Hi friends! It's been a minute since I have written a post! This year has been flying by with a lot going on , but I don't want to unload all that just yet. Today, I'm sharing 13 gift ideas for your mom. Since, Mother's Day is almost a week away, now is the time to nail down your gift. I came up with ideas that I think will suite all sorts of moms and various budgets. Most of the gifts below are $50 or less, with a few under $20. My splurge-worthy picks are quality pieces that can be used for years and years.
How do you know when you're ready for motherhood? It is certainly a valid question. After all, you can't order a baby, try it out and return it or press a "pause" to wait for a better time to care for the child. In our society, we see plenty of pregnancy announcements, but people often don't talk about what led up to that moment. So, when I asked on Instagram what questions you all had for me about motherhood, maybe I shouldn't have been surprised to get this question from a lot of people. Wondering if I was ready for motherhood was something I thought a lot about in the years leading up to having our son. So, today I'm going to share more about what that looked like for me and how I knew I was ready.
There’s a lot of tips, advice and products focused on taking care of your newborn, but before Liam was born I found it difficult to find real accounts and meaningful information about what to expect for new mom life and how to prepare for postpartum. So, today I’m opening up about life as a new mom. If you're expecting your first child, just had your first or know someone who is, I hope this shines a little light on what it can be like.
