As we are about to become parents for the first time, my fiancee and I decided to make sure we learn as much as we can before our little Zoe arrives. One of the things we did was subscribe to Parenting Magazine. You can choose the age group of information that you recieve. We get Parenting Early Years. Yes, I actually put down my fashion magazines and all celeberaty gossip has been put on hold! This magazine has actually proven to be an enjoyable read. There are mommy work out tips menu plans as well as some yummy recipies. Tips on how to keep your little one busy when you are out and about with errands. I really enjoy the health tips that they give you. Last months issue gave a great tip on shrinking mosquito bites. (Use anti-persperant on the bite).
The last page has one of my faveorite features... The parenting top ten. It kind of reminds me of Cosmopolitans' Ten Commandment list. It featured the top ten ironies of motherhood this month. They were really cute. It's nice to read the columns where people have shared their personal parenting experiences letting the rest of us newbies know that we are not alone in the learning process.
I am really glad that there is this type of information availeable to us and it is done in a friendly lighthearted manor that we can enjoy.
