Motherhood is an exclusive club full of people that have all learned a number of lessons about how to get through life with a child or two or three. We support each other and depend on each other for so much. There are new moms entering our club every day and I wanted to help them make the transition to motherhood by passing along some of the random tips I’ve picked up a long the way.
I’m also hoping that if you’re a mom and reading this that you’ll share your tips and tricks. We could all use the help I think. In about a week, I’ll create a printable version of this and will include all the tips that are provided just make sure to leave your Blog URL and/or Twitter handle so I can give you credit. Ok, here it goes:
1. Get Creative – Use the resources you have. E was a very difficult newborn. He required you to rock or walk him to sleep every night. He was also born in October which made the walking thing kind of challenging…so we got creative. If you’re fortunate enough like me to have a treadmill in your house, it might just become your new best friend. I can’t tell you how many nights we’d head downstairs and turn it on real low and just walk, and walk and walk some more. Soon enough he’d fall asleep and we’d be able to put him to bed. I always wondered if this need to be walked to sleep didn’t have something to do with all the working out I did when I was pregnant.
