Managing The Home: how do I Measure up to Proverbs 31

As a woman, especially as a Christian woman, I've heard many times that the woman's role in marriage was to manage the home and rear children. THIS scared me! I mean, look at the Proverbs 31 woman... how did she do it all? This process of house management is different for everyone , for the stay at home mom, for the working mom, for the single mom, etc. so our processes don't necessarily look the same.. but, some of the same principles apply.

Snippets of MyMommyhood: Sleep is a Distant Memory

Snippets of MyMommyhood is something new I want to start doing. I'd love to engage with continuous blog posts but it takes time that I don't always have. So, I'm going to use these little snippets to be short and sweet but keep you all updated on #mymommyhood. A regular nights sleep may be far far away for some moms, and that's okay. I'm a firm believer in meeting your child where they're at. No mommy shaming here! There will be plenty of time for sleep in the distant future (haha). But right now, enjoy the snuggles, cuddles and extra comfort time with your little one (reminding myself as I write this cause the struggle is REAL!).

Stop Talking About My Child’s Weight

As a mom, or just as a parent, have you heard "oh he/she needs to stop eating" or "wow, they're so tiny" or any statements aimed at your child's weight? I know I have, and I am tired of it. .... It honestly makes me doubt my motherhood when I hear my baby is fat for his age or will be overweight as a toddler. It causes me to second guess his hunger cues and my mothers intuition, become insecure about whether I'm fit to be his mom, and other insecure thoughts.
