What does mama on the go mean to you? To me it just means that were an active family that enjoys doing lots of fun activities. These activities teach our daughter through play, doing, learning and socialization.
I see alot of comments on my instagram posts often scolding or mama shaming us for traveling and doing alot of things with Adora, our 6month old baby. While we do acknowledge every LO is different our baby really really really enjoys doing things. She can be miss FUSSY pants in her play area but as soon as we take her outside she’s having the time of her life. Babies are just like us adults, they love stimulation, they love attention, and they love to be doing things.
I think these pics say it themselves, Adora just wants to be “on the go” and so do I! 🙂 I really think that for Adora there are so many new things and experiences that she has to learn about and explore and shes curious about. So what if she won’t remember every little experience, she is still making an imprint in her little baby brain about each one. Each time her little 4month old brain process touching a fish, or a shell. Her little week old brian smells the ocean, and her 5month old brain goes back she starts to recognize that all these experiences are fun and safe and she will start to imprint the smells and colors and sounds and love them when she is older and can actually make a memory that will last her lifetime.
I am not just a mama on the go, were a learning team on the go! We learn from each other and develop things that make each of us excited to learn and curious about the world. After all learning is meant to be a fun interactive activity. I want Adora to know that life isn’t about making money to buy stuff, but exploring the world and leaving a more positive mark. It’s about learning and continuing to be curious the rest of her life. I want her to help to make a positive impact everywhere she goes and to continue to love everything about this world and learning. After all isn’t it better for me to take her to an interactive learning exhibit at a museum, or on a hike where she up close insects and how biodiversity works, and even uses a magnifying glass, rather then give her a toy that lights up and make noises. I give her expose to the Aurora in Canada that lights up the sky, or a simple rainbow mist exhibit that teaches how colors, prisms and light reflections. We build light boxes, make art work, build felt boards, make our own wooden blocks and make up songs to teach each other about the world.
So for us mama and baby team on the go means that we cant wait to learn, explore and make the world a better place by doing so. 🙂 We think shes a pretty happy baby! :)_

I think you are doing everything just right for you and Adora. It’s so very easy for us as moms to judge the “mothering skills” (and isn’t it really just a learning process for us all?) of others. It is clear you and Brendon have placed your baby girl at the center of your universe, and that is what truly matters. I delight in living vicariously through Adora’s adventures with you both!
Thank you for the positive feedback! We all have different mom skills and parenting ways and we love her and want her to love life and I agree that is whats important!
