Keep your style no matter how many meltdowns were had, how many messes were made, or how many under-your-breath curse words were said today.
We’re parents, we know.
We’re reminded every day when we wake up from a nice deep sleep to our toddlers staring at us for who the hell knows how long, completely still & silent. Nothing like starting the day with a mild heart attack.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t need to shout to the world that I have kids. I especially do not want to scream it out with loud (figuratively and literally) toys.
I mean I love my kids so much that it hurts but I’m not just a mom. Yes, I am this new person, in a new role, trying to raise decent tiny humans, but I’m also trying desperately to hold onto the fact that I am my own person too.
Being a parent is so consuming. Mentally, physically, emotionally, it’s draining. And it’s so easy to lose yourself in it, to forget that you are you.
Pretty can mean safe too.
You do not need to sacrifice your style or your child’s safety because you’re choosing to buy toys and teethers that are pretty.
So why is there this idea that just because you have kids you can’t have nice things?
We can and we will.
Let’s play, learn, and grow together but let’s do it to our aesthetics. Let’s break out of this stigma where our whole world revolves around our kids. It is healthy to put ourselves first from time to time, it’s healthy to put our spouses first, and it is healthy for our kids to see and know that too.
I am here with you – that is why I created The Little Dinosaur. Safe, stylish, and functional goodies for your tiny humans because parenthood can be subtle.
Seriously, Let’s chat, I’ll remind you of who you are before kiddos, help you see who are now that you’re a parent, and just listen to when you need a place to unload or have a conversation with another adult. Because I too cannot string words together in a sensible manner, but thats ok because we’re in this together.
