My Mom Story…

I became a mom in August 2018, and my life has been a fantastic roller coaster ever since! Being a mom has added new challenges to my life and opened up many new and exciting opportunities. Becoming a mom has allowed me to explore an entirely new genre: parenting.

I learned pretty quickly that there are so many different parenting books that it can easily become overwhelming to find one that suits you. I immediately knew I was more interested in reading fun books about parenting than lengthy textbooks on how to do everything “perfectly” (I didn’t need that added pressure). So if your anything like me, scroll down and see some excellent books on motherhood (fiction and nonfiction) I have read. Additionally, I will be posting about numerous parenting topics and my experiences through different parenting milestones.

One thing I have to mention first, if you’re a new mom… pace yourself! You will not have that much time to read, and when you do have downtime, you may not want to read (I laid on the couch and watched Netflix most of the time). But, whenever you are ready to begin reading again, I think this is a great list to start with!

Toddler Transition From Crib to Regular Bed

Why transition now? This past weekend my husband and I transitioned our 2.5-year-old out of her crib and into a regular bed. We decided to do this for multiple reasons: When travelling, our daughter slept in her PlayPen, but recently she learned to climb out of it. Therefore, we needed an alternative.   She has learned […]
