I don’t think anyone is actually fully prepared when it comes to being a new parent. You’ll get solicited and unsolicited advice and you’ll do some research, but none of that compares to what you’ll actually experience.

I didn’t know what I was doing and pretty much flew by the seat of my pants on the daily.

Choice Matters: Plan Against Pain During Child Birth

Choice Matters: Plan Against Pain During Child Birth

I knew from the get-go what type of pain management I would be having when giving birth to my 2nd daughter. Even though I had a vaginal delivery both times, the pain was less the 2nd go around and all I took was Ibuprofen and Tylenol. The nurses did give me oxycodone during my 1st delivery, but it did nothing for pain and actually made me feel sick. I opted to never take another one of those again since Ibuprofen and ice were enough to relieve my pain.

Save 100$ on the all-new HP Envy x360 Laptop

*This post is sponsored by Best Buy and HP*

My husband’s gaming laptop is around 5 or 6 years old that I sometimes use for online work is starting to show its age. It gives me some issues with standard tasks such as browsing with multiple tabs opened, which is why I am now considering the HP Envy x360 laptop since it has a 360 flip and fold design, full HD touchscreen, 8gb of system memory and Windows 10 which are all perfect for multitasking which is what I do. Lately, I haven’t been able to get on my desktop, well not lately, more like the past year or so since I have children who constantly need my attention, so most of my work I do from my phone currently. Sometimes though, I can escape for 30 minutes upstairs to use my PC to get stuff done but something like this would be perfect since it’s portable and functions like a laptop and tablet for whatever suits my needs at the time and I can be in the same room as my kids without having to turn on the baby monitor when they’re sleeping.

It seems like everyone suffers from one thing or another nowadays. Doctors prescribe you pills to “prevent”, which then bring on other ailments and in turn becomes a never-ending problem.

Hair is a pretty important part of the body and appearance and may even be a big part of your confidence. As a mom of 2 now, I don’t exactly have the time to primp, straighten or curl my hair like I used to, but I still love taking care of my hair with products like desert essence whether I am putting my hair in a bun or actually fixing it up to go somewhere with the hubby.
