I have learned so much from other mama bloggers.
I've learned that many of the struggles, challenges and joys we mamas face are universal. There's camaraderie in that--having a shared experience. I've also learned about great toys, books and gear to help me along the way.
When I first started blogging, I made this gigantic list of stuff that I thought was the most useful stuff for expectant twin mamas to put on their registries. The girls were only a few months old when I wrote it, so being a bit more seasoned now, I'm not sure that list would look the same if I wrote it today.
My intention in writing the list, was to encourage and give advice to future twin mamas, who, maybe like me, walked in to Babies R Us, and hyperventilated from the bazillion choices that store holds.
Over the past months there have been toys or books or baby gear that I've thought: I bet this would be helpful for some mama somewhere to know about.
So, I came up with Mama Loves.
Every Saturday I will post Mama Loves: one or several things that have helped make "mama-ing" just that much better during the week.
I realize, that what I have to say isn't going to be helpful for all mamas. So that's where you come in, dear readers! (I'm super excited about this!)
Here's how I'd love to see this work:
Each week share with us:
- a toy or book that captivates your child(ren)
- gear you just can't live without
- a recipe your choosy toddler gobbles down
- a parenting book that you've found perspective changing
- an activity that wears your kid out
- an outfit that flatters your post-baby body and makes you feel fabulous
To share your wisdom with us, you can do one of two things:
- Link up a blog post with your Mama Loves here.
- Leave your Mama Loves in the comment section.
You don't even need to be a mama to participate. If you of know of something genius and helpful, please share!
So, that's it. You can participate one time, every week, or anything in between. Come, share; read, learn.
And spread the word! No sign-up or membership required.
I'm looking forward to hearing what all of you have to say, and gaining wisdom from your words.
Won't you join me in sharing your Mama Loves?
See you next Saturday!
