This blog is for moms who like to be over prepared. They want to have their bases covered and then some. Pregnancy and motherhood is the first time in our lives we lose the ability to feel in control. For perfectionists like myself, this is terrifying! On top of losing control, new moms give up careers where they may have been climbing the success ladder only to feel incredibly unproductive, unsuccessful or even worse, bored at home.
I started this blog to share my personal journey through motherhood with other new moms. It’s written for those who are inclined to prepare as best as they can for all of life’s curve balls. Most pregnant women prepare for childbirth…but they don’t realize the bigger challenge is managing the life changes that occur after you have the baby. Where’s the training and orientation for motherhood? There are childbirth classes and videos, but what about parenthood classes? How can moms prepare for the most difficult transitions in their lives where their identity changed from “June” or “Mary” to “Spencer’s mommy”.
My goal is to help you get through that first year with the best possible preparation you could get, much like a mommy boot camp. The first year of motherhood was something that I thought I was thoroughly prepared for, but I wasn’t…and because of that, it was the worst year of my life (even with all the joys and precious moments with my son). Throughout this blog, I strive to offer advice for every stage of parenthood based on my own research and experience.
