Lessons I Have Learned In My First Year of Motherhood

Dear Parker Letters
I love writing little letters to Parker now and again. It’s a great way to tell him what is going on in that moment of our lives, what he means to mean, and how much I love him.

Motherhood Confessions
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.

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.
