Before I became a mom, I didn't realize how often both working moms and stay at home moms are compared and equally criticized. I didn't even know 'Mommy Wars' existed...but I'm here to tell you that it's a real thing, especially on social media--and it needs to stop.
You've heard the phrases a thousand times before--"She changed" or "He changed." These phrases are known for being used to explain why a relationship ended--whether it be a friendship, dating relationship or marriage. Why are we so quick to give up on each other just because we change? Do we really expect a person to stay the same forever?
If you're a new parent like me, then you probably don't have a lot of extra time for arts and crafts...Aren't we all just trying to keep the baby alive?! And, if you are on a tight budget...because let's face it, kids are expensive--this is the perfect Valentine's craft for you and your baby. You can even gift it to that special someone.
you can never truly be prepared to be a new mom. You can't predict the type of delivery you will have, whether or not you will be able to breastfeed, or know if your baby will sleep through the night. Then, throw in factors like you work full-time and your husband's unpredictable travel schedule...It can all be a bit overwhelming.
