YOU’RE DOING A GREAT JOB.
Mom life is hard. It’s a thankless “job” that we don’t even get paid for. But it’s the most rewarding endeavor, right? Even when your kid(s) drive you crazy, you still love them at the end of the day.
Welcome to Hey Mama Friend
An idea birthed out of a combination of the pandemic, nesting in preparation for baby #2, and a desire to help other mamas on their journey to motherhood.
I remember when I was pregnant with my first. I was constantly reading a variety of books, googling questions, watching YouTube videos, pinning blog posts, and chatting with friends.
But, if I’m being completely honest, there isn’t quite anything that can truly prepare you for motherhood. You just jump in, feet first, and hope your natural instinct kicks in.
Now that I’m pregnant with my second, I find myself trying to remember how things went the first time around. And a lot of it is just a blur. I sort of remember, but I also quickly forgot.
I have hazy memories of the first twelve weeks: lack of sleep, breastfeeding, pumping, attempting to take naps while the baby napped, and just trying to figure out which way was up.
Now that my son is two years old, part of me has no idea how we got here. I suppose we just took it day by day, and some way, somehow, we circled the sun twice, and are here to talk about it.
Grab an iced coffee and stay awhile.
I hope to make this blog a resource for new moms, second-time moms, and “professional” moms. I’ll be sharing anecdotes, things that worked for us, our favorite baby and toddler gear, and more.
I’m glad you stumbled upon my corner of the internet. If you like what you’re reading, thank you for sticking around. Feel free to pin any helpful blog posts to Pinterest or share on Facebook.
And there’s one thing I know for sure: there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to motherhood. You figure out what works for you and your family, and no one gets to say anything about it. As long as your kid(s) are happy (most of the time), healthy (subjective definition), and doing well, YOU DO YOU, MAMA FRIEND.
