As a mom, it is ok to feel tired, overwhelmed, frustrated and even defeated. There is no need to hide these feelings and act as if everything is always alright. Being a mom is not easy. Remember to give yourself some free time to read, have adult conversation, plan a Mom’s night out or just some quiet time. Our kids cannot enjoy the best of us if we are not working to our full potential. You are a person too, relax, you’re doing just fine. No one expects perfection, but moms get pretty close 😉 Too often do women keep quiet about how they are feeling and has to stop. It will eat away at you bit by bit. Start to have conversations with other moms about these feelings, you will see that you are not alone.
We love being mothers, right? It is a gift from God. We would just like to feel sexy again or wear our favorite jeans again. We usually wait until after Christmas to start a workout routine.

Make the decision to start weight loss or toning well beyond New Years so that you can pace yourself. Summer bodies are built-in the winter. Don’t wait until New years to make a resolution.

This is by far, one of my favorite products. We still use it and my daughter is almost 8 months old. Of course there are safety regulations that you must follow to avoid incidents. The best part is that it can be used when she’s a toddler, which is great because she loves it!!

So, people always offer advice about parenting, but why does it seem like they forget significant things like a yeast infection! Now for those of you that do not know, both girls and boys can get yeast infection.
Back story: my daughter was congested and I was told that it would go away within a week since it was just a common cold. She only 3 months old at the time and cold medicine is a no-no. Well the cold lasted 3 weeks and she ended up with an ear infection. She was prescribed antibiotics which led to her yeast infection. Please know that it looked just like a diaper rash, but a few days ago I noticed the discharge (sorry for those that are squeamish)! What was news to me was that a yeast infection can spread and gets under the neck from drooling (keep plenty of bibs around). Are you ready for the remedy??? Lotrimin AF!!!! Yes, the anti fungal foot cream! And a sitz bath (baking soda bath). My, my, my you learn something new everyday!
