Mom to Mom

Monday, September 22, 2008

This one is dedicated to a truly amazing friend! Megan really doesnt get enough credit for the awesome woman that she is. Chad left today for Houston for an entire month. She called me, and Caleb has been upset and going through some awful phase. Megan, not only absorbed my verbal vomit, as if she didnt have issues of her own, gave me some amazing advice and then she met me at Target for some shopping then Chick-fil-a for some lunch and entertainment. And by entertainment I mean Caleb with a Biter-Biscuit. Anyone who has seen a child with one of these wonderful inventions knows what I mean by entertainment. Thank you Megan and I love you more than you will ever realize!I am so very blessed to have women in my life that have been where I am right now and can give me pointers. The Lord knows I need them! I am also very blessed to have women in my life that are right where I am right now that can relate immediately to the new experinces. I dont have it all together and I am not going to boast but it is beyond me why some women are too prideful to take advice from other women. Especially moms. I know that there are times that you really dont want to ask anyone because you dont want to look stupid. We ARE born with some intution but we are not, ARE NOT born baby experts and we definately do not automatically get the natural how-to novel embedded in our brain as soon as we are with child. I am a new mom and I know so many women that are new moms or about to be new moms. Please, please if you need help ask someone. Nobody can tell you exactly what to do in every situation, most of motherhood is trial and error I am currently convinced, but it so nice to have what others have done as a go to when you are at your wits end! I love you guys and happy day to all of you.

I agree...ask. Chances are the mom you ask will admit to you that she too once lived the horror about which you are inquiring. Mom friends are so very important and in my opinion...and the key to being a mommy success yourself. I love my mom friends. Thanks for reminding us all of the great momships with which we have been provided.

OMG, I was so happy to get a comment from you. I was just talking to Danny this weekend and she was just mentioning to me that you had a blog page and she mentioned I should contact you. It is so good to hear from you and see that you are doing so well. I love your blog page and congratulations by the way with everything. Starting a family and getting married and all. It's been way to long since we've talked. Caleb is adorable by the way. Hopefully I can talk to you soon. I'm going to add you to my blog page if I can figure out how. I'm a little knew to this whole thing so it takes me way longer then it should.
talk to you later.

Thank you for being so honest! I admit I can be one of those mommies who tries to do it all herself. I have the same struggles though. Sometimes I need someone to ask me. I'm so thankful for you and all our mommy-friends that God has given us.

Amen sister! Somedays we look together and other days people may need to call CPS. Thank God for women who have been through it already and can tell us before we loose our minds or mess it all up. I think you are doing an awesome job though... keep it up!
