I am planning on sharing more about this past week eventually. Hopefully for Tuesday’s podcast episode. 

As I have shared about our sleep issues this week in my stories, so many of you have reached out saying you can relate to everything I’m going through and how I’m feeling.

Social media is funny because, people often feel validated and “normal” when  they read my posts and watch my stories... but, you guys make me feel validated and “normal” too when you share your stories in the comments and in DMs to me. It means so much ❤️

I am planning on sharing...

We’ll let you know 👍🏼

Why does dinner exist?

Why does dinner exist?

Every time I do something like this... (get in the bath tub with Milo when he’s refusing to get in) I can feel people rolling their eyes at me. 

I think people see me do these things and assume I’m doing it FOR MILO. I’m not. I’m doing it for my husband and I. We choose our battles. I know people assume if you do something like this, your child will expect it and you’ll be getting in the tub every night. That hasn’t been our experience with Milo. 

So, if he’s having an “off-night” and doesn’t want to get in the tub and me getting in with him makes it fun for him and he happily gets in, then I’m doing it. 

As someone who doesn’t feel like showering every day, I can relate to not wanting to get in the tub. 

I asked my husband to wash me too... he said no. 😞

Every time I do something...

Feelin’ hawt today. Sike. (Do we still say sike?)

Genuinely curious.

Genuinely curious.

What a fun game! You just need a small nail clipper and two players. It’s the funnest if one player doesn’t have a fully developed prefrontal cortex! So many people tell me to cut his nails while he sleeps. I am just not that brave. I can barely breathe when he’s sleeping because I don’t want him to wake up.

What a fun game! You...

The Mom Room on Facebook

Try to come from a place of empathy when you are commenting or chatting with another mom. 

The best mom community there ever was has launched a Facebook group. My favourite part of my social media accounts, the podcast, and this blog is interacting with other moms. Sharing tips and tricks, being open and honest, and sharing our struggles and our joys. As much as I love Instagram, and it allows me to interact and chat with many moms around the world, it doesn’t give YOU guys the opportunity to do the same. I am not a big Facebook user anymore but I know it is a great platform for communities of like-minded people to connect. In this post you will find the group rules, a link to join the group, and a short list of what I hope this group becomes.


The Mom Room Community: Facebook Group Rules

1. Be Kind and Courteous
We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required. Try to come from a place of empathy when you are commenting or chatting with another mom. 
2. No Hate Speech or Bullying
We want to ensure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind is not allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.
3. Respect Everyone’s Privacy
Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.
4. No Promotions or Spam
Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren’t allowed, and will be removed. Multiple offences will lead to you being removed from the group. We will have dedicated days to promote your small business. Of course we want to help promote mom-owned businesses.
5. This is a Moderated Group
We want to keep things safe and friendly for everyone, please be aware that admins are reading posts, and will take action as necessary. 
6. Be Sensitive
Motherhood comes with difficult topics at times, if you want to share about a sensitive issue, please add a content/trigger warning at the start of your post.

What I hope The Mom Room Community Facebook Group will be used for:

  • Share baby/kid/postpartum products we love.
  • Share hilarious content.
  • Share our joys/struggles.
  • Give and get support.
  • Share amazing resources (books, podcasts, etc.).
  • Chat about whatever!
