What Keeps Me Sane as a New Mom

I know, 2 posts in less than 2 weeks? What is going on here??

Charlotte is finally transitioning to 1 nap which gives me a longer chunk in the middle of the day to clean, relax, cook, read, oh and blog too! 🙂

Today I wanted to share the top 3 things that keep me sane a New mom and a SAHM?!

Mommy Podcasts

Before having my daughter, I never listened to podcasts…..or even knew how to! I don’t like having the tv on during the day and can get tired of the same Pandora stations so most days I listen to at least one podcast.

Coffee and Crumbs Podcast

Coffee and Crumbs is one of my favorite blogs, I think I’ve been following it for about a year. And they just launched a podcast last month. Yay!

The blog (which the podcast will follow) is a collection of stories contributed by various authors about any motherhood topic under the sun.

The Girl Next Door Podcast

Podcast

Aren’t they just too cute? These ladies are actual neighbors (love that) and chat about parenthood highlights struggles and everything in between. And always over a good cocktail!

You can listen to their podcast here 🙂

Mom Friends

Especially ones with children the same age as yours! 🙂 When my pediatrician told me to start sippy cups, the first thing I did was text my mom friends and ask their advice. It is incredibly comforting and makes you feel less alone having friends that you can talk to or ask about anything. Or just to vent to when your child isn’t napping or woke up at 5am. 🙂

Amazon Prime

For real, I don’t know how mommas survive without it! I don’t want to drive to Target every week and there is always something my hubby needs, I need or we need for Charlotte. The convenience is just so wonderful…..I don’t know what I did before Prime! Ha!

Once baby boy comes in May, I will be adding Wine to this list I’m sure! 😉

Alright there is more to add to this list. If you are a mom, what keeps you sane??

My Favorite Podcasts

Hey Hey!

This week is already flying by for me because the hubby took Monday off from work!  It’s amazing how one day can make such a difference. We had company over the weekend, so it was nice to have yesterday to just chill at home.

We are also beginning to transition Charlie into her big girl crib. Now that she’s sleeping about 6 hours a night, we figured it was a good time to finally start the process. Eeek!

Well, I tried to have her nap in there today and she wasn’t having it. Every time I went to check on her she was wide awake and then she spit up all over her sleep sack. #fail

Once I changed her I put her back in the Rock N Play… and this happened. Naturally.

Since I’m home everyday, I’ve been listening to more and more Podcasts. I love Pandora Radio, but I was getting a little bored of music all the time! Today I wanted to share what I’ve been listening to.

Here are my favorite three (so far)!

Serial~ I’m sure you have at least heard of this podcast. It blew up last year and for good reason. I finished this one in about a week. It investigates a murder trial and without giving much away, there are a lot of holes in the case. I heard there is going to be a new serial podcast this fall, can’t wait!

Stuff You Should Know~ These podcasts cover so many random topics like “how color works” “how street gangs work” or “what’s the deal with blood types?” Always fun to learn some random trivia, right?

The Longest Shortest Time~ This podcast covers various topics related to childhood and parenthood. The last episode was an interview of a man finding out his 21 year old daughter was pregnant. Good stuff.
