Mommy life is not easy, my friends…however, I wouldn’t change it for the world. For those who don’t know, we struggled with fertility for years but we are forever grateful the Lord grant us our wish to become parents to the cutest little girl, Emily Isabelle, who is straight up a social butterfly and full of personality! You guys, I can’t believe we officially have a toddler…where did time go?! No joke, I have conversations about what to eat or what Peppa Pig episode to watch and I love it! I swear, she’s a little Minnie me but extra, lol! My mom tells me all the time (in her Puerto Rican accent), “Igualita ti cuando eras pequeña! (translation: Exactly like you when you were little!).” The crazy thing is that my husband is the complete opposite of both of us, he’s SUCH an introvert. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. With that being said, I wanted to share with y’all a couple of mommy tips that has helped me the past two years.
Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re not always going to have all the right answers…Simple as that. Just take one day at a time and go with what feels right. Everyday is a learning experience.
Me time. You HAVE to take care of yourself. Allow some “me” time. Whether it be getting your nails done, spa day, or a night-out with the gals…go take care of you so you don’t lose yourself.
Activities. Try to do one activity a week (especially, my 9 to 5 momma’s) so your child can stay social or active for that week. We love going to the park or indoor playground.
