Mommahood

     

 

Hey fellow Momma’s!! This section is dedicated to you! Here is where you will find advice, venting sessions and facts about Motherhood. This is a journey for all of us and I truly believe that we need each other to get through the tougher days. I have met some amazing woman while venturing out into the blogging world and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. I get my facts from other websites but write about my own feelings about these facts. If you want to hear about a certain topic please don’t hesitate to contact me at: momma@mommameals.org.

 

Mom’s Lets Stay United!! And…..A Week Of Photo’s!

Mom’s Lets Stay United!! And…..A Week Of Photo’s!

Something I do to capture my days and stay positive as a SAHM is take a lot of photo's. They aren't good photo's. Most of them are taken with my phone, however they are my life. It makes me stay positive during days that are frustrating. Those days that challenge me to answer the question of why I became a SAHM. I have friends or sometimes complete strangers that say they could never do it. I have friends that must work to support their families. We all contribute to our families as mothers, it's just all done in different ways. I've come to realize over the past year that becoming a mother changes you. I used to think it was in a way that made me a cranky bitch of a person to be around, however I've discovered in the last few months that it's more in a way that has made me a stronger

This is what my life has become…..And I love It!

This is what my life has become…..And I love It!

As a mother of two little ones I often find myself completing this sentence......A LOT. "You know your a mother when..." Fill in the blank. I've got some whoppers I'll tell you. I'll just share a few of my favorites with you so you get the gist. "You know your a mother when you kiddo spits up, you use your glove to wipe it up, rub it on your pants and be on your way, and then forget to throw the gloves in the laundry." "You know your a mother when your picking up after your kids have gone to bed, you pull a toy out from under the couch, along with the cat fur and old cherrios that come with it, and proceed to push that fur and old Cherrios back under the couch since you just vaccuumed......4 days ago." "You know your a stay-at-home mother when putting on make up and a pair of

Baby Led-Weaning-Our Experience Part II

Baby Led-Weaning-Our Experience Part II

Welcome to Baby Led-Weaning-Our Experience Part II, it was supposed to be out last week, but as usual life gets in the way! However I'm always thinking, yes I'm that nut job that walks around going about her day and thinks "wow that would make a great post, I should talk about that. Or how about that "ah ha" moment when you catch yourself saying (and don't say that you don't) "This is what my life has become?!!" Just admit it, we've all thought it, or if you haven't than I'm the delusional one then! Like today, the perfect example when I was elbow deep in my what....the eighth poopy diaper of the day (and it was 1pm) and at the last second of wiping my son pulled the wipe from me and yup........my hand went right in. Right directly in. To spare you the details of how the rest of that

Baby-Led Weaning – Our Experience Part I

Baby-Led Weaning – Our Experience Part I

You've probably heard me speak of this term quite a bit since having my son 8 months ago. I bought the books, did my research and asked around to other Mommy's on how this thing worked. I did what any first time mother did with my daughter. I eagerly awaited the five month mark, ran to the store, bought the cereal and couldn't wait to pop my little one in her seat to watch her gobble up this yummy cereal! Fail. I was so upset that she wanted nothing to do with it and wouldn't even let it go into her mouth. I was disappointed but more so I felt like I was failing her (yes I'm hard on myself) I didn't understand what was really going on and why she didn't take the cereal. It wasn't because she didn't like it. It was because she didn't know what to do. A lot of people are under the

Allowing your child to be who they want to be……

Allowing your child to be who they want to be……

I bring this subject up with a heavy heart because I don't want people to think I I don't love my daughter or that I would never not be proud of her, I'm bringing up the topic because I know there are other parents that must feel the way that I do. I'm a girly girl. I'm pretty sure I have been all of my life. I played with my dolls and I played house and all of that while growing up. I love anything pink, fancy and sparkly. I love my nails painted, a nice hair do, make up and a good pair of heels. I love shopping for purses and new cloths and dresses for the summer. So obviously when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter I was more than happy. That little girl growing inside my belly became my world (well she still is of course). On October 27th 2010 I became one lucky woman bringing

A Momma Survival Kit

A Momma Survival Kit

I've been meaning to post this and share it with all you lovelies out there but sometimes my recipes are just so gosh darn good that I have to share them with you ASAP! So anyone out there that may have family or friends expecting? Well if so this one is for you! I didn't think of this in time because all my Momma friends all had #2 from Spring until Fall of this past year, so I only got to actually give this gift to one new lucky Momma. Everyone always buys a little gift for the new bundle of joy, a new outfit, a plush toy or a nice soft new blanket. Well I like to spoil the Momma, why? Well to be frank she just spit the kid out now didn't she! So I thought of this idea when thinking of becoming a Momma again this past summer. What are some of the things we NEED?? Without a doubt NEED the

Top TEN Momma Posts of 2013

I love New Years! I love it because it's a chance to glimpse back at the year that has come and gone. So many things happen in a year. For me it was the birth of my son, the purchase of our very first home, and a lot of great accomplishments for this Momma! Then I get to look forward to the upcoming year, I tend to concentrate on Summer because I prefer warmer weather. For now I'll spend the rest of the winter cooking and creating, I'm having a surgery I've waited ten years for, then before I know it Summer will be here and I'll be celebrating my son's first birthday, AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! It is just so crazy how fast time flies. In the mean time let's look at the Top Ten Momma Posts of 2013.

Reminders of a Precious Life

Reminders of a Precious Life

It's been another one of those weeks......one of those weeks where I find myself asking a lot of questions........questions about work, questions about what kind of Mom am I really.........so I'll confess my questions, but then I'll share with you my reminders of how at the end of a week like this week.......I start all over with a positive and happy attitude. I now snap photo's of anything and everything that is precious to me. 1. Would I be a better mother if I went back to work? 2. If I worked full-time would I appreciate the time I had at the end of the day more with my children instead of pulling the hair out of my head come 4pm? 3. Even though it sounds super selfish, would I have more patience with my children if I spent less time with that each day? 4. Would I
