Welcome Survival 4 Moms readers!
Today I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to have a guest post on The Survival Guide 4 Rookie Moms’ blog.
The fantastic duo behind this site are Erica Wells and Lorraine Regel. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Erica a couple of times at the Digital Mum and Maple Leaf Roundtable Events, and I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to meet Lorraine too!
These two ladies together created the book The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms.
Becoming a new Mom is full of many adventures you never saw coming. Most of them seem smack you right in the face without warning (oh wait, that was my toddler!). At times it can be very isolating. I’m pretty sure we had to get rid of our couch after the huge cravat that was formed from sitting on the thing all day and night feeding my baby boy. The funny part is before you become a Mom you think I’m kidding. Then your precious angel is born and you know I’m 100% serious.
The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms is a great book to have right by your side to know that you are absolutely not going it alone in this crazy, amazing, and life-altering adventure. The book is full of things no one ever tells you about becoming a Mom. The best part – the book light hearted and will make you laugh! What better way to cope with life than to find humour in even the most challenging of situations?
If your hormones are raging and one moment you’re happy and the next your wiping the baby-blues tears away this book will be just what you’re in need of to lift your spirits, and help you realize there are many of us Moms right here with you.
If you’re quick enough to read this book before you have a baby, you’ll probably be better prepared to find humour is the whole experience that so many Moms have gone through before you. For the Mom that’s at home literally breaking in the couch (and needs a break from the 24/7 television) let this book written by Moms who care for Moms be the friend you’re in need of.
We all need someone to help us feel better, show us we are not alone, and make us laugh. Despite my best efforts to stay on the phone with my husband ALL day (really not kidding again!) it is very hard for even your most beloved family and friends who are trying so hard to get some work done besides the constant feedings and diaper changes you’re going through. Let this book help you!
A Little Background…
I thought I would share a little background on myself for those of you new to this site. I’m so happy you stopped by! My name is Wendy and I’m a recovering new Mom. OK, so I’m definitely not recovered yet! I’m a mother of 2: a boy (age 4 1/2) and a girl (1 ½). I started Give Love Create Happiness because I thought I was losing my brain. Seriously, it was feeling kind of mushy up there, and I needed a creative outlet. Here I talk about everything from creating more happiness in life, to laughing at the whole parenting gig (sarcasm is my friend!). You’ll find bits and pieces of my journey and a recipe or two.
Life is quit the ride and my aim is to spread love and happiness anyway I can!
If you would like to see more of my work try my section Creating Happiness under categories on the sidebar, or if you’re in need of something a little more light-hearted and maybe a good laugh try my recent post Shred about one of my daughter’s favorite activities!
