Mom Talk Tuesdays


You know the saying "It takes a village"? I never knew what it really meant until we became parents. Add parenthood to moving across the country, I soon learned that counting on others to lend advice, tips and tricks and at times brutal honesty was just the tip of the iceberg when it came learning all about being a Mom and Dad. And let's be honest here, there is always something new to learn and things change so fast that it's really hard to keep up.

Because "the village" is filled with Moms of all walks of life, I thought wouldn't it be fantastic if we all could pool together our thoughts, tips and tricks and pieces of advice in one place. And that's how Mom Talk Tuesdays came about. So many times, I have Googled this or Pinterest that for an answer to question or concern I have and often times, I'm led to a blog post written by a Mom who has been challenged with the same struggles and obstacles as I.

Starting in January, Mom Talk Tuesdays will give Moms a chance to give ideas and take ideas to help foster growth and encouragement as a parent and as a women. Winter is closing in on us in Texas so I thought what better way to kick off this linkup than with our first topic: Indoor Toddler Fun. I can't wait to read what ya'll do to combat cabin fever.

To say I'm excited about this project is an understatement. Building a strong "mom" based support group is so important for any mom out there and I'm hoping this online forum provides support and encouragement to any Momma that stumbles across our posts. So save the image above for reference and grab the button on the right side of my side bar and come back next month and join us in enlightening parents every where.

  4. I don't have kids, but I do care for them and it DOES take a village. Sadly, many Americans have shunned this idea. I hope more people accept it again.
