You don’t have to be a perfect mom to be the perfect mom.
Take a moment to envision the perfect mom.
For me, it’s the van-driving soccer mom. You know the type. Mom jeans, white tennis shoes, big hair. They’re the type of mom that makes a mean heart-shaped PB & J, keeps the house impeccable, and still manages to drive Britney AND her friends to every dance recital. It seems like every fiber of her being is dedicated to #moming.
I’m not a van-driving soccer mom. Aaand whatever your version of the perfect mom is, I’m guessing that you’re not her either.
When I accomplished my “goal” of getting pregnant before 28, I thought that, like the rest of my life, my journey through babyland would be perfect.
Babies eat perfectionists for breakfast (and spit them up).
As you can imagine, it wasn’t long before my perfect motherhood plan was destroyed. I decided to have a beautiful, natural birth. My daughter was breech. So I planned a C-section. My daughter flipped. I prepared for a relaxing, med-free birth. 27 hours and a spinal-anesthesia cocktail later, my sunny side up baby was delivered.
Your story might be different than mine, but I bet it’s similar.
Doesn’t it seem like some babies were created for the sole purpose of driving us to the brink of insanity? Babies that like to sabotage the best laid out plans and wreck havoc.
Murphy’s Law Babies.
When I looked into her devious blue eyes for the first time, I had no clue that the fun was just beginning. Tongue tie, diapering, nursing, reflux, gas. Every issue that my baby books warned me could happen seemed to with my little Murphy baby.
This blog is for Moms and Moms-to-be that want to be the best mother they can be.
Every mom deals with baby blunders.
They range from the mildly irritating (like not being able to clip your baby’s finger nails until they reach evil witch levels) or painfully heart-wrenching (like watching your baby scream from reflux).
You have enough on your plate. You shouldn’t have to search endlessly or pray that your key phrase turns up a viable result on google.
Whatever your personal baby blunders are, I want to help you. Because I’ve been there. And believe it or not, finding answers to the hard questions of motherhood is my happy place. Delivering answers to you is my passion.
If you’re just getting started, here are a few of the topics moms just like you are finding answers to every day:
Let’s walk through babyland together, Mama. You’ll never be a perfect mom, but together maybe we can be in the only way we need to be.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
