Parenting is so OVERemotional, no-one can argue with that.

In February, Fisher-Price will be launching their OVERjoyed Campaign, celebrating the Real Joys of Motherhood. Launching soon, you’ll be able to share a photo with your ‘OVER___’ caption, marking a special moment of your journey.

As a Fisher-Price Mom Ambassador, I’ll also be sharing my memories. Being the first, I thought I’d start from the beginning. The moment that started my motherhood story.

When I was expecting my Isabelle, circa 2004.

I call this, OVERexcited as she was highly OVERanticipated and while at times I was way too OVERstimulated. Yet I embraced pregnancy and what was to come, 100%.

I dived into reading parenting books and journalling my pregnancy {I guess you could call it my first blog!}.  As well, I embraced new projects like shopping for gear and decorating the room. While I didn’t know that Isabelle was a ‘she’ until she was born, I must have had a feeling. Looking back,  what I bought and how I decorated was so feminine. She was meant to be!

So, here’s the beginning of ‘my Motherhood‘.


Link up and tell me in a comment, What would your OVER___ moment be?

… and yes, I am never, ever wordless. Call me OVERchatty.

  1. What a pretty room Tammi!

    I have to say over-paranoid. When I had my first child I read through all the illnesses and such. But good to know!

    • Tammi says:

      Yes! With my first I was OVERparanoid too, I recall running away from lunch meat in fear. Everything, good and bad, was a learning experience, right?

  3. What a nice photo

    Have a superlicious week :-)

  4. Beautiful room. And congrats to you if I haven’t already said so in previous comments.

  5. I would say Over-Sick. Morning sickness the whole 9 months, even vomiting as I was delivering lol. Needless to say, I am not one who enjoys being pregnant.

  6. I was over-sick too! Was just awful…but it was worth it in the end :)

  7. Congrats! Hope all goes well with the upcoming birth.

  8. Such a beautiful lady – you are absolutely glowing!

  9. With my first pregnancy, there was a lot of OVER eating! It was my license to eat. I gained 65 lbs. Yikes! But once he was born I was OVER joyed. What a blessing both kids are. :)

    • Tammi says:

      YES!! Same here, OVEReat – that was me as well. I gained as much with my first as I did with the twins! Chips and dip with slurpees, that was my craving with my first. I went at it hardcore!!

  10. Beautiful shot! Thanks for hosting Tammi! Happy WW!

  11. How fun! I loved reading this. Hmm.. I have to get back to you on my over moment.. because right now I am OVER tired, lol!

  12. I’m definitely OVERextended right now. I never stop and have a hard time saying no. Especially to events the kids want to go to.

  13. I remember my first pregnancy so well, every milestone was full of excitement, I would say I was OVERjoyed!

  14. You look great!

    With my first I was just so excited. I have to say I was scared of the birth. I had to have a c-section.

    • Tammi says:

      Surgery is always nerve wracking, and I guess you can lump it all together and say that nothing in parenting ever goes as planned!
