    A to Z | Behavior, Boundaries, & Balance #AtoZChallenge

    Hi there, everyone! Welcome to the second post in The Mom Blog WI’s April A to Z Blogging Challenge. If you’re participating in the challenge, I hope you’re doing well and going strong on the third day here! I wanted to talk a little bit about Behavior, Boundaries, & Balance today because these words are often used in relation to each other when talking about parenting, and have particularly been used with us and our family recently. It’s been weighing on my mind and I haven’t much liked the context in which they’ve been used, either. If you haven’t heard already, our almost 3-year-old has recently had a speech delay…

    New & Improved; The Mom Blog WI

    Hi there, everyone! Notice something a little different? *Wink, Wink* *Nudge, Nudge*     It has been a long, looooong two months since I have created some new content and let me tell you, I have missed this! I have been sick, for I kid you not, two entire months. Two months! Back in January, I started with a sinus infection that just would not quit! It. Was. AWFUL!     I eventually ended up with a sinus infection and started a round of antibiotics at the end of February, which did nothing! Absolutely nothing. So I muscled through every single day, every single week, waiting for it to get…

    The Road to Motherhood | Parenting & Phases

    The Road to Motherhood | What No One Tells You  Parenting & Phases One of the biggest parts of parenting is the struggles that we go through in raising our little ones. Everyone will tell you to embrace and love every moment. They will tell you how unbelievably blessed you are; there are people who wish they could be parents, you should be thankful. There will be people who tell you that you’re ungrateful for complaining or even thinking about calling these difficult times hardships. We are incredibly blessed as parents; we all know that. But these times are also incredibly difficult, and no one tells you that it’s okay…

For the third day and the letter C, I chose Connection & Communication.

But my goal is also to spend my time in this series reflecting on parenting as a whole, which I’ve spent a lot…

    The Road To Motherhood | Diaper Changes

    Do You Want to Know…What No One Told Me About Motherhood? Changing a baby, and then a toddler’s diaper, is a fiasco,EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. No one thought to tell me this! Not one. Single. Soul.      No one thought that I needed time to mentally prepare for that. See, the pre-mom me had watched plenty of moms change their children’s diapers. And yes, there were plenty of times when I had seen it was an ordeal, of massive proportions! You always see the smiling mom on the TV commercial who’s bending over her precious little baby, getting ready to change their diaper while the baby’s cooing ever so sweetly.     …
