Sizing: generally if you’re 5’7″ and taller, we recommend getting the poncho, if you’re shorter than that, we recommend the petite size.

It was a dream of mine to make a matching set that me and my daughters could dress in. The poncho is flowy, heavy, warm and the perfect season-less layer. It is travel and nursing friendly and can be worn multiple ways. Did you know mother’s day is 13 days away? It’s a perfect gift to give and get!

Motherhood is a constantly changing role, one that consistently brings joy and fulfillment, but also stress and worry. When I think about what I used to think of being a mom when growing up, and what I know about it now, it is almost laughable. So here is what I would say to my younger self. 


8 Things I Would Tell a New Mom


1. Having a “real” job in the “real” world actually works against you when you become a mom. Because you are spoiled. Lunchbreak? No such thing. You do lunch. Paid overtime? How about no pay even during the day. Coffee breaks? You get the coffee without the break … but no time to use the bathroom so you might want to rethink that coffee. Personal space? What’s yours is also the kids, including your food, your body, your time, and anything lovely you ever bought in your house (including those silk curtains you saved up for but were subsequently peed on). 

2. You have to find your Thing, that thing that recharges you and makes you keep ticking. It could be reading, taking a luxurious bath, painting, or watching Netflix. If you don’t find it and nourish it (which literally means to find the time to do it, even if it’s only 30 minutes a day), you will get lost in the Forest of Mothering. And nobody ever comes out sane from that Forest.  
3. Kids are a little bit like moles. Did you know that moles manage to both find and devour their food in an average of 227 milliseconds? That’s a quarter of a second. And it only gets worse as the kids get older. So basically, if you want food, you gotta eat fast. 
4. You will become one of those people who uses dry shampoo because showers are as plentiful as flowers in a desert. 
5. Your fourth child has been calling you, “Ma” (like from Little House on the Prairie) for a year and not only have you just noticed, but you don’t care
6. Messy houses just mean lived-in houses. Maybe designate a clean up day once-a-week. Or once-a-month? We can be flexible that way. Main point? Don’t stress it. 
7. You are a selfish being. You are also blessed because children help you realize this in ways you wouldn’t imagine. Motherhood shows you what you’re made of while also taking and taking from you, and yet you almost feel stronger for it. 
8. When you’re in the trenches of Motherhood, life is about survival, as in, “I hope I make it to tomorrow.” But it doesn’t stay there. If you manage to get beyond it, the relationships forged and the people formed are an incredible gift. 

The older I get, the more I desire healthy kids who fear the Lord and love each other. Life is so short and I want to redeem the time by making sweet memories with my five.

I was telling one of my readers, its been SO hard to get blog posts out lately with a toddler, homeschooling 4 kids, and a husband at home. Our mornings start with “whats for breakfast,” than I find myself cleaning up pancake batter everywhere, feeding Levi, stepping on pancakes on the floor, asking the kids if they did their English homework, etc. Than we do math and history etc. I make lunch, we clean up, I do some work, prep dinner, clean up go for a walk, watch an episode of The Middle, clean up, wash face, and hit the sack! All that to say, its been busier than ever. While you my reader is busier than ever, stores everywhere like Nordstrom are having crazy sales.

1. B+W Art is some of my favorite. // 2. Sweet dainty necklace 3. Jane Pope Ring (this one is most like my granny’s ring!) // 4. Statement bag at a great price point 5. Splurge worthy bag, yes please! // 6. Silk Robe that transitions from day to night. // 7. Bath salts  Nothing says I love you like a hot bath and reviving bath salts. My kids know how much I LOVE baths. 8. Rose Oil smells amazing! // 9. Dry Brush increases circulation, stimulates the nervous system, and helps detoxify. I’m a fan.

I accidentally told the kids my birthday is Sunday! That’s how much I love mother’s day. I picked a couple things I love above like a silky robe and a bath soak. Things not mentioned above is a good night’s sleep and a neck massage. I hope you make your mom feel extra special this Sunday because it’s the hardest job out there. Also, If you are a mom, let your kids spoil you and feel confident this is the best job out there. Someone once told me, you’re doing much better than you think you are. Let’s stop and enjoy this unique role we have as mother’s.

What’s your favorite mother’s day gift so far?
