    How To Be Considerate of a New Mom

    So before I had a baby, I obviously really didn’t know how to treat a new mom. What was most helpful to her? What did she need? What didn’t she need? What should I do for her? What should I not do for her? What should I ask? What do I dooooo? (Okay, to be honest, I didn’t really think about all of these things too much, but y’know. Some people do. Right?)

    10 Tips For Surviving Your Newborn

    Most people who don’t see me on a daily basis (everyone except my mom and my husband and maybe my in-laws) think I have it pretty together for being a new mom with a one-month-old child. I mean, they see me when I’m put-together, not at my house, and looking well-rested because it’s church and makeup does wonders for sleep deprivation. Plus, when I’m out amongst people, I want to look… not frazzled. When I have people over, I make sure the house is relatively tidy and I’m presentable for visitors. But I’ll be honest: today, even though I’ve washed a load of dishes and I got up at ten…
