Being First Time Mom/New Mom is Overwhelming

So about a week ago, I heard myself utter these words to a friend, “Oh being a mom of two is not as hard as I thought.” Boy did I eat the words today.

Now, its true we all have our good days and bad, but sometimes you just feel stuck in a rut. The truth is nothing particularly bad happened today. It is just everything seems a bit harder when you add not one but two kids to the equation.

Honestly it’s amazing that I even have a second for reflection. Thanks to a husband a couple of  nappers, I had a chance to  share these thoughts.

When you are a new mom it can be overwhelming to figure it all out.

Then you realize, you don’t. You just take it day by day, and as a Christian woman, I pray my way through it.

Getting out of the house seems to be an undertaking. I know ya’ll mamas out there feel me on this. I saw my mom struggle through it, and I thought “no it won’t be that hard for me.” Boy was I wrong. I now know exactly how my mom felt.

Babies are more than a blessing, they are a miracle, and I thank God for mine, but boy having a newborn and a toddler is some work! Shout out to all my mamas out there!

Can anyone relate? What do you do to get through those rough days?

By the way, as I finish this post, nap time is over. LOL. Hubby just called me and told me they are both awake and ready for mommy.

So, time to get back at it again. If you are experiencing a day like today, just know you are not alone.

Catalina Island Family Vlog – Vacation with Baby

In this video I share our family vlog in Catalina Island. It is possible to begin traveling on the Catalina Express even while traveling with a baby. It is possible to have a fun vacation with a baby and enjoy yourself and you will see how we did it! It is a whirl wind, and so much fun. This is actually a throw back to January to our wedding anniversary as a young couple.

Toddler Breakfast Ideas

In this spring time toddler breakfast I prepared sliced strawberries, a sliced bowled egg, turkey bacon, a bagel and cream cheese.

Here is a toddler breakfast idea for all of you natural moms. It is healthy, nutritious and colorful. Feeding a toddler can be very challenging, especially when they have decided what they like and don’t like.

My little Celina is no different. Here is what she had for breakfast this morning. Be encouraged, and keep trying new things. Eventually, you will win your toddler over 🙂
