Let's face it, being a mom is hard.
No matter how prepared we think we are there is always some new disaster that presents itself.
From the moment you find out that you’re pregnant, your entire world begins to flip upside down and you’re left to navigate the new waters on your own. Sure there are books and movies and plenty of unlicensed pediatricians (aka other moms) out there telling you what you should and should not do in regards to your baby, but guess what?
It’s your baby! You are the mom. You are the boss. Period.
This is not another blog to try to tell you what you HAVE to do at every stage of the game. My goal is simply to give you some new tools to help you figure out your best way forward.
If you want to breastfeed, then I want to help you do it. If you want to put your kid in daycare and take over the world, then I want to help you do it. If you want to stay at home and memorize every hair on your baby’s head, then I still want to help you do it because you are the mom and you are the boss.
Say it with me
I am the mom, I am the boss, and I am in charge!
Now that that’s out of the way, my name is Mallory. I am not a doctor, I am not a nurse, I am simply a mom that is trying to navigate my own waters. I have a beautiful little boy and a wonderful step-daughter.
Though they have both been healthy (thankfully) we have had our shares of ups and downs. I have tried just about everything in every book out there to make sure that they are happy and well cared for and it is exhausting.
My goal is to try to help you figure out what would be best for you and your family. If I can keep just one person from stressing themselves out over “why is/isn’t my kid _____” fill in the blank, then I will consider this a success. I’m not here for me. I am here for you.
In addition to being a mom, I am also the proud wife of a soldier, as well as a certified sommelier, which is basically just a fancy name that says I like to drink wine. I also work from home as a website designer. Many hats indeed.
If there are any questions that you have, or topics that you would like for me to discuss, or if you just want to say “hi”, please do not hesitate to reach or stop by the Facebook group.
Until then, happy reading!
