Turning Into A MomHawk

Turning Into A MomHawk


Being a first-time mom is a trial by error lifestyle. I have a very energetic and rambunctious almost two-year-old. He is such a handful that a quick look away  has meant a bucket of sour cream spilled all over him. I have seriously  been in the process of transforming in a hawk. I admit it has taken several of these sour cream, juice spilled, and even rice everywhere incidents to cause the transformation process, but it’s very much a requirement in the Mom Duty Lifestyle. I was just thinking how I should share some of these eye opening toddler tips to new moms headed from the lovely baby to toddler transition phase of the process.

Moms get ready! Here are some tips.

1. Accept the FACT that there will be messes. Sometimes  you have to realize you can’t always protect the nice rug from staying a lovely off white color forever. With a new toddler comes the mess, but that is why we have carpet cleaners and vacuums.

2. You won’t be perfect at first. The skill of preventing messes is seeing them before they happen is a skill you will learn. If you hear Moms brag about this skill, it’s because they earned that badge.

3. Stay Confident in Your Parenting Skills. Why? Well, there will always be people that have different opinions and views on parenting. For example, discipline. Stick to what you think is right. At the end of the day, you are the parent. Don’t cave Ladies stick to what you think is right!

4. Watch out for the lip pout! My son has a hard time with the word No. When I take something away or tell him something in a strict voice, I get the little lip pout. This lip pout makes me want to laugh so badly, and at times he just looks into my eyes waiting for me to give in. You have to be strong! Trust me that pout is enough to make you give him back the candy and then buy him ice cream.

5. Find out, the one thing that will calm him down. For example, my son and Barney. Yes, 1990’s Barney is still around, and kids still love him. My son could be screaming but when he hear Barney on that tablet, it’s an instant cry stopper. Find your cry stopper.

Alright, those might be something to think about. There are seriously millions of tips out there. I am sure you can give me some too. Let me know if you would like to add to my list.

From a new mom to another.

Be Confident, you got this Mom!
