Advice to New Parents

Hey Y’all. It’s Erin.

Recently, I’ve been doing  “self discovery” journal prompts. 

I’ve just been searching on pinterest or google and trying out some that I find.

It’s been my effort towards self care.

Most of the time they’re so deep that I struggle to answer.

“Describe your perfect day.”

“Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”

“What would you do with $1000?”

These are just a few of the ones that I’ve had a hard time answering.

“What advice would you give your younger self?”

I want to share my response in an open letter to new parents.

I am already 7 months pregnant and summer has gotten a lot less exciting this year because I am HOT and SWEATY.
