Friends! Life as a mother of two little pudgy kiddos is part chaos, part cuddles, and a dash of tears (in the happy and tired variety). I love it. I don’t always feel 100% in my element as a mama, but I’m never looking back. Being a mom has taught me that my capacity to love is beyond my comprehension. It has also taught me how to clean crap (I literally mean human poop) off of the floor/wall/dog/carpet/TV without even flinching. I’m convinced there is no smell that could get me to dry heave at this point.
Being a mom also means that I am spread real thin on the piece of toast that is life. Not being able to “do it all” means that some things (the non-important things) have fallen to the sides to make way for Tuesday movie dates with Liam, extra nap-time cuddles with Charlotte, and lots (lots lots lots) or fat roll kissing. Oh man that little pudgy Char-bar has at least 85% body fat and a diet of only breast milk. I must be making straight cream or my babes were just meant to be chubby. I’m convinced that there is no funner thing to kiss than fat baby legs. It’s science. Look it up.
There are, however, a couple times during the day where I need to sort of step into a quiet moment and sort out all the chaos. Just put my two little humans down for a nap and collect myself by catching up on emails, reading a few texts, shaving my armpits…important stuff. That’s when I turn to my mamaRoo infant seat rocker that (through some space science) imitates the rocking of a human mother. You guys when I first got a mamaRoo rocker and watched it rock my Charlotte right to sleep I simultaneously thought: What sorcery is this? and Ellen should be sending one of these to ever mother in America! Ellen still hasn’t responded to my 137 emails, but I’m optimistic. The mamaRoo has 5 different motions, from swooping side to side to rocking up and down and I can adjust the speeds from fast (think trying to calm down a frantic little babe) to slow (think softly rocking to sleep). I can also control it with my phone and play music with it. Dynamite.
I mean it when I say I am a believer in the mamaRoo rocker. It simplifies my life when I need a moment of simplicity. And next on my wish list of 4moms products is the temperature-gauged infant tub. Like I said, space science. I’m obsessed. I want to buy one for all of you. Every. Single. One. But the economics of my bank account might not allow that . I can however giveaway 1 mamaRoo infant seat to 1 lucky ducky reader! Yes you heard me I get to give one away! I’m a little excited over here . To enter just check out the box below!
