It seems like it was yesterday when I found out I was expecting my first child. Those 9 months were akin to a fairy tale. We were so ecstatic when he finally arrived and we loved every bit of that 6 lbs. and 11 oz. baby. That’s why it’s hard for me to believe that he’s now a pre-teen. 6 years later, I brought my other pride and joy, my daughter, home from the hospital. My pride and joy will be turning 6 and will be entering kindergarten this summer. My daughter is a bundle of energy that keeps me on my toes, flitting from one destination to the next.
We officially became a party of 5 when my third son was born last summer. He made his arrival the day after my daughter’s 5th birthday, making their birthdays one day apart. The odds! It goes to show how time quickly passes by since he’ll be celebrating his 1st birthday next month. Motherhood has taught many valuable lessons over the years, but one of the most important lessons motherhood has taught me is to relish in every moment and cherish it. This even includes the most mundane moments, especially since children grow up in a blink of an eye! There are days when my children keep me on my toes, but they keep me young and happy. There is hardly a day without joy and laughter!
Whether you’re a new parent or have more than one child, motherhood is a journey of joy, laughter, love, bittersweet moments, and valuable lessons to be learned along the way. It doesn’t matter how many baby books you have read or what tips you have received from other moms, you’re also learning something new every day – through trial and error. I’ve learned over the years what works for one mom may not work for this mom. But, there is at least one thing that many moms can agree on and that is that we want the best for our child.
Provide the Best Ingredients for Your Baby with Clearly Crafted
I work at home and easily get caught in a whirlwind of tasks and activities! That’s why preparing homemade baby food isn’t always an option since the hustle and bustle of life usually deter me from doing that. Do I feel guilty? Not in the least! I’m happy as long as my baby is fed and healthy. That’s another thing motherhood has taught me – mom guilt and how to overcome it! Sure, I love the idea of growing my own organic fruits and making baby food from scratch, but that isn’t feasible for many moms in this day and age.
Happy Baby Clearly Crafted Jars are the perfect option for parents who want the best for their babies. Their products are made with simple, natural, and wholesome organic fruit and vegetables for a vibrant flavor you can see and taste. Clearly Crafted comes in 10 flavors, from Bananas & Sweet Potatoes and Apples & Blueberries to Pears & Kale and Apples & Spinach. Furthermore, Happy Family partners with organic farms and suppliers that share their passion for making purposeful, nutritious foods to encourage happy babies.
You can purchase Clearly Crafted at your local retailer that carries and receive a $1 off with this coupon when you purchase 3 jars!
More than anything else, motherhood has taught me patience. Before I became a mom, I was the type of person who wanted things to go smoothly. These days, if everyone is alive at the end of the day, it’s a win. LOL

I’m not a mother yet, but am looking forward to hopefully becoming one some day. Thanks for sharing your experiences!
My baby is 7 this year and my oldest 12. Motherhood has taught me that I’m strong than I thought. There is nothing i wouldn’t do for my kids. I also learned that the things I love so much can also stress me out the most! hahah I wouldn’t change a thing!
Being a mother has taught me so much, but most of all that I am capable of loving with my whole heart.

We used this brand when we had babies. They always ate it up. There is always such a gamble when introducing new flavors.
Never feel guilty for doing what is best for your family, every family’s situation is different. I know when I started off cloth diapering I thought I could keep up with it. Then I opened a home daycare and that quickly went out the window. You gotta do what you gotta do to stay happy. This baby food line sounds amazing!
Motherhood taught me a lot of things. And although being a mother is not as easy as 1-2-3, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I’m not a mother yet, but am so looking forward to being one in the near future! This is a great post, thanks for sharing!
I am personally not a parent, but I have nieces and nephews. When I babysit them, they teach me flexibility, things might not go the minute by minute way that I planned.
I have two kids and I am so happy about that! The best thing in my life. To be honest I have never tried these kinds of products, because I have access to fresh fruits.
I love all of these natural ingredients in here! I do question what is in some baby food sometimes. These sound like great flavour combinations too!

Motherhood has taught me so much, but most of all it has taught me what is important. It’s made me realise that we shouldn’t sweat the small stuff and to live in the moment.
Motherhood is definitely challenging, but so rewarding! Glad to know about this baby food also because my grandson will be born soon.
Motherhood taught me alot. It made me love whole heartily and unconditionally 🙂 I truly feel blessed to have 2 sons in my life, they are everything for me.
You are so right! I think I learn so many valuable lessons from my toddler every day, they are our biggest teachers. Definitely makes me a better person.
When my twin daughters were first starting to eat solid foods, I only gave them organic baby foods. Ideally I would have wanted to make my own but having small babies and still nursing them exhausted me. This brand is definitely one that looks tasty and healthy too.
I have used happy baby products for my kids & loved it! These are some really good flavors!

After being a parent, your whole world changes. As your little baby come to your life, you become more mature. Now you are taking a single decision after searching a lot. A major problem is to find a brand which provide nutritious foods. Happy to check this product.
Your little one is too cute for words. I love that you found a brand that fits your babies needs.
