If you have ever back carried a child in a baby carrier you know that sometimes the waist belt can dig in when you have to tighten it.
I have been exclusively back carrying Mac for more than a year now. The heavier he gets the more important it is that my belt position is not moving.
I was pretty excited when this new accessory came out from Líllébaby.
I am not sure why this is the case but we all know it’s true.
I know it’s not just me. I know I am not the only one that feels this way. Even though I felt proud of myself today, I think in the back of my mind of all the moms that have it harder than me.
I am happy to change to diapers and to embrace life as a mother. It really has been what I always wanted. But it left me feeling very alone as a stay at home mom at the age of 34.
One of the many reasons that Mac’s birth mom chose open adoption was because she wanted her sons to know each other and be friends. Her heart’s desire was for them to have a close relationship.

We need to be the fun moms (dads and grandparents). As families we will burn out if we spend day in and day out in the same grind with no family fun. We need to enjoy our children and experience the joy that is their childhood.
You will always be my baby but the time goes by so fast I don’t know when will be the last time I get to carry you or sing that song.

God calls us to be the stewards of His creation which is why I love to celebrate Earth Day. One of the reasons I chose to use cloth diapers with MacMillan was because it reduced the amount of waste going into our landfills. No one knows how long it takes for a disposable diaper to decompose, […]
