Meet the Sunshine Mommies
Mary and Megan met in high school, in a small community in the rural Midwest. It was a quiet place: both grew up in houses (more than) six miles from the closest stop light!
And no, they didn’t grow up in the 1880s….
Though their kids will one day think of that quip too….
Their mothers were teachers and inspired them with a love of reading, an interest in history, and a longing to travel. Even though life made Mary a “city mouse” in an urban area in the South, and Megan remained a “country mouse” in the Midwest, they got together every year for fun world-wide adventures.
In short, Mary and Megan loved their 20s.
But then came boyfriends who turned to husbands who helped produce children. And before either could say “wah-wah,” life as they’d known it had changed.
They were now mommies, which is a whole new type of grand adventure. Unfortunately, there are no travel guides or instruction manuals for parenting. What there is: helpful advice from friends. And that’s what this website is about.
Are you a new mom struggling with what to buy, what to feed, how to get back in shape, how to cope with your new life? Do you need a friend who understands? Us too.
Megan and Mary each handle things a little bit differently, but that’s what being a mom is about: choosing what works best for you. So let us be the guinea pigs. Let us share what succeeded and what didn’t, so hopefully you save the mistakes we had to make.
Between the two of us, we hope you find a sympathetic ear or just the tip or trick you needed to get through this unique stage of life. It’s better with friends.
Love, the Sunshine Mommies
