Parenting is hands down the hardest job I’ve ever had. Every time I’ve thought I had it all down pat, BAM, my kids reached a new milestone and throw my whole world off-kilter. When they were younger, I’d write down these milestones in a paper planner and dial up their abuelas to let them know what was going on. My kids are 15 and 12 now, and I also have a 13-year-old stepson.
As you can imagine, things have changed significantly since I had my babies. Technology is quickly evolving and helps simplify everything, including motherhood. Today, new parents have WeeSchool, the brainchild of Julie Clark, the mom who created Baby Einstein. WeeSchool uses today’s technology to create the most complete educational experience for babies and toddlers. And right now until June 1st, you can download the WeeSchool App and register for free, lifetime access to all the Premium WeeSchool content and features.
Because my extended family lives in a different country, when my kids were little I also had to get creative when it came to sharing their milestones with their grandparents, aunts and uncles—as if being a mom wasn’t enough work. I felt scattered all the time. It was hard to keep up with the demands of motherhood while feeling that I was doing the best for my babies’ development and sharing it with the rest of the family.
Today, there is the WeeSchool App, the all-in-one smart parenting app which you can download here by June 1 and you or your daughter can register for free, lifetime access to all Premium WeeSchool content and features. Here’s how it can help new moms now compared to when I had my babies.
Sharing memories, then and now:
Then: I first relied on mailing hard prints of photos via snail mail. By the time baby number two came around, I had a digital camera and I was able to e-mail the pictures.
Now: There are apps like the brand new WeeSchool, created by Julie Clark of Baby Einstein fame, that helps new moms capture memories in a Journal. WeeSchool automatically files photos and videos into journals that mom can share with grandma, friends and family.
Tracking milestones, then and now:
Then: I would read books and later online articles to make sure that my babies were hitting their milestones.
Now: With the WeeSchool app, you can track your child’s development through 117 key milestones. The app provides prompts for you to support these milestones too, and then once again, share them with loved ones.
Enriching daily routines, then and now:
Then: I had to build a library of books to read to my babies, buy CDs of lullabies for bedtime and bathtime.
Now: The WeSchool app includes tools such as classical musical tunes, a catalog of original ebooks and soundscapes you can use to enrich daily routines.
Buying toys then and now:
Then: Toy fads come and go, and it was hard to keep up with everything I thought my babies needed.
Now: The WeeSchool Toy Store, right in the app, showcases the only 43 toys you need to get your child from birth to age 3 with a fully rounded learning experience!
Whether you’re a new mom or a new grandma, I encourage you to download the WeeSchool App here by June 1 and you can register for free, lifetime access to all Premium WeeSchool content and features.
