I wish I had the survival guide to manage the brutal first weeks with a newborn when I had my first child. Yes, I spent most of my waking hours researching about fetal development, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and I even signed up to practically every pregnancy website I stumbled upon. However, nothing is as helpful when you talk to people that have done motherhood firsthand. Motherhood is hard and it is even harder when you’re doing it for the first time.
Do you feel like there are not enough meal ideas out there? Please tell me I am not alone on this one! The pressure is really on, Mama! I always struggle with what dish to prepare. My kids are not the picky kind and they enjoy almost everything I make, but I am not the best cook. My dish selection is so limited. I just stick to what I know my little family will appreciate. So when I discovered this easy pork tenderloin recipe, I was hooked!
You do all you can to perfect everything for your children’s sake. In spite your best efforts, you still fail. That is because no one is ever perfect. Not you. Not me. Not anyone. As moms, we love our children more than anything (even more than we love ourselves). We will do everything to keep them healthy and happy. However, we are only human (Though we think that we are superwomen at times!) and we make mistakes. Those mistakes don’t make us less of the striving parents that we are.
We always hear from our doctors that a fever is not a bad thing. It is just one sign that tells us the body is “waging a war against infection”. That doesn’t make it any better at all. As mothers, that statement always fails to give us comfort. Thus, I put together an article that tells us everything we need to know about it.
On my dad’s side of the family, we have a tradition. Growing up, I told myself that I would diligently follow that tradition to make the elders in my family happy. As soon as I knew I was pregnant, I immediately tracked the last letter used for naming the family’s newborn babies.
