I am being compensated as a member of the Playtex Mom Trust Program, all opinions are my own.
I am so happy to announce that I have been chosen to be a part of the Playtex Mom Trust program!
“Playtex has put together a virtual network of parenting experts so that moms and dads can find common parenting ground and support each other through sharing stories, tips, product reviews, insights and unique experiences of parenthood.”
I am so excited to be able to be a part of this great group of parenting experts. I can’t wait to share parenting tips and reviews of Playtex products with you all. As most of you know, I am a stay at home mom to a very active 6 year old boy and a sweet 19 month old baby girl. They are so much fun to care for and raise, I am beyond blessed to be able to be home with them. We love dancing and singing around the house to music, swimming, going sledding, and all things fun!
Since this is my first post I thought I would share a quick parenting tip:
STOP COMPARING yourself as a parent! It is easy to see your friend who keeps a perfectly tidy home, or your neighbor who cooks a gourmet dinner each night, or the parent you see who never loses their temper with their child. But DON’T DO IT! I have been guilty of this so many times (and still am), but I am trying to make a big effort not to do it anymore. When you see someone’s strong points as a parent or homemaker you should be happy for them, but don’t try to hold yourself to their standard. Figure out what your strong points are as a parent or homemaker and focus on those. Your home might be a mess but your kids enjoyed all the time you spent playing with them at the park. You might have lost your temper with them today but they know you love them as you sat for an hour reading them stories. Focus on what makes you wonderful! Stop looking at others to see what you are not doing and focus on how awesome you are!
