Pregnancy with Parker
Although I always knew I wanted to be a mother I don’t think one can truly understand all that entails until you are one. We aren’t perfect and no one gives you a manual after you baby is born. I have learned what I know from other parents, blogs, and a few books along the way. With motherhood it’s all about sharing knowledge and helping one another so here I share what I have learned from others and through experience.
Life With Two
Life with two children has been so much different than I expected. My mom always said a second child is more than double the work and she was right. Iv’e learned a lot along the way, mostly through mistakes, and wanted to take time each month to reflect over the challenges I faced as well as document the growing bond between my children and our family.

I started this series over a year ago in hopes of opening up a little more about my experiences as a mother. Although I like to make this blog a happy place, motherhood often throws us curve balls. We are emotionally and physically challenged daily and sometimes at the end of the day we go to sleep with regrets. Did I yell too much? Did they not get enough attention? Why did I let them eat chicken nuggets? The truth is, we aren’t perfect and that’s okay! Life isn’t suppose to be Pinterest perfect. We can focus on those moments, but sometimes we need to reflect on the outtakes to get the full picture of motherhood. This series is about being real. Sometimes controversial. But never sugar coated.
Child Proofing Your Home
I use the term child instead of baby because I have found that you don’t truly realize how dangerous your house can be until you have a toddler running around testing ever inch of it.
