This Is How We Do: Motherhood + Google Part 2

Motherhood and Google letterboard

Welcome to another week of #TMAthisishowwedo! If you are just now following along to my new weekly series, catch up on they why behind it, on this post. This week’s topic is a follow up/part 2 to last week’s, “When Google Is My Therapist” with more real-life Google searches about motherhood and parenting.

In my most desperate hour of need, I will inevitably turn to Google to help me solve my latest parenting dilemma. This week alone, I searched the following:

– “how to get play doh out of a suede chair”
– “how to get toddler to stop drinking bath water”
– “how to help toddler not be afraid of the dark”
– “toddler drank some of my coffee should I be worried”
– “how long does the first sleep regression last”
– “signs of heat exhaustion in toddlers”

Seeing as how Google is every mom’s on-call therapist… 😂 I rounded up some more mama’s to share their most recent Google search for #tmathisishowwedo Motherhood + Google. For every facepalm moment of motherhood, there’s a Google search for it. They go hand in hand, am I right!! Read below for some relatable and real-life Googles from moms: Continue reading

This Is How We Do: Motherhood + Google

Welcome to a new week of #TMAthisishowwedo! If you are just now following along to my new weekly series, catch up on they why behind it, on this post. This week’s topic is, “When Google Is My Therapist.”

How many times a week (or day!) do you find yourself turning to Google for the most random circumstances that come up in your life? I definitely have some silly (and crazy) Google searches, more so since becoming a mom, even more so since my baby turned into a toddler.

How I Start My Morning Routine With Cold Coffee and Jesus

cold coffee and jesus
I have two kids that are 22 months apart (the oldest just turned 2!). My days usually start with “mommmyyyy! It’s time to wake uppp!” …and then my morning routine begins. I make sure the littlest one is still asleep in her bassinet as I stumble to our bedroom door, yawning down the hall to grab my toddler from her room. She greets me happily, but it’s not yet 8am and my brain hasn’t quite woken up. I don’t smile as big as I should. I mumble something about changing her diaper and getting her dressed for the day.

All I can really think about is getting her in her chair for breakfast, so I can have a few minutes to sit and drink my first cup of coffee. Hot or iced? Which pump flavor should I use today? My mind is caught up in a swirl of almond milk and bold roast as we both head to the kitchen (she runs, I lag behind).

Finding Magic In Motherhood: How Becoming A Mom Gave Me A Fresh Start

This week’s feature is from Valeska, a mama blogger at Sincerely Vee Blog. On her blog, she shares inspiration, encouragement, and truth to mamas seeking to widen their community of support, deepen their faith, and find hope + strength throughout motherhood. Today, she is sharing her story on how she became a new person, inside and out, after she became a mama – despite her hard upbringing.

Movie you wish you could live out:Eat Pray Love. Okay, I read this book and saw the movie before I was married, but I still wish I had lived the adventures she did in this movie!”

Favorite Royal Couple: “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle duh! To be honest, before the royal wedding I really didn’t care about what was going on…but then I binged watched every royal documentary on Netflix after their wedding and loved the magic that royal weddings have! I still wish I could be a real life princess.”

Coffee or tea:  “Coffee coffee coffee. Need I say more?”

Thank you Valeska for being a part of our Real-Girls: Mothers community! Finding magic in the midst of motherhood + marriage is something  we are all doing, together. Read below for Valeska’s post on experiencing the healing love of Christ through motherhood, and how it shaped her perspective on being a mama. Continue reading

5 things every new mom needs to do during the first year

Finding support and community is an easy thing to do with all the resources new moms have access to these days! And I believe that it’s owed to the millennial mom — she’s tech savvy, educated, driven to find her place in the world, and lives for community. She’s heavily invested in the it-takes-a-village mindset, and has turned motherhood into a lifestyle. After becoming pregnant, it was as if I had been suddenly initiated into a secret club that I had no idea even existed — one that brings women of all walks of mothering together. One that supports, educates, enriches, and provides countless women to simply be there with you during this journey! Continue reading
