Emily Blunt's Short words on Parenthood

emily blunt motherhood

Happy Monday! It is my first Monday of maternity leave and the Monday of Christmas week. A lot, and at the same time a little, going on over here. The weather has been in the mid 50's all weekend and we are greeted with sunshine today in the Pacific NW. This must be what the holidays in California is like... ok maybe on a bad day.

Over the weekend I read this article profiling Emily Blunt from the latest issue of The Edit. She covers her career, fashion and hopes for the future while also briefly touching on motherhood. This quote from her really rang true for me so I wanted to share it with other new parents out there- hopefully it serves as a little confidence booster as you begin your ascent into parenting.

“[Raising children] is such a fear-based industry,” says the actress. “There used to be one book that everyone read, now there’s How to Raise a Gluten-free Baby, How to Raise a Scientific Baby... It’s insanity! So I haven’t read anything, I’m just letting her do her own thing.”

Enjoy the week! A post taking you all through the baby room will be coming up in the next day or so, as well as another guest post, this time from my friend Regan. Stay tuned!
