5 years ago I became a mom. Despite all the preparatory reading I did about taking care of a baby I was never prepared for what it felt like being a mom. Without even noticing, I was putting my needs aside and making sure my small baby was taken care of. I had to learn to balance 'Christine-time' with tending to a baby. Make-up/hair routines had to be paired down to 10 min. Clothes had to be dark patterns to cover up spit up. I even had to select foods that could be eaten with one hand. I only have 2 hands and 1 was always tending to the baby.
Mother's Day is coming up and I want to do something special for all moms. From one mom to another. I'm working on something special to be rolled out May 1 until Mother's Day. Stay tuned.
