As a Parent, Sometimes You Just Have To Lie, But When?

I got a sweet Mother’s Day card this year from my 3-year-old son. Inside, his teachers recorded his answers to a few questions they asked about me.

According to him, my favorite color is pink (I can see that), my hair is black (so I’m thinking it’s time for some highlights), and what do I do while he is at school? I “make the Easter Bunny eggs.” Uhhh… I thought I was being sneaky about that.

Photo Contest: Celebrating Imperfect Parenting

There’s a lot of pressure out there to be a perfect parent. To have the perfect sleeper, eater, and play-er all while pushing the perfect stroller. In reality, we’re all just doing what we can every day. Of course we want to do our best for our kids but we’re humans, not machines. In the world of baby caring where sleep is limited and tempers (both the toddler in your home and yours) run high, who needs the stress of trying to be a Perfect Mom?

Mommies Unite…Or Stab Each Other in the Back

As a whole, I think moms generally tend to stick together, help each other out, give comfort, advice, and form long lasting bonds and friendships with fellow moms. This said, I have been present in situations where moms don’t always have each other’s back and end up making others feel awful.

Carseat Safety by Christine Lee-McNaughton

Car seats terrified me because I was always worried that my car seat wasn’t good enough or Little One wasn’t positioned properly. Some sources said that there should not be any “rolls” or anything in the car seat except for the baby, lest the baby get smothered. Other sources said because she was a preemie and less than 5 lbs, it was okay to stick rolled up towels or rolled up blankets on either side of her. So many conflicting rules!

Things I Said I Would Never Do

We have all been there, we have all done it. We watch other parents with their children and thinking to ourselves, “I will NEVER do that.”
