Happily Ever Mom – Say What?!
So, what is Happily Ever Mom?? Happily Ever Mom is a nod to my favorite thing to do with kids: tell stories. And, my favorite *life* story began when I had my daughter and my son.
After 10 years of working with preschoolers, I finally had little ones of my own and I was so surprised with how different it was to have my own kids! Seriously, all the teaching in the world could not have prepared me for how unpredictable parenthood can be. But, it’s SO much fun too! The goal of Happily Ever Mom is to share my expertise as a childcare professional along with my experience as a Momma to form new hybrid information that can help (and entertain) other parents <— oh, and I make up words like hybrid information, too. I promise to keep the fun coming 😉
I want Moms to know that they aren’t alone. That parenting is hard work and oh-so rewarding, too. That being a Mom can be overwhelmingly joyful and shockingly demanding all in the same moment. I want Moms to know that we can learn from each other and, in that sharing, we can all grow to become better parents. I want Moms to live their best life stories alongside their kids.
