Things I'm Learning as a New Mom

  • Actual baby's breath smells so much sweeter than baby's breath the flower
  • Real tears on baby's face can quickly bring real tears to mom's face
  • The phrase "I would die for that" actually means something now
  • Hot coffee is a major luxury as it is either,
    • cold before you get a chance to drink it or 
    • it gets knocked over and you spend the rest of the morning cleaning it up
  • As hard as any other jobs were, they are nothing compared to being a mom
  • Outlet covers are not just baby proof
  • Babies really can learn to use the potty 
  • Cloth diapering, breastfeeding and making your own baby food is possible, I'm continually amazed thinking about how much time and money we have saved just by doing these 3 things
  • A baby sleeping on you actually can melt your heart
  • You don't have to give up who you are to be a mom but it probably will change you for the better anyway
  • Even though there is "new and improved" everything, sometimes doing things the "old fashioned" way is still better
  • Your baby still loves you and thinks you are beautiful no matter what you look like
  • Also, when you are holding a cute baby it doesn't matter what you look like because nobody is looking at you
  • Power cords, cell phones, remotes and kitchen utensils are way more fun to play with than expensive toys
  • Your greatest accomplishments in life are mere specs compared to the incredible human you have created
  • As frustrated and tired and worn out as you might feel, you know you would never trade it and imaging life before baby seems impossible
That's just a few of the things I have learned so far, I am sure that there is more to come, and for the first time ever I am enjoying school, babies are great teachers :)

300 for my 30th!

Well I turned 30 last week... I am not sad about it, I feel so lucky to have an amazing baby, husband, family, job, friends and of course all of the little pieces of wonderfulness that I have collected along the way! My husband told me to never be sad about aging because there are many people who are not given the opportunity (he heard this famous quote somewhere) and he is so right! So I decided to celebrate 30 by doing a giveaway!

Working full-time and being a full-time mama to a very busy little girl does not give me much free time AKA "fruitpants time". However, sewing is something that I love to do, it relaxes my mind, it makes me feel productive, it calms my stress and overall is a great way for me to spend 20 minutes or so a few nights a week and maybe a little more on the weekends. So I have decided that I need to keep fruitpants as a part of my life, even if its a very small, whenever I have time to squeeze it in kind of thing. And in an effort to spread the fruitpants sunshine to more people, I am doing a giveaway!

I want to reach 300 likes on my facebook page for my 30th birthday! So for my first giveaway (that's right, there will be more to come) I am teaming up with my friend Desirae from Going with the Flow and we are giving away a 3 pack of Baby Leg Warmers from fruitpants! This giveaway will begin on Wednesday, October 3rd!!! Be sure to check out the Going with the Flow blog and also the facebook page and the fruitpants facebook page for all of the details! We are excited and wish you luck!!!
