Welcome to Motherhood Life-changing. Challenging. Emotional. Surprising. Rewarding. So many words to describe motherhood, all of them true. Yes, it can be crazy. And yes, it won’t be sunshine and rainbows every day. But for every trying day there will be many more joyous days. Like when your baby finally calls you “mama”. Or the time they smoosh you in a bear hug out of the blue. At those times, you remember why you’re a parent. Soon, your little newborn will become a toddler and before you know it, they’ll start school. Along the way, they’ll need your help to grow into person they’re meant to be.
Last Saturday, July 8, Fisher Price via Baby Company held its first leg of series of symposiums for expectant moms and moms with newborns and toddlers at SM Aura Premier.
