As a mother of two I’ve learned that raising kids is like a game of the highest stakes. We all want to do our best job possible and so we push forward each and every day—even if we face daily experiences that humble us, terrify us or even break us down. But here’s the thing about motherhood: As mother’s we can truly conquer anything if we realize that we need each other. Generations ago children were raised communally, and women relied on one another to thrive.
Preparing for Motherhood
I remember when I was pregnant with Kingston how I would reach out to all of my girlfriends who already were mothers. I needed their advice desperately. One I thing I knew from the beginning was that I did not want motherhood to be an isolating experience. It seems that we have lost the village that we so desperately need. And without acknowledging the truth—that motherhood is hard and messy and sometimes ugly—we isolate ourselves even more. But it does not have to be this way. I cannot stand it when women, i.e. mother’s start competing with another—like my child starting walking at 7 months, etc. Who cares? Each child develops in his/her own speed and that is totally fine. No need to compare each others children to one another.

Helping Each other out
I am blessed to have this platform to share advice—you can listen to it or not. It’s truly your decision. Never do I ever want to lecture you. You do YOU and I do ME.
