The Top 5 Things I've Learned from My Mommy Friends

Some days I feel like I have everything in order: The boys are napping simultaneously, the kitchen has stayed clean since breakfast, and I actually have makeup on! Other days, it seems nothing is going the way I planned for it to go — and for someone like me who loves to be in control, this can be overwhelming. On days like that, I feel very fortunate to be able to call a friend who is also a mother and ask for some advice.

I have gotten so many awesome tips from my mommy friends that I thought I should share their top 5 tips with you!

On Listening to the Right Voices

The internet is a great tool for parents these days. When it’s 2 a.m. and your baby is spiking a fever, you can quickly Google what you should do. You can find other moms on forums who are struggling with the same breastfeeding issues you are struggling with. You can type a question about sleep training in your Facebook status and receive a plethora of advice from parents who have been there, done that. It’s great! But it can also be overwhelming and damaging.

The Healing Powers of Laughter

It’s said, laughter is the best medicine.

As a new parent, I couldn’t agree more. It’s not that I need cheering up, or that I’m under the weather. I’m feeling quite well. It’s more that I just can’t imagine a more sweeter sound in this world than when Wyatt is rolling on the floor laughing to his own delight. It’s medicine, alright; the most heartwarming kind.

My Favorite Part of the Day with Baby

If you asked most mothers what their favorite time of day with their little ones is, you might get the typical response of, “bedtime!”

And on many levels, of course that is a great time of day–there’s nothing quite like the scent of freshly-bathed babes and children, looking all cute and cozy in their pajamas, and that moment when the whole family piles on the bed together to read a nighttime story.

But if I’m being totally honest with you, there are also nights that I completely dread bed time. By that time of night, I am so exhausted and even though I want to make bath time and story time fun and loving, I also just want to get it over with so I can collapse into bed myself–for a few hours until the baby needs to be fed again, anyways.

Which is why, if I had to choose, I would say that morning is my favorite part of the day with my baby. 

A Day in My Life as a Mommy Blogger

A lot of people ask me what it’s like to be a blogger for Disney Baby. They usually say something along the lines of “Oh, how lucky are you?! That must be the easiest job ever!”

Well, on one hand, they’re right! Blogging is a pretty easy job. I get to tell people all about my life as a mom and gives tips and laughs here and there. The blogging part of being a mom is the easy part, but the “being a mom” part takes some work. Haha. I guess the hard part is multi-tasking: taking care of two babies at home WHILE blogging can be a little stressful, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So I thought I would give y’all a glimpse into my daily life as a mom and blogger. Here goes:
