Welcome to

[bigletter]In honor of Mother’s Day, I want to highlight two new mommy’s that graduated this spring with their bachelor’s degrees. There are a number of women who accomplish this feat every year, but these are the two stories that stuck out to me. Plus, they’re from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and I LOVE my Coast girls! Another reason why their story resonated with me is because not only did they have to deal with delivering their child in the middle of their FINAL semester of senior year, but they encountered roadblocks that many of us can relate to, and some that we can not even fathom. Allow me to introduce them.[/bigletter]

Real Women, Real Moms, Real Accomplishments: Mother’s Day Edition

I’ve been a new mommy for almost six months now. If it weren’t for my top six everyday essentials, I would not make it through the day. These are essentials that I, as a mother, need on a daily basis. They are essential to life. Most “Mother’s Day Essentials” lists are uniform no matter where you do your research. Clothes, purses, jewelry, flowers, etc. As a new mom, all of those gifts would be lovely, but they are not what is going to get me through the day. If you’re wondering what to get a new mommy friend of yours for Mother’s Day, then here are a few suggestions.

Top 6 Mother’s Day Essentials: How I Survive Mom Life

[bigletter]On March 17th, I boarded an airplane for the first time with my 4-month-old. I knew nothing about traveling with infants. Either way, I hopped on the plane with one extra-full backpack on my back, one arm occupied by a 13 lb. infant, and the other carrying a Boppy pillow, a blanket, and a tiny baby backpack, with a pacifier, hooked around my index finger. I shuffled down the aisle in a single file line along with the other parents traveling with infants and children. The passengers already sitting watched with awe and annoyance as the parade of babies and children that they would be traveling with for the next two hours passed by.[/bigletter]

Expecting and Employment: Finding a Job During Pregnancy

[bigletter]This Easter was a special holiday, much like all of Jaxon’s “first holidays.” However, anytime Mommy and Daddy get to spend time with Jax together as a family is considered special. For those who don’t know, Dad attends school 5 hours away from us. Luckily, all of Jaxon’s big holidays were spent with both of his parents. For Easter, we took family photos. If you know anything about taking pictures with boys and men, then you KNOW how difficult it is to do.[/bigletter]

Easter 2017 Recap

[bigletter]Before I even became pregnant, I knew that I wanted to one day breastfeed. My immediate family is extremely small. Unfortunately, breastfeeding was not something any of us was familiar with. I saw, however, through social media how strong of a bond mothers had with their children while breastfeeding. So when my time came, I knew I had to try it. During my pregnancy, I had researched as much as I possibly could about breastfeeding. I spoke with my OB-GYN, and I even went to visit a lactation consultant. I knew the benefits, and also some risks. This is my breastfeeding story for the first 4 months of Jaxon’s life.[/bigletter] 

My Breastfeeding Story – Months 1-4

[bigletter]When it comes to being a mother, our top priority is raising a healthy child. It is the sole reason why I chose to breastfeed. After seeing the bond my sister and nephew formed, I was sold. I also paid close attention to the health benefits of breastfeeding. All things considered, I was convinced that this was the best choice for my little boy. I found out that nursing your child is not only beneficial for your baby but for your body as well. I can also credit most of my “bounce-back” body to breastfeeding. So, allow me to tell you about my experience in breastfeeding, and then I’ll hit you with the facts.[/bigletter]

The Benefits of Breastfeeding

“That’s not how you hold your baby.” “Your baby should NOT be sleeping in the same bed as you!” “The car seat buckle needs to be higher.” “Breastfeeding in public is just a cry for attention.” And on. And on. And on. STOP mom shaming! I and countless others have been the subject of “mom shaming” on the internet. Mom-shaming is when someone judges, shames, or scolds a mother for something that they are doing with their child/children. But why?

When it comes to social media, sometimes a picture is simply a picture. We only show what we want other people to see. Most people, like myself, post pictures of our children because they’re adorable, and we want to share our child’s adorable-ness with others. They’re either playing, crying, learning how to do something new, or just having fun. But usher in the mom-shamers inundating the comment section with unsolicited advice, opinions, and general nastiness. I know the saying goes, “if you put it on the internet, then anyone can have an opinion.” But the other saying goes, “if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.”
