Remember, you’re a Rockstar!

I see you. Sitting there, nervously tapping your fingers, searching the endless void that is the internet for answers, attempting to convince yourself that you can do this. You’re scared because you have no idea what to do with a newborn baby, or how to live in this new skin called mom. Well, I’m here to let you in on a little secret – none of us have ANY idea what we are doing. Even those that appear to have it figured it out are just guessing and hoping. I’m just a mom who takes it one day at a time. I’ve made mistakes throughout the way, and so will you. But you’ll learn from those mistakes and that baby will love you, trust me. Even on those tough days when you feel like you can’t calm that newborn, your exhaustion is taking over, and all you wish for is a large glass of wine and nap, you’re still doing an amazing job!

Below are a collection of posts, tips, and hacks to help you in pregnancy and that newborn stage.

So, remember, through all of this, be sure to take a breath and remember – you are already a rockstar! Welcome to mommyhood! It’s a crazy adventure filled with smiles, poop, way more diapers than you could imagine, and unforgettable memories – you’re going to love it!

You got this!
