5 Things Blog Along,...Mother

So it's Friday and once again it's time for me to share my 5 things that make my life easier as a momma. Seeing that I am a new at this (only 4 months) I am still learning the ropes. Although I was a nanny for years, does that count?

1.) Snap & Go Stroller - The best $25.00 I spent at a PTA sale. It has come in handy these past few months. It's small and compact and fits well in my little VW. I can just snap Liam's car seat on and not worry about him waking up. The basket is handy to carry groceries, shopping bags, a loose jacket. Plus I have been able to get out of the house for some fresh air once and awhile!

2.) PTA Sales - I have found 98% of Liam's clothes at these wonderful sales. I have saved big $$. I have blogged about it before. My dad commented the other day on how stylish Liam always looks. It's so much fun to dress him up. He's like my little doll.

3.) MOPS - I just joined a few months ago and it has been such a blessing! It's nice to get away for a few hours in the morning and share with other woman that have children as well. It's encouraging to know that I am not alone in this journey. I love the speakers, the friends I have made, the crafts, the prayers shared and the wonderful yummy breakfast we get at our meetings. What a blessing! I love it!!

4.) Big Hand Bags - So instead of carrying a huge diaper bag everywhere I go, I just use a stylish big bag! It's perfect for all the essentials. Cell phone, date book, diapers, wipes and of course an extra pacifier (soother). Which can I say is a God sent?! What what I do without one of those little Advent pacifiers? They come in so handy! Liam loves his.

5.) Hair ties & Bumble & Bumble products - I refuse to get a "mom hair cut." I am not saying names, but I know a few people who have had their hair cut right after having a baby and it just doesn't look right on them. I love having longer hair (Tom likes it too) and so I have been styling my hair in up dos! :) The pony and braid is back in,....haven't you've heard?

  1. I LOVE the tips! I have a snap & go stroller and have been pleased with it too. We had our first real stroller walk on Friday and my little Boo loved it!
    I never even knew about PTA sales so will definitely be looking into them.
    You also encouraged me to look into MOPS. My church has a group but it's kind of far away so I hadn't looked into it too much. I'm going to have to change that!
