acne for years and sadly have the scars to prove it). Since I was pregnant I was afraid of putting anything on my skin that would harm the baby. Now that I am 7 month post partum I am trying to find away to revitalize my face. So here are the products that I am currently using.
I have to admit , starting solids has been really challenging. There so much to choose , so many options. My brain is on complete overload. Not only that but our blender broke. So now how was I going to make baby food ? We decided not to get a new blender. Since we rarely used the last one. I had to do some research and figure out a way to make baby food.
After nine months of constantly going to the bathroom, food cravings extreme fatigue and morning sickness. The day has finally arrived to pack your bag, because let’s face it he/she can come Anytime now. It’s time to prepare for the big days event. If you’re being induced and you know the date you can prepare yourself two weeks in advance just in case you don’t run into any surprises. I suggest that every expectant mother start packing their bag the day of the final month. That way of anything should happen you can just grab the bag and go. So what will you need?
Men let me talk to you for a second. So you found the woman of your dreams you put a ring on it walked down the aisle and bought a house . Naturally there only one more thing left to check off. Childbirth. Now for many of you men the idea of having a mini you sounds great! It’s a way to carry on the name or for most of you, you just want to experience what it’s like to be a father. BUT BEFORE YOU DO you need to understand the journey you are about to embark on. Yes, childbirth is a great thing. Anyone that gets to experience this wonderful and beautiful journey should be considered the ultimate blessing. But it’s not all blue skies and red roses. I write this because as women we are somewhat aware of what we going to embark on. As far as pregnancy we, as women, kinda know what we’ve sign up for. I do think that the men are not ready for what may happen when the baby is born. So grab a glass of wine and your dear wife, because after reading this it will most likely stir up a conversation that you and your significant other need to have.
I don’t know what I was thinking. In the back of my head I thought this will be some well deserve time off from work. In my brain (first time mother syndrome is to blame for this) I though that baby will go down for naps and pretty much nap 24/7. Boy did reality shock me out of that real fast, real quick. So let me tell you future mothers, especially you first time mothers, that maternity leave is work not paid for one year vacation but hard work, emotionally mentally and physically.
