Hello! You're here! Welcome!
My goal for this blog is for it to be a resource for other moms like me - moms who:
- Are older (I’m turned 40 this year - holy cow)
- Are business owners/entrepreneurs
- Don’t want to have to sift through the sea of search results
- Can’t stand going on those message boards on baby sites
- Don’t have time to read all the books
- Like nice things
- Still want to have a life of their own when possible
- More than anything want to maintain a sense of self
Are you going to spend time going through reviews and product comparisons? Are you going to take to social media to crowd source? Will you want to ask your mom friends for advice too? Sure and I encourage you to do that! My biggest and best resource has been my friends who are moms who are either at the same stage I am or who have been moms longer than I’ve been.
Here’s my first tip: It can be very very isolating being a new mom so DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP AND GUIDANCE FROM THE PEOPLE YOU KNOW.
If there’s one thing I learned when I miscarried eight years ago it’s that I was not and am not alone and someone out there has been through the same trials/tribulations I have.
So that’s why I’m here. That’s why this blog is going to happen. I’ll be honest, I hmm-ed and haw-ed when it came to starting this baby up, mostly because I didn’t think anybody cared what I think or would be that interested. I also want to add that I'm not doing this to try and become a mom blogger (though if any brands out there wants to send me things that are of use to me/my child to try or review, I’m always open to that) but ultimately if I can reach or help just one new mom out there with all this? Then it’s all worth it.
Stay tuned, the blog posts, they are a-comin.
