Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

They say when you become a parent for the first time, you are extra cautious. You have top-of-the-line everything from your diapers to the stroller. The hottest baby gadgets to hit the market fill your home. Every baby book is read from cover to cover. Every sharp corner is cushioned and stairway gated. Come your second, things get a bit more lax. Whoops – the pacifier fell on the floor, but there is no need to worry, for the 5 second rule is always in effect. Somehow, our family did things backwards. Our first daughter was born and people would comment on how relaxed…

Before getting married and having kids, my husband and I had a lot of opinions about certain parental topics and child-raising techniques. Believe me, if I could go back in time and tell us to STFU, I would. It’s humorous to even believe that we were this naive before we became parents and how strongly we felt about a few topics back then.

Hasta La Vista, Pacifier…..Or Not

0

My girl Ava has been completely obsessed with her Mimi aka pacifier, since we got home from the hospital 2 years ago. We always knew the day would come where we’d have to take it away from her so we don’t have to spend thousands in orthodontia work when shes a teen.

0

Seriously, I am asking. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU DO?! For about a month now, we have been having issues with getting and staying dressed. Mornings usually consist of me exerting all my daily energy into just getting her dressed. Then followed by the ripping off of said clothes I spent a good 10 minutes trying to put on.

Here in Florida, all the kids are on spring break so the tot lot was a mad house! Jammed packed with kids running, jumping, pretty much doing any and everything with…
