Love Letters from Mom :: Amazon.com

Dear Amazon.com,

I don’t know where I’d be without you.

I’m a new mom. I have no idea what I’m doing here, so I read a lot of baby sleep blogs as I rock my girl at 4 a.m. I also text and Instagram message with my young/new/veteran mom friends — again, often in the middle of the night when we are the only group of people (aside from morning news anchors and bakery workers) who are awake.

When I learn about something that worked for someone... to encourage baby sleep, breast milk production, personal self-care, day-to-day household lifehacks... I turn immediately, almost instinctually to you.

Pump parts? Click. Sleep sack? Click. Nipple shells? Click. Face wash? Click. Coffee? Don’t even have to click 'cause I already got that ish on my Subscribe & Save list.

Your 2-day Prime shipping guarantee has saved my sanity. Your one-click iPhone app “Buy Now” button has repeatedly renewed my hope for better days (and more sleep-filled nights). Your “Your orders” tab with the promise that my package will await me when I open my front door has, well, made me want to actually think about opening the door to go outside somedays.

This is all to say, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I am forever grateful to you for helping to get me through the most challenging days (oh, let’s be real: it’s mostly the long, dark nights) of my life. How did moms do it, before the internet and two day delivery and the instant connection with other moms in our exact situation? I'm not sure, and I know I wouldn't want to find out. I'm just thankful that I get to live in this age. And am more in awe than ever of MY mom! 

Forever Yours,
Sarah (and all the stressed out, sleep-deprived, worked-to-the-bone moms of the world)

It’s Time :: Moms, Let’s Do Better
I have a serious question. (This rarely happens. *wink*) When did it become okay to be late? Maybe I’m old-school or am just imagining it (I’m not.), but it seems these days it’s becoming more and more typical for people to casually stroll into meetings 10-15 minutes late, blow off dinner plans for an hour […]
Veterans Day and Our Kids
My first memories of celebrating Veterans Day are from elementary school. In my tiny hometown of Bruceton, TN, we had an awesome celebration each year to honor veterans in the area. Since our school had kindergarten through 12th grade in the same building, the entire school attended the program. I have such fond memories of the Veterans of […]
