The Isolation Phase: Being Mommy

Isolation is so easy to fall into. We get wrapped up in what is going on in our lives only to look up one day looking for a friendly face and not knowing who to call or turn to.
 

I know I was there…
 
For a very,
 
Very
 
Long time…
 
I felt insignificant, silly, unloved, unwanted, and the list could go on depending on the day. And you know what? The more moms I meet the more I realize it wasn’t and isn’t just me.
 
If you feel this way, you are not alone.
 
You are not insignificant.
You are not silly, unloved, or unwanted.
 
And I am so sorry that you are feeling all these things.
 
But let me encourage you that there are many people who are struggling through the same issues, so you have support!
 
Where can you get that support?
 
First off talk to your OBGYN or Midwife about how you are feeling. Be honest with them because you may need more than just talking with someone to start feeling like you again. And let me add there is no shame in asking for help!
 
Being a mom is tough and asking for help does not make you weak or a bad mom! You have to take care of you too! You can’t give from a well that has run dry.
 
Below is a list of other places that you can reach out to, to get connected with other moms.

Have you ever been frustrated about the fact that wearing anything pretty with a baby or toddler gets messy, or worse destroyed? I have been there many times! So many necklaces have been ripped off, bracelets broken, and jewelry chewed on.

When my daughter was 6 months, I finally gave up trying to look cute at all because I thought to myself, “Why bother? It will just get messed up anyways.” I also didn’t want her to be sucking on anything that could be harmful.

Then I found this wonderful company called Mommy Necklaces! These are meant for moms, grandmas, and daycare workers who work with little ones all the time. They are pretty and functional all in one. From nursing necklaces to teething necklaces, there is something for everyone.

img_20161003_180555

I love being a partner with this wonderful company! I am a raving fan when it comes to this product for SO MANY reasons!

And I promise you will never be bored with the selection! They come out with beautiful new necklaces and limited edition necklaces on a regular basis, so let’s just say I have a closet full!

There are several different styles to choose from depending on your needs and style.

Nursing Necklaces

I LOVE the Mommy Necklaces Nursing Necklace! My daughter and my son both loved to pull on my hair, grab onto my shirt and anything else that was in their reach. My Nursing Necklace has been a lifesaver when one of them wanted to lift up my shirt or rip off the blanket I was using to feed them in public because they had something to play with while they nursed. And look at how pretty it is! A little secret, I use this as a statement necklace with a solid shirt and jeans to dress up an otherwise boring outfit!

Teether Strands

I did not buy one of these until my son was born because I felt like it would look silly. I had seen so many teether necklaces that just looked weird being worn by a mom and then I finally tried this one and I love it! It is so pretty and I where it all the time. It is really nice now that my son is teething because I can have it on and he has a teether right there to sooth him while he is in the carrier or when I am holding him and trying to be at a play date for my daughter. No tears here!

Dangling Donuts

Dangling Donuts are awesome for fiddlers and toddlers who like to steal your jewelry. My daughter ALWAYS has to have a necklace when I pull one out of my closet. She is a real fashionista when it comes to jewelry and since she wants to be like mommy, I have gotten rid of almost all of my pre-baby jewelry because I like these so much and they are baby and toddler safe.

 

 

 

Locked Donuts

I would call the Locked Donuts my fashionable necklace. They are different than anything that I normally wear, but they are a real eye catcher. I cannot tell you how often I get compliments about my necklace and everyone is always shocked to know it is a baby-safe Mommy Necklace!

img_20161003_175300

Short Strands

Short Strands are my favorite everyday necklace. They are great when I have little bit in the Ergo because he can play, but still not lay on it when he falls asleep. My daughter wears these ones all the time as well because what little girl doesn’t like copying Mommy?

Faceted Rock

I discovered this one as a surprise! Every once in a while Mommy Necklaces does a fun sale where you buy 4 necklaces for $40 and tell them the color for a special surprise in the mail! It was so fun to get such a pretty necklace in my set!

Flat Rock

This one was also a surprise for me. I usually don’t like big jewelry, but these Flat Rocks go with tons of things! I love how I can dress up a plain outfit with it and still not be too dressy!

img_20161003_175539Accessories

 

Who doesn’t like to match? Or just have more fun things to wear?! I love the options for accessories because I can get a matching bracelet with the same awesome clasp that my kids can pull on and not worry about a million beads flying everywhere or with a stretchy band.

 

If you have little ones or need a gift for a friend or relative having a baby this is a great place to get the perfect gift! So why not start your collection today? Click here to visit Mommy Necklaces LLC

Helping Your Wife Through Postpartum Depression

 

I looked in the mirror and wanted to crawl under a rock. I hated the way my body looked, I hated how I felt, and I hated that I felt so empty and unhappy. The little sleep I was getting was probably part of it, but I was unaware that these feelings were really from Postpartum Depression. For six months, I struggled, refusing to take medication because I was nursing my daughter and the fear of hurting her with medicine was paralyzing. I was miserable and my husband couldn’t understand why I was unhappy. Finally, the fog started to clear and I didn’t feel so empty and sad anymore, but I wish I would have been wiser about what I could have done to make those first six months with my lovey baby better because most of it is still a blur.

 
 

Having a baby can be a crazy ride, and we were wiser with my son and started on medication before we left the hospital because I was already starting to feel the baby blues before he was born. However, I still was feeling how I felt the first time around and one night I had a meltdown. Right in the middle of our new kitchen, in our new house, with a new baby, I lost it. I started to cry as my husband tried to figure out what was wrong. I explained that I hated my body and I just wanted to hide under the soft covers until I felt better. Luckily we went into the doctor for my six week appointment a few days later and my husband and I explained how I felt to my OBGYN. She hugged me and said that she sees people all day that say the same thing and that I was not alone. I was prescribed a little higher dose and I started to feel better. This is not just something that can happen with your first child, it can show up, or not show up, with every pregnancy.

 
 

Nevertheless, those days of being in a fog of sadness and dismay, was not just difficult for me, but for my husband as well. As a husband, it is important to be there for your wife and to let her know how important she is. Here are some ways to help drive that home. You may have to tell her she is beautiful and that you love her a million times before you see a glimmer of it sinking in, but keep on keeping on. Remember that the adorable baby you brought home needs her every second and the puke, poop, and pee that she wears much of the day does not make her feel glamorous.

 
 

1. Remind her that there is no super mom
As women we tend to compare ourselves to EVERYONE else and the media and social media doesn’t help that feeling. There is always that mom who seems to take her kids to every event, have a great marriage, and look amazing all of the time. Remind your wife that it is easy to make life look a certain way on social media and that most people will not post the poop covered sheets the baby just managed to cover.

 
 
2. Tell her she is loved
We forget really easily. I remember when I first had our son and my husband was working late how I felt like he didn’t love me because he never seemed to have time for me now. Of course that wasn’t the case at all, he was just tired from working so many hours, but that is how I felt no matter how unreasonable it sounds now. Keep telling her all the time and take a few extra moments to show her affection that is not from a screaming infant or toddler crawling all over her.

 
 
3. Keep an eye on her emotions and how she is doing
Most women I have talked to are afraid to admit they are depressed. I was so afraid that people would think I was crazy for saying I was depressed because I really thought that being a mom was easy and that I could do it all. If your wife seems to be down all the time or mentions wanting to hurt herself or others talk to her about seeing her OBGYN. There is no shame in taking medication. Hormones are crazy, they have to get back into balance after you have a baby, and this can be hard sometimes. Talking to her OBGYN will give you both a good idea of the options and she may just need to talk to someone.

 
 
4. Make sure she has time to be alone
One of the things that I wish I would have been better at is finding time for myself. I always felt like the kids needed me, the house was dirty, etc, etc, etc. And I would get bitter when my husband had his time away at night to decompress from work. I was working too! Why didn’t I get a break! Well to be honest, I was never taking a break. I had to realize that the house would always need something done and that it was okay to let my husband take the reigns and figure out how to soothe a crying baby and toddler at the same time. Your wife may need you to help her see that though. Give her the keys to the car and tell her to go somewhere she enjoys. When we didn’t have a lot of money just going to the store to get groceries for the week alone was refreshing! Help her find an outlet like going to the gym, getting groceries, or taking a class at night once a week.

 
 

 
 

5. Take up a few more chores
If there is one thing on this list you should do it is this one. Please, for your wife, your kids, and your marriage, help your wife more around the house. We know you go to work, we know you are tired, we know the last thing you want to do is have more work when you come home, but she is going to need more help now that there is a baby around. Whether your wife works, stays at home, or works from home she is still working all day too. When we first got married my husband had two jobs take out the trash and clean the bathroom. Now that we have kids he helps in whatever ways he can. Baby has a dirty diaper? Change it and empty the diaper pail. The laundry is piling up? Start a load of laundry. The littlest things like emptying or filling the dishwasher can make a world of difference and it will make the weight of being a mom and being depressed a little lighter.

6. Make time for date nights
This one was really hard for us because we didn’t live close to family and a babysitter is expensive! Try to swap with a friend, you watch their kids and they can watch yours. It’s a win-win because two couples get a date night without the expense of a sitter. You can also put the kids to bed early. We did this with our first two because both times we had recently moved and knew no one to ask to babysit. Yes, this is not the most glamorous of dates, but you don’t have to worry about dressing up and you can have dessert first. ☺

 
 
7. Finally, write her notes
There is something about being able to read that someone loves you again and again, especially on the bad days. My husband wrote one that on the front says, “Who is Kabrina?” and on the back he wrote what makes me, me, like beautiful, good mom, great wife, etc. We also got a cute box from Michaels that we put love notes in to each other. Here is a similar one on Amazon as well as a set of three. I love that they look like books! Classy right?

 
 

 
 

This is a very joyous, but difficult time for a family. You are adjusting to a new person in your lives, whether it is the first or fourth, give yourself grace. You are doing great! Encourage your wife as she adjusts physically, emotionally, and mentally. Before you know it you will have your groove back and be looking back thankful that you were there for each other!

Let me know what you have found helpful and any other ideas that you have for helping your wife, or that helped you through depression.

 

Seven Wonders of the Pregnancy World

 

*This post contains affiliate links that help me keep bringing you free content.
 

I have been sitting on this post for awhile because I am crazy busy being a Mommy to a very lively toddler (read about surviving pregnancy the second time here) and trying to run my business before I have to take a break when baby #2 comes along. But, I have been thinking about all the wonderful things pregnancy brings, as well as all the beautiful things people have created to make our lives easier. I compiled this list in no order, but I think you will agree that these seven things are pretty amazing.

 

1. Zofran

 

If you have been super nauseous during pregnancy, like me, you have probably been prescribed some form of Zofran. I love, what we call, the puky pill! It was a life saver with my daughter when I had to still get up and go to college and work like an adult and when I have to teach classes now. My Mother-in-Law always says she wishes they would have had a magic pill when she was pregnant. But, she did give really good advice on how to throw-up into your purse with discretion.

 

2. Tylenol

 

Back pain anyone? When my weight shifted in both pregnancies I was in a lot of pain the first few weeks and Tylenol was what saved me from laying in bed crying because I couldn’t pick up my screaming toddler.

 

3. Pregnancy Body Pillow

 

This is an AWESOME invention that makes sleeping possible! I was skeptical the first time around, but after I wore the pillow in, it was and is wonderful. I love that I can move it in a million different ways to ease pain and that I can lay in almost the same position on either side without flipping the pillow back and forth. This is super convenient for me because I get restless at night sometimes and like to be able to lay on whatever side I choose. Check out the pillow that I bought by clicking on the photo below.

 

 

4. Antacids

 

This pregnancy, I LOVE savory foods like tomatoes and pasta, but I could die from the heartburn that they make for. I live with Tums in my purse because I don’t want to be tasting what I ate for the next several hours and have a puky feeling from it. And if you don’t have heartburn while you are pregnant, count yourself blessed!

 

5. The Baby Kicking

 

Being pregnant is not my favorite past time, however, I love feeling the baby move around inside me. It is one of those weird things you have to experience to realize how wonderful and awesome it is. It is really cool when your husband and toddler can start feeling those little movements too. My husband said that is when it really became real that we were having a baby because he could experience it too.

6. Prenatal Vitamins

 

I know that these don’t seem like a big deal and I will be the first to admit I forget to take them sometimes, but they can make you feel better. During those first few months of feeling sick, or your whole pregnancy, taking them at different times during the day can help ease the nausea. I liked taking mine at night because it made it easier to take them as well as made me feel better in the morning. Taking them in the morning was not an option because I had a version of pregnancy called all day sickness, whoever titled it morning sickness lied! Ask your doctor about good times to take your prenatal based on how you are feeling.

 

7. Holding your baby for the first time

 

I was so nervous when I got to see my daughter for the first time. It was like meeting a celebrity that you had talked about for months meeting and it was finally happening! My husband and I both had no idea what to say and kept repeating, “Hi baby! I love you! Hi!” like we were star struck teenagers. But when that little precious face looked up at me and smiled, I was in love forever. I wish I would have had someone taking pictures of that moment because I can remember it, but I would love to see it on my wall in a frame.

3 Ways to Ease Constipation During Pregnancy

 

 

I don’t know about you, but for me, pregnancy equals constipation. Being able to poop like a normal person is such a wonderful thing that we (or maybe just I) took for granted before pregnancy. My first pregnancy, I had no idea that there was issues down there and didn’t feel comfortable talking about it to anyone to ask for help, so I suffered through it. I did find some ways to help get things moving down there that I hope will assist you in your journey to bathroom bliss. Note: If you are having these issues please try these suggestions, but PLEASE talk to your doctor about it as well. These are all opinions of my own and you try these at your own risk. You can read my whole discloser policy here.
water-bottle-962934_1280
1. Drink Lots of Water.
I know everyone is telling you this, but it is harder than it sounds. Drinking as much water as they want you to during pregnancy takes resolve. I always felt like all I did was have a water bottle strapped to my mouth and my doctor STILL told me I wasn’t drinking enough water, so make a plan. Ask your doctor how much water you should be drinking for your situation because it may be more than Google suggests.

2. Put Lemon in Your Water

Fruit is amazing at making things better in our bodies. Lemon in your water has many benefits, but helping ease your constipation is one of them. Try slicing a large lemon and placing it in a pitcher of water. Place another slice or two in a glass and sip on that all day since you have to drink as much water as a camel anyways.

milkshake-1021027_1280

3. Make Yourself a Smoothie

I love Jamba Juice, but going there everyday gets a little pricey, so I started making my own Strawberry Wild smoothie at home. There are some great recipes out there on Pinterest so find one that you like and make one everyday. I am partial to easy and fast so I chose a banana strawberry mix. (Click here to get the recipe)

Did any of these suggestions work for you? Have your tried something else that we should know about?

How to be Pregnant with a Toddler Under Two and Survive

 

 

Let’s start with the obvious, while you are throwing up and have a little person watching you gibbering things you don’t understand; pregnancy is A LOT harder the second time around.

With your first child, you read the cute advice people blogged about sleeping when you could, having an excuse to not do anything strenuous, and getting to eat whatever you want for two and blaming it on the adorable little human growing inside your belly.

Well, as I am sure you are finding out, sleeping is over rated (even though you could collapse with pregnancy and toddler exhaustion), having a toddler and picking them up or walking them up and down stairs IS strenuous, and whenever you have food in front of you most of it goes to the toddler who acts like you haven’t fed them in a week, even though they ate twenty minutes ago. Being a Mommy now seems more difficult than ever, so how can you survive it?

baby-1151348_1920

1. Put your toddler to bed early.

This may sound like obvious advice as well as difficult if your little one enjoys staying up late, but try it. Start by starting bedtime a half hour earlier every three nights until you get to the desired time. Before we were married, my husband and I were being mentored by a couple with three kids. When 7pm rolled around, all three were in bed and we were like, “Man, this is an early bedtime!” We found out though, that it can save your sanity, give you some much needed time alone to rest or go to the bathroom by yourself (THAT NEVER HAPPENS!), and help your marriage. And, guess what? Our little girl is in bed by 6:30pm every night!

2. When you have some alone time, don’t feel like you need to make the house look good.

If you are anything like me, you are reading this blog to find ways to be the most productive you can with the little energy and time you possess. However, you have to remember that you do have a lot less energy right now.

Give yourself a break!

I know there are dishes in the sink and the laundry looks like it may never end, but slow down! When that new bundle of preciousness pops out, you are going to get even less done so learn this lesson now, enjoy the moments with your toddler because the laundry and dishes will always be there.

Write yourself a list of things you want to accomplish, but don’t expect them to get done all in one day. Set a goal to get two reasonably sized tasks done during the day and if you get more done than two give yourself a pat on the back, but don’t stress over it.

Your husband and your toddler love you and, honestly, probably don’t mind the mess they are making anyways. (And if hubby does mind, hand him the list and he can check off a few for you. Give and take right?) TAKE A BREAK and do what helps you relax. You still are carrying another baby, even though you have more to do this time.

3. Give your husband chores.

My husband works A LOT, so when we got pregnant while nursing and on birth control, I didn’t want him to feel like coming home meant more work.

So I did EVERYTHING and if something went by the wayside, like spending enough time with my toddler, I felt like the worst person on the planet.

My house was clean, but my little girl went to bed without having the quality time she needed from Mommy and Daddy didn’t get home until after she was asleep. The honest truth is, you got into this together and you have to work together. That is marriage! Love each other, be there for each other, and help each other with what needs to get done because if you don’t someone is always going to either be bitter because they do everything or upset because the, visible never ending, mess of having a little kid is always there.

After a long conversation on what we both wanted to see or needed done, my husband and I agreed that I focus on dishes and laundry and he takes out the trash and cleans the bathroom while we share vacuuming duty. Let me tell you though, just because your jobs get done doesn’t mean the bathroom will get cleaned every week (or that it got clean once in four months) and you have to let it go and tell your husband when there are no bowls to wash one. ☺

woman-423608_19204. Whether you work or stay home, get out by yourself, even if only for a few minutes.

Being a mostly stay-at-home mom with a part-time (and a half) job, I am right in the middle of both worlds so I understand that there seems to be no time no matter which world you are in.

However, you need a moment where you don’t have to meet a deadline and you don’t have a toddler on your leg. Even if you don’t have a lot of money for pampering (we sure didn’t), treat yourself to coffee or a meal at a restaurant by yourself or with a close friend so that you don’t feel overwhelmed.

I have been really bad about this one, so I am preaching to the choir, but I love to go to Starbucks or the craft store and either get myself a coffee/tea or buy some fun craft I want to try during my “I put my baby to sleep early time” (or both).

Pampering yourself with little things doesn’t have to be pricey. Be wise about your budget, but put a little money aside for you and your husband for spending money each month (Read my post on how to have fun on a small budget here). Even if you only get $10 a piece, that is enough for coffee or a meal with a friend.

brushing-teeth-787630_1920

5. Start teaching your toddler small ways to help and take care of themselves.

I know that sweet toddler was JUST a baby and is still your baby, but this will serve you well now and when you are feeding your new baby ALL THE TIME. We started our daughter off watching Daniel Tiger, which is a blessing from heaven!

They have cute songs about being a big helper and what it is like having a new baby come into the family. (Seriously, watch this clip and buy the DVD about his baby coming here. You can thank me later.)

At first we sang the songs together and when my daughter did a task that we asked like placing a stuffed toy in her toy box or not shutting the door, we praised her. Soon we added in little plastic drawers so that she could learn that everything has a place, and then we showed her where those places were. This does not happen over night and will take months of patients, but when your toddler can put all her dolls in the doll drawer and can find the blocks she is in love with you will be grateful. (If you would like to see our set-up click here.)

If you have been a Mommy to a small toddler while pregnant or are in the swing of it what would you suggest? Did you try any of or all of the suggestions above? Did they work for you? I love hearing what worked and what didn’t and any other opinion or advice you have so always feel free to comment or contact me.

When Enough is Not Enough: Fighting to be Mommy

 

At the request of my mother-in-law my husband, daughter and I tagged along to a party with some of her lifelong friends. The promise of good food, no dishes, and leaving early for bedtime sounded like a great idea to an almost seven month pregnant Mama and an overworked Daddy.
 

My mother-in-law had asked me to make some decorated sugar cookies for the party like I had the year before and, since there was free food and $150 involved, I agreed. Everyone loved the cookies and was very excited about the cute bunnies, lambs, and chicks that decorated the silver tray.
 

However, a complement soon turned into a Mommy bash when the hostess said, “Kabrina, you have to go to pastry school! We all love your cookies and they are so cute! You can’t be a stay-at-home mom forever! It’s a waste of your talent!” I tried really hard to let it run off my back like the baby oil I put on my daughter at night, but it stuck…
 
for days…
 

it stuck.
 
Her words and my mother-in-law reminding her that I finished my degree through a pregnancy and a half kept replaying in my head because I knew, many people thought I was wasting my time on my children and my start-up business.

I knew, many people thought I was wasting my time on my children and my start-up business. Click To Tweet

This wasn’t the first time I had heard something similar, but in the heat of being pregnant and my husband bringing up that he had wanted to retort back later that evening made it sting just a little more. It was as if our family planning, for me to stay home and raise however many children we decided to have, was a mistake and we had missed a valuable piece of information along our research path.

Now don’t get me wrong being a stay-at-home mommy is wonderful, but is DEFINETLY not all I do. If you have been following my blog for any amount of time you can see that I started my entrepreneur lifestyle with a camera in hopes of becoming a full-time photographer, and then moved on to a more viable start-up teaching American Sign Language classes along with writing this blog that supports sensory and ASL. So as you can see I don’t get to just play and clean my house all day, which is what everyone who is not a stay-at-home mom imagines us doing. And whether you blog, work part-time, or just stay at home it is still not butterflies and roses to be a Mommy.

I want to encourage you though! You are a wonderful, needed, exceptional part of this world! You are a mom! You are strong! And what other people think right now in the poopy diapers, long nights, missed romances, throw-up, and exhaustion time of being a mom doesn’t matter.

 

What other people think right now in the poopy diapers, long nights, missed romances, throw-up, and exhaustion time of being a mom doesn’t matter. Click To Tweet

You are doing something that only you can do, raising YOUR children. Yes, it can be thankless work, but there will be moments like your little one being attached to you at the hip and laying their sweet little head on your shoulder every time you hold them, that you can never replace with job success or more money. It may take longer to buy a house or get into a place that is your dream home, but those sweet pleases and thank yous that you have been teaching and showing everyday will pay off.

 

I’m not saying you have to be a stay-at-home mom forever, but don’t miss the sweet moments that drip like honey from time with your kids. Not everyone has the opportunity to do what you do, and not everyone is built for it. But even if you are an OCD overachiever, in need of fulfilling work like me, take a step back and watch you baby sleep, go to the park, take it all in as they asked to be ticked one more time because these are precious moments that they will outgrow and you will miss.

 

But also dream big! You have lots of potential and being a mommy is adding to what you can do. Think about it, if you were not good at conflict resolution, with siblings, you are now! You may have had no idea about empathy before you had kids, but now you can understand where people are coming from, from a whole new light. It’s like Atticus Finch said in To Kill a Mockingbird, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view […] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” And don’t we do that everyday?

 

Finally, don’t compare yourself to other women; moms or not. When you look at someone’s life on social media or in a coffee shop conversation, you are getting the super, “How do I look to the world” edited version. You will never know how many nights she went to bed exhausted, only to get up an hour later for work or how her marriage is flimsy at best, although he brings home what they need and she sells her beautiful masterpieces on Etsy. Just like you may view your talents as something menial (Well I can do it so anybody can) they aren’t.
 
Think about it this way, there are more than one kind of company that sells smart phones. You may prefer Apple over Android, and others will prefer Android over Apple, but they make the same type of thing. Each business brings a certain value to their customer that only they can bring in their way. If you prefer one over the other you may disagree, but if another famous person would have only thought about all the rejection and hurtful things people said he would have never created the empire we know today as Disney.
 
Walt Disney was rejected for a business loan by 302 bankers before he finally got the money needed, and, when he was younger, was fired from the Kansas City Star because his editor thought he lacked creativity.
 
In hindsight we all can see he knew what he was doing and followed his dreams, but he also made mistakes along the way.

Give yourself a break, you may be super mom, but you are still human.
