Molly Mathews

My name is Molly. I have been married for 5 years and have two children. A 10 year old step-son, a 2 year old daughter and I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with a boy! I live in the town I grew up in and have a large family that I see often. We all live close to each other right now and I hope it stays that way as we draw a lot of support from one another. I have been a nurse for 6 years, mostly in the emergency department, and I love my job. Since young childhood I dreamed of being a nurse and a mom and here I am both! I couldn't have imagined how difficult the journey would be but neither could I have fathomed the Joy that would come from both. Becoming a mom has made me into a better person in many ways and a bit of a crazy worry wart in other ways! Having support from other moms who have been there before or are there with you makes all the difference in the world!

Keeping Baby Safe for Summer Time Fun

Everyday the weather becomes warmer and warmer. We all know how Jacksonville, NC feels in the summer time. Super hot and super humid. These are not the best conditions for a little baby without the right protection. I insist that my little baby wears sunscreen and a hat whenever she is going to be in the heat for awhile.

The daycare she attends often takes all of the little babies outside if the weather is nice. There is a huge canopy setup where all of the caregivers and baby’s can lounge in the grass and enjoy the outdoor breeze. There is plenty of shade and the grass is like astro turf so I’m not too worried ab out her getting bug bites.  I specify that I would lik

e caregivers to put sunblock on her whenever they go  outside. Even though she is in the shade sun rays can stay do harm in the shade.

We are planning a family trip to the beach in a few weeks and I am making all of the necessary arrangements to keep her safe at the beach and by the poolside.  I bought her a bigger round hat, flip flops, and cool clothing. I also bought her a floater jacket to wear in the pool. It fits like a life jacket so she is free to move her legs and arms and splash around. This way she isn’t confined to an inner tube. No matter what I always keep my eyes on her in the water because anything can happen in the blink of an eye.
