Hey Mamas - Mother's Day Special

Hey mamas! This month we’re mixing it up a bit. Instead of delivering tips for taking care of your littles, I wanted to make this newsletter all about you. We’re a couple of weeks out from Mother’s Day which means there is still plenty of time to prepare. This newsletter is all about making sure you get the day you deserve. Growing up my mom considered Mother’s Day the highest of holidays. We always did something to celebrate. Admittedly, I never really understood how she could rank MD above...

Hey mamas! Happy March! How are y’all? Does anyone else feel like this year is already starting to fly by?! We are 2 months out from welcoming our second baby and I cannot fathom where the time has gone. I’m always looking to my community of moms for recommendations on what topics to cover that would be the most helpful. Which car seats and strollers we own and why we chose them is one of those topics I get asked about on repeat. These purchases have been some of my most fraught as a new mom....

Hey mamas! Happy New Year! Yay, to making it through the holidays, travel, and all the stress that December seems to bring. Personally, I feel like it’s taken me the last couple of weeks just to settle back into reality. Our tree finally came down along with the rest of our Christmas decorations. All of Libby's new toys have been broken in and put away. And, a resolve to make up for all the holiday indulging has officially taken hold. In short, January has finally found its footing and its...

Hey mamas! Wow! We are officially in year 2 of this newsletter. For all of those who have joined me these past 12 months, thank you for being a part of the journey. I hope you’ve found it to be a small help in your parenting adventure. And for those of you who have referred other mamas along the way, I greatly appreciate your help in growing this community. To close out 2022, I wanted to hit you with an exciting update, a slightly new format, and as always, as many tips and helpful bits as I...

Hey mamas! This month I want to hit on a hot topic - baby safety and baby proofing. We’re long into the process of securing our home and there is still so much more I continue to learn! To that end, I am going to lead you to the experts on these topics so you can fully trust that the advice you are receiving is sound. My goal, as always, is to help make that information easier to find and ideally to digest. Amongst all topics I’ve researched for my own parenting, this is the one that has led...

Hey mamas! When it came time to write this month’s newsletter, there were so many topics on the table. It’s incredible how much you learn while growing into the role of new parent. Every few months (weeks even!) the rules change, the routines evolve, and the needs look different. I am constantly discovering things I didn’t know I needed to know. If you’re new here, hi, I’m Jen! My goal is to bring you along on my journey. Everyday I’m figuring out what mamahood looks like. As I do, I hope to...

Hey mamas! I'm coming to you this month from yet another destination. We’re posting up in Lake Arrowhead about 1.5 hours outside of Los Angeles for all of August. Let’s just say our Southern California souls haven’t adapted to the triple degree temps Austin Summers relentlessly deliver. We had to escape! At this point Libby is growing into a semi-pro traveler (frequent flyer mile account and all!). She did amazing on the flights and settled right into the new time zone. If you also have...

Hey mamas! This month I’m turning the focus to one of my favorite topics, fitness. I’ve been a Lululemon loving, gym-going, group fitness class gal for a very long time now. Working out was a daily practice before I was pregnant, while I was pregnant, and as soon as I was doctor approved post-pregnancy. I teach a cardio & sculpt class at a local studio and plan to get certified in postpartum instruction as well. All of that to say, hang onto your hats ladies, I’m about to totally nerd out on...

Hey mamas! I’m coming to you this month from Spain! We’ve packed up the family and headed to the Spanish coast for a month-long stay for the second time. With that, and the approach of Memorial Day weekend, I have all things Summer on my mind. I’ve previously shared my tips for traveling with a baby (Part 1, Part 2) so this newsletter is dedicated to pool time. I’m diving into (pun intended) my favorite products and as always, sharing the tips I’ve picked up along the way. SWIM SAFETY Otteroo...

Hey mamas! I’m so excited to bring you this month’s newsletter. Y’all know I started this email to bring you access to all of the tips and resources I’ve picked up as I’ve ventured into mamahood. My files are stocked with checklists and cheat sheets that have helped me keep #momlife manageable. And this month, wow, I think I’m dishing out two of my best resources yet. This newsletter is brought to you in partnership with Bambino, the first of those amazing resources. They’ve been a total life...
