I wrote this post on new mom fears a while ago. At the time I wasn’t sure if I wanted to publish it. I thought I would share it in light of mother’s day to encourage other moms on the journey of motherhood.
As a new mom, I remember having many fears before having my daughter. Now more than a year later I know my fears were nothing to worry about.
At the time I didn’t want to be only a mom. Leading up to this moment I had been Courtney. A married young woman finishing up her university degree. She was an autonomous adult.
Yet ever since another human life inhabited my body I haven’t been the same person. I lost some of the previous version of myself. It wasn’t until my postpartum days I realized this change. At the time I was not only coping with the presence of a baby but the partial loss of my previous self.
In this post, I am going to show you how I meal plan for my family for the week. Our family consists of myself, my husband and our one-year-old daughter. My husband works 12-hour shifts so I also make meals for his lunch.
As a stay at home mom one of the ways I take care of my family is by working hard to save us money. The best and easiest way I have found to save money on groceries is through ordering online and price matching.
If you are unfamiliar with how to order groceries online or how to price match this post is for you!
Although trials are a part of life they are still unpleasant. However, the Bible does give us the warning to be prepared for them. A few weeks ago in church, our pastor preached on the topic of trials.
He shared that if one is not going through a trial, one is coming up. As depressing as that was to hear, I knew it was true.
To support a new mom is to support her need to care and provide for her baby. The next most important person to a baby is the father. Everyone else’s role should be to support the new family. In this post, I will outline some practical ways to help a new family while promoting bonding between the baby and parents.
In my undergraduate, I studied the Family, therefore, I hold the view that attachment bonds are very important to cultivate in early childhood.
