What is a babymoon, you say?


babymoon - (n.) The brief but happy period of time when a family welcomes a new baby to their world.


I know, it's not what wikipedia says, but traditionally, the babymoon is the time AFTER the baby is born, like the honeymoon is the short trip AFTER the wedding, see?

So it's the time for the new family to get adjust to their new lives together, to get to know the baby who has recently show his or her sweet face, and for mom to get her land legs back (if you've ever given birth you know what I'm talking about there!)

Sometimes I get weird looks when I tell my shop name, so I just wanted to put this out there to clarify for everyone what I mean.

The funny thing is, since I have so many kids, I've gotten to have lots of babymoons! I am so thankful that I have a great family who helps out during the babymoon and super friends who go over and above to help with the kids who aren't always completely thrilled by the grittier aspects of the babymoon!
