Mom Must-Reads :: Week of January 15

Want to know what other moms are reading about? We’ve pulled the top 5 posts from across our Sister Sites just for you!

One-and-Done? Maybe Reconsider.

Once I read an article stating that the closest relationship any people would have is that of a sibling relationship. I thought about this for awhile and then decided that it made sense despite never experiencing this type of relationship myself.

Instant Pot Crash Course

So you got an Instant Pot for Christmas. Now what?! Other than the “water test”, where do you start, right? (And if you don’t know what the water test is, then you aren’t the instruction manual reading type and you desperately need this article. Just sayin’.)

The Dark Side of Down Syndrome

Take my hand and walk with me for a moment. You’re nervous, stressed, anxious, sleep deprived, and everything else that comes with being a mom, but you keep on moving forward. You bring yourself to walk into a room filled with three hundred women, most of whom you’ve never met. As soon as the door opens you instantly relax because you are suddenly struck by the fact that these are YOUR people.

Me In the Margins

I’ve come across so many great articles recently about how important it is to take “me” time as a mom. Can I be honest? I don’t know how people do this during this stage of parenting young kids! In my life, the chores just keep piling up and the kids’ needs are constant, and it’s all I can do to keep my head above water.

How I (Easily) Lost over Fifty Pounds!

As a girl who has always loved food, I’ve struggled with my weight since childhood. I vividly remember the day I was anxiously sitting on the side of a pool in my 10-year-old body in an unforgiving bathing suit and another kid called me “fat.” I wanted to crawl out of my skin. The shame that I felt was horrible. My mother has always been an active, curvy lady and she did a great job of always encouraging me with my body image. Thank you mom for that!
