MEET SUPPORTING CHAOS
Welcome to our chaos! We imagine since you’re here, you might have a little chaos of your own at home. Or maybe coming soon! We’re Gracie and Sammy and excited to have you here.
We’re sisters who have found ourselves in a similar situation, being mamas to toddlers (3 months apart) and babies (2-weeks apart). However, we have different backgrounds and parenting styles.
Gracie, with a background in child development, has always been nothing short of a child guru. Even from a young age, she’s had an indescribable bond with children. She carried this gift with her from working in preschools, her degrees, teaching kindergarten, and first grade, and now with her own two sweet girls, Harley and Mila. Being a mama has given her a new perspective on her passions of development and education by teaching her how to integrate learning into a realistic chaotic household!
Sammy, with a business background, never really considered herself a “kid person,” but always knew she wanted to be a mama! She’s always enjoyed an element of strategy, from her business courses to working in commercial real estate and now in parenting to her two sweet boys, Dawson and Cooper. Being a mama has sparked a passion in strategic ways to simplify parenting and celebrating being the type of parent that brings you happiness!
Much like our backgrounds, our parenting styles are different. Sight words and schedules bring Gracie happiness. While it’s the simple hacks and a broad strategy for a more go-with-the-flow approach that resonates better with Sammy.
We’ve learned that we thrive when embracing our strengths and not dwelling on the things we don’t love in parenting. And we are walking examples of how this is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
When trying new things with our toddlers, it’s really easy to try it once and throw it to the curb or have it blow up once and say it isn’t working anymore. Behavior interventions take time and learning for both you and your toddler.
Whenever I’m catching up with a friend who doesn’t yet have kids, and they tell me they’ve been arguing a lot with their partner, I can’t help but make my first thought, “what do they have to fight about? They don’t even have kids”. Which I know is wrong.
I always pictured myself as a mama one day. I dreamt about it. Felt it.
But being completely honest with you, when I’d fantasize about my family one day, I always pictured having girls. As the oldest sister of four girls, I just thought obviously I would have girls too.
