There’s nothing in your life quite like the experience of breastfeeding your children. You’ll create this profound bond with the little life you brought into the world, but you’ll also experience sore nipples, tender breasts and grumpy people who think you shouldn’t be exposing their delicate sensibilities to the concept of feeding babies in public.
So I have this major insecurity....my arms. They're huge! Well not really. They could use some work. BUT kids happened and life happened. I no longer excercise the way I used to and my eating habits could be better.
When I moved to Miami my daughter was about 15 months old and my olest 3. We didn't know anyone and had to quickly find solutions for daycare. We were still getting to know neighbors and couldn't trust anyone with our treasure. One day for some reason (mommy brain...don't remember) I had to bring my daughter into work with me. I was working at a university and had my own office. So I figured I could close the door and I wouldn't bother my co-workers. What I couldn't predict is how my boss would respond. He had always been great about me working from home when I needed to but bringing a toddler to work?
Robot nannies are now a thing! Moms can order robot nannies to help care for their babies and they are now starting to appear in the United States. Currently used by moms in Japan and China robot nannies are a hit!
Laughter heals the soul and makes you feel great but it is so hard to laugh when you're stressed out or doing a trillion things. Moms are so inundated with chores, babies, work, school, social media and more. When do we make time to laugh and I mean laugh out loud?
I’m a fan of Moms Pump Here because it’s the perfect mix of creativity, problem solving, and women supporting other women. To me, it represents genius born of the maternal experience. Moms deal daily with multiple demands, usually conflicting and all happening at the same time. We have limited resources of time, money, and our own energy. Yet most nights, by the time we fall into bed, our families are safe, fed, and loved. We know we can look to each other for help, and Moms Pump Here delivers.
Judgemental eyes, gossiping, passive aggression and lies. Bullying, in some mom circles, is not done with in your face teasing or physical contact on the playground. It's done with smiles and being fake. If you've ever moved to a new area and quickly realized you needed to enroll your child in a particular pres-school or playdate group because you didn't want to be a social pariah then you are familiar with a world where judgement is common place.
