Some Mama Reads to Encourage and Inspire!
How was your week, Mama? Ours was good as we’re starting to get back into our post-snow -day and -sickness routine. Plus I had two AWESOME parent-teacher conferences for my Priscilla and Sawyer. *Proud Mama right here!* Have a busy week ahead? Here are my favorite Mama Reads to get you through…
My Favorite Mama Reads for the Week Ahead:
- Are You Caught in Extreme Parenting – This is such a great article! I love that it reminds us to not obsess so much about our parenting decisions.
“In a world swirling with parenting advice, it’s easy to get caught up in extremes and forget that finding flexibility and balance is actually more important.”
- 4 Tips for Creating a Strong Sibling Bond – One of my favorite parts of being a parent of 3 is watching the interaction and love between my children. I love Amanda’s concept of a family as a “team” and her tips for encouraging sibling bonding.
“Children learn best by example and that starts with the parents. My husband and I always support each other first. Sometimes it is simple in sharing household duties, other times attending an awards ceremony for the other, but we always show our support to each other.”
- For All the Moms of Toddlers – Oh yes. Just YES.
“Parenting a toddler will do that to you—encourage you to pray. Encourage you to try harder. And motivate you to empathize. Parenting a toddler forces you to see things through the eyes of a little boy who just wants to be like mommy. A little boy who just wants to live life like a free spirit.”
- Finding Moments of Peace in Every Day – I’ve been working on this lately. Have you?
“Especially as women, I think, we’re always concerned with how to get everything done for everyone else. And if there’s time left over, we’ll take care of ourselves. But the problem is, there never is any time left over. There’s always something else to do.”
