Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Don’t Forget to Pause, Mama

Mama, sometimes your babies need you to pause.

To put down the to do lists, laptops with endless projects to complete, and the stacks of laundry you are working tirelessly to catch up on.

They might need you to hold them when they are sick.

To kiss their invisible boo-boos.

To read a bedtime story.

To answer their long list of questions about the world.

To make playdough towers.

To bake their favorite chocolate chip peanut butter cookies.

To build a fort in the living room and eat waffles underneath as you hear their little squeals echo around the room.

Sometimes they just need you.

To pause. To be. To escape to their little world and let them be the center of it for just a few minutes.

Even if the chaos continues around you — the moments can be fleeting. Today you both might need it.
