It is an incredibly stressful time. Not only are we adjusting to constant life at home, but we are also trying to homeschool our kids. Timmy and I were so nervous about it in the beginning. Our biggest goal right now (apart from staying home and safe) is continuing to advance Sonny’s development and teaching him as best we can. I hope what you are about to read gives you a lot of relief and encouragement for homeschooling!
Like most schools, Sonny’s has been canceled until likely after his spring break which is Mid April. It is important to us that we continue to encourage and support his development so we got him some enriching Montessori style toys.
This week on WITH WHIT, I spoke with two inspiring women, Sharon Feldstein and Patsy Noah. They are BFFs, celebrity moms and the founders of YourMomCares! Sharon is Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein’s mom and Patsy Noah is Adam Levine’s mom! I was so excited to sit down with them to talk about their company YourMomCares, a non-profit fighting for children’s mental health.

Hi guys!! Happy Almost Mother’s Day to all the incredible moms out there! This is my second Mother’s Day with Sonny, and this year has already been extra special. Definitely much more fulfilling and enjoyable than the first ;). Not that I didn’t love my first year, but it was trying, as many of you know. The infant stage was hard but the toddler phase is just the best. I am SOOOO excited now to wake up and be a mom to Sonny every single morning.
“Eat when you’re hungry. Stop when you’re full. Listen to your body.” I got these words of wisdom from Jessica Diamond, MPH, RDN as she helped me understand what new moms really need to replenish, rebuild and recover after childbirth. Those fancy letters after her name mean that Jessica is a maternal and child registered dietitian and nutritionist, and she’s taught me so much about the good, the bad, and the don’t-feel-guilty of postpartum nutrition.
Every parent of a toddler is eventually faced with the challenge of moving their little one from two naps down to one. It’s one of the top sleep questions we hear from parents. Before we get into the specifics of an effective and successful nap transition, you should know that I firmly believe that naps are a fundamental component of healthy sleep. A child who gets enough rest during the day will sleep better at night than one who doesn’t.
