5 Ways I'm A Super Safety Mom (And Proud Of It)

It's been a little over 3 years now that I've been annoying people with my cautiousness. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with my son, I've just been really obsessed with keeping him alive, ya know? I wouldn't let people smoke anywhere near me when I was pregnant, I didn't lift anything heavy, eat deli meat, and I didn't drink caffeine. 

My cautiousness carried over to my new found motherhood, and will probably be with me my entire life. Here are 5 ways I'm a proud super safety mom:

5 Ways Comparing Myself to Other Mothers Has Made me a Better Mom

Is comparison the thief of joy? Maybe, but only if you let it be.

I think comparison is a healthy tool we can use to improve ourselves. We constantly see posts about not comparing ourselves to other people and how damaging that can be, but I think it's all in how you look at it. Instead of feeling down on ourselves, why not be inspired and strive to improve?

Ice Cream & Open Houses

Growing up in a small town means you need to make your own fun. Teenagers party in fields, or drive around aimlessly looking for something to do. Mothers take their kids to swimming holes or local parks on hot days. It's a kind of slow, sleepy bliss that's simultaneously exhilarating and magical. You don't really notice how special those days were until you get older, and move away.

One of my favorite childhood summer memories wasn't running through a sprinkler, or having a picnic at the park. It was a tradition that my mom started, without even realizing she was creating something special at all.

Mabel's Labels Review!

Is anyone else sick of losing their child's belongings? I know I am. My son goes to preschool, and although the teachers there are amazing and 99% of the time don't lose his things, sometimes unlabeled items get sent home with us by accident, or a new teacher accidentally sends something home with the wrong child. It happens- we're only human.

Up until now I've been labeling Mason's items with permanent marker- which turns out isn't so permanent and comes off of his cups almost every time I wash them. Who wants to re-label their kids stuff all the time? Not this mama.

My Review of The Maritime Basket!

I'm really excited today to be sharing my review of the beautiful Maritime Basket by Sewcialite on Etsy. Let me start off by saying that the owner of this shop is an absolute dream to work with. She's a hard working mama of 2, and you can read a little bit more about her life on her blog here:

I was really impressed by the fact that she hand makes all of these baskets, bowls, and other rope products at home- and they're really great quality.
