How I (& You!) Can Be A Better Mom in 2018

Monday, January 8, 2018


The best part of 2017 for me was the birth of my daughter, McKenna. Holding her in my arms felt like a dream come true and most days I can't believe how blessed I am to call this happy little girl mine. I don't like making New Year's resolutions. Mainly because I always break them within a week, but this year I have just one: be a better mom. I want to push myself to be the best I can for the person I love most in this world and myself. I've come up with 5 ways how I can be a better mom in 2018 and you can, too!

Mainly because I always break them within a week, but this year I have just one: be a better mom. I want to push myself to be the best I can for the person I love most in this world and myself. I've come up with 5 ways how I can be a better mom in 2018 and you can, too!

1. Cut myself some slack.

The world is not going to end if the dishes or laundry aren't done. I'm not claiming to be the world's greatest mom, but I've done a damn good job the past 5 months! My household is not a reflection of my parenting, just my poor time management skills and laziness.

2. Be present.

I'm 100% guilty of not being fully present when spending time with my daughter. My phone is my biggest distraction, so I'm starting to limit my use when I'm around her. I encourage all moms to do the same! Put down those electronic devices and learn to live in the moment with your little ones.

3. Get healthy.

I'm doing this for me and my child's sake. Whatever it takes (or means) for me to be healthy and stay around as long as possible for my kid, I'm going to do it! I want to be able to chase after her and not run out of breath. I also want to show her how to eat healthy by example.

4. Stop the comparison game.

Motherhood is not a race and no two babies are alike. I don't want to compare myself (or my baby) to other moms and their parenting journeys.

5. Continue giving her the best.

My child deserves the sun, moon, and all the stars in the sky so I am going to do my best to give it all to her. My parents gave me the world plus more and I want McKenna to have the same.

If I could choose a word to focus on in 2018, it would be McKenna. My little one is my everything and I want to give her my undivided attention. I want to watch her grow and thrive right before my eyes. I want to be the best mom I can for her because she deserves it.
