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

    1. 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?

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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. πŸ™‚

    1. 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!!

  5. 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.

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

  6. OVERstressed. I take everything to heart and worry about every little thing. I didn’t enjoy my pregnancy because of it, which in the end didn’t matter because what I was so worried about and trying to avoid happened anyway. Turned out to be not the end of the world and I have a beautiful son πŸ™‚

    1. You had an incredible journey bringing your little man into this world, Randa. Maybe you had a sixth sense the whole time, maybe it was all underlying stress..?? Ya, I also OVERthink everything!! lol

  7. Congrats. I remember my first pregancy, I was sick for the few few months, I had heartburn. It was all worth it.

  8. I have to go with what Theresa said. I was sick the entire length of both of my pregnancies. I’m glad I did it, but I’m also glad that part is over!

  9. That’s a great pic of you. One thing I can remember about my motherhood journey is being OVERworked. Not by the kids, but work. I really wish I could have been a SAHM. There are many more things I wish I could have taught my children myself.


    1. Goos one Sophia! I worked right up DD with my oldest, it was tough since it had lifting involved. Then, I worked right until before I had the twins – I know exactly what you mean, I missed so much when my first was little. Makes me sad to think about it.

    1. That was with Belle – she was born 4 days before her Due Date. I was induced with the twins at 36 weeks, since i was measuring 50 weeks. Seriously. I was a whale. I think I have a photo on FB, of us at the fair just before – walked all day out there in the blistering heat and they wouldn’t budge. I wasn’t happy, so I decided to evict them. lol

    1. pretty at the time, funny how I already see it as terribly outdated! 2004!
      I must be getting old…

    1. Hi Karren.
      Thank you and nope, they are fraternal – so different in each and every way.
      In fact, I have strangers that argue with me about them being twins. Honestly.

  10. I would say I’m OVER enthusiastic sometimes! lol You looked so cute preggers. I looked like the Michelan Man. Ha!

    1. Speaking of, did you see me when I was PG with the twins? Michelan Man and a half. Whoa!

  11. I’m a Daddy, but I was OVERwhelmed with joy when my son was born, OVERcome with a little helplessness as I couldn’t do anything to ease the pain, and now I’m OVERwhelmed with fear/anxiety as my son is going to be starting school very soon πŸ™

    1. Nice to get a Daddy’s opinion, you said it perfectly! You’ll have to snag a photo and put that up when Fisher-Price launches that section of the site!

    1. Amen! What is it about parenting and the inability to say no, and take on way too much?!

  12. That’s a great picture, and the room did look nice!!

    I’d say overextended…I often times find myself overextended, but I do it to myself.

  13. I’m over confident. It’s kind of my niche πŸ™‚

  14. Pregnant with twins both times and working full time until close to the end both times, I would have to say the word was OVERwhelmed!

    1. What?!!? TWo sets Heidi? Wow woman, we need to chat more. Are you on Twitter?
      OVERwhelmed, yes and yes!!

      1. That’s EXACTLY how I feel about you….Blesssed….. to have you in my life!!! πŸ™‚

  15. I was overjoyed at the thought of being a mother. Our kids bring me joy each and every day. Love them!

  16. Love that Cabbage Patch kid in the crib. I was OVER pregnancy by 36 week with my first. I had been on bedrest by 6 weeks at that point and wanted out! LOL

    1. That one is Wayne, hubbys cabbage patch from when he was a kid. I also have my 3.
      I’m glad I was never put on bedrest, I’m not the type to lay and relax, how did you pass the time?
