Lessons in First Time Motherhood: Intro

I’m a first time mom to a wonderful little girl. Recently, I’ve been getting more questions from my friends who are about to embark on their first experience in motherhood and I realized I’m not a very detail oriented person when I’m talking. I always remember something else I should’ve said or mentioned when I get home. I’m a blogger. Why not write some posts about things that I’ve learned or words of encouragement that have helped me along the way? I’m new to this motherhood job so I have no doubt that (Lord willing) after I have another one my thoughts will change but we will cross that bridge when we get there.
Now that I am a full time mom I see my role as trying to conserve funds rather than make them. That means breastfeeding, cloth diapers, making my own baby food, and wisely spending. It is very easy to overspend on children and I’m hoping to be as minimalistic as possible.
Yes, I realize I have an incredibly laid back approach to parenting. There aren’t many situations where I was proactive and “ready to go”. I don’t freak out often. I’m pretty relaxed but I will admit I have had some meltdown moments. Parenting is not easy even when they are adorable little babies. It has definitely pushed me to my limits and breaking points. But I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat! I realize there are a lot of different opinions on parenting and what I write is what worked for me. It may not work for you. These are just my thoughts on being a first time mom. I know one day, years from now I will read this and laugh at myself. Let me start out by saying; I do not have all the answers. These are just my thoughts (and some opinions).This is my journey and the job that God has called me to in this season of life.
