Preparing for Parenting, Wordless Wednesday

This week we asked: What does being prepared look like?

(Read more about being prepared on our resource page, and enjoy this week’s articles on the theme.)

Luschka from Diary of a First Child says “These are the ingredients for Four Thieves Vinegar – a herbal preventative for many sicknesses, including the Plague, if you believe the story!”

Moira loves to pack bags, sometimes three or four, when we are leaving the house.

Moira’s mommy, Shannon, loves to prepare for winter by canning the harvest.

Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes.

From Phoebe: “We went camping for four days. Do you think we packed enough?!”

Phoebe blogs at Living under the iron fist of my tinkers.

From Lauren: “Gathering, washing, sanitizing, and storing linens and towels and other supplies helped put my mind at ease as I prepared for my homebirth. And it worked, too – when the time came for the birth, everything was right where my support team and I needed it, and I didn’t have to think about anything but having a baby.”

Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

At their baby shower, friends and family helped prepare Momma Jorje
and Daddy Elmo to welcome Baby Sasha into their lives.

Dionna prepares for labor and birth by practicing relaxation and yoga (with a little help from Kieran).

Dionna blogs at Code Name: Mama.
