Today my sweet little girl, Ryan, turns two months old. Everyone kept telling me to cherish the little moments, that time will fly. Wow, were they right! It seems like I spent the first few weeks in a daze, trying to figure out what the heck just happened and what the heck I was supposed to do next. See, I was the mom that read every pregnancy book under the sun, every single one. What I hadn’t prepared for, was “what to expect” after pregnancy. For example, no one told me I would stop showering or wearing makeup for almost a full month. That my once articulate vocabulary would turn into the full list of non-words, grunts, and deep sighs. That my body would take on a new form, unrecognizable to what once existed. Or that my house would look like Sesame Street vomited in every room.
It took Ryan and I almost full month to find our groove (if there is such a thing). And I realized: even if I couldn't quickly regain my big-girl words or spring my body back to pre-baby-bliss, I COULD tame that torrent of baby accouterments. I COULD change the way my home and personal style reflect who I am and who I want my baby to see me as. Oh, I also started showering again. That shouldn't go unsaid.
Mama and Me Baby Boutique is a carefully curated collection of everything that makes you you, all of your style, your attitude, your elegance, everything you’ve spent a lifetime discovering and honing. It doesn’t have to disappear when you become a mom. But all too often, those things fade behind a whirlwind of primary colors and cartoon critters and “who you are” becomes “who you used to be.” Well. Not any more. Mama and Me is here to celebrate what makes you unique. To provide a fresh perspective on what motherhood can look like. And to make sure you always feel like you.
