Join Our Mothers First Community


Hello faithful readers! Today I have something exciting to share with you. Do you ever have questions about raising kids that you wish you could discuss with other moms? Do you wish there was a place that shared helpful information about how to be the best mom you can? Well my friend Carisa (from the blog Messes to Memories) and I have teamed up to create a new community called Mothers First!

Changing Pad Tutorial

When Little J was born, my wonderful friend Shalie sewed the cutest and handiest changing pad for me. I have been using it for almost two years now, and it still is in great shape and works perfectly! A few months ago, she asked if I wanted the pattern and I immediately said yes! It has places to keep both diapers and wipes inside so you only have to grab one thing when you go change your baby, and it is soft inside so it's comfy for baby, too. It's not a hard pattern and I am excited that I get to share it with you today!

Last month the Mister took Little J to see his first movie in the theaters while I stayed home with Little A. They went and saw Disney's Big Hero 6 together, and Little J absolutely loved it! He sat through the entire movie, ate a ton of popcorn, and came home and told me all about it. Even though it was over a month ago, Little J still tells me about it all the time. It was a big deal for my little toddler!

Tomorrow, Big Hero 6 comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD, so I thought we could celebrate and get Little J excited by making some special cupcakes to eat while we watch the movie. I know he is going to love them, and I can't wait to have a special family movie night! Here we come, San Fransokyo!

Meet Chelsea: How I Became Who I Am Today




My mom likes to remind me that in high school I used to say I never wanted to have children. I was very independent, wanted to do my own thing, and had big plans for the future. I absolutely did not want to be one of those girls who got married early and had lots of kids

Fast forward to today. I am 25, I've been married almost 5 years, I have two kids under two, and I love being a stay-at-home mom. So how did so much change in less than ten years? I would love to tell you.

5 Ways Meal Planning Simplifies My Life

When the Mister and I were both in college, we ate boxed pasta or at a restaurant almost every night. Needless to say, it wasn't ideal. So when we moved for medical school and I wasn't in college anymore, I decided to try meal planning. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made! It has helped take the stress out of answering "what's for dinner tonight?" I want to share why meal planning has simplified my life, and hopefully inspire others to try it out!
