About Me

I’m Shannon and I’m a Mama. I am raising a little tribe of crazy close kiddos. Gray (hence the name graytmama), Wynn, and Conn. I have been a crazy, researching lunatic since before I was even growing a tiny human. It has been my mission to read every book, look at every website, and talk to anyone who would listen about pregnancy, and raising a child. I don’t claim to be an expert, and I only try and write about things I have experienced myself. I have a super soft spot for anyone trying to get pregnant, those who are pregnant, and those who are already on the path to bringing up a little person.


If you are breastfeeding, that’s awesome! Its harder than most think. Keep it up!

If you just quit breastfeeding. Its great you did it for as long as you did.

If you failed at breastfeeding, I’m SO sorry, at least you gave it your all.

If you are bottle feeding, perfect! Now, give yourself a break and go buy at bottle warmer.

If you vaccinate your kids on schedule, that’s awesome!

If you follow an alternative vaccine schedule, that’s wonderful! Good job researching!

If you co-sleep, that’s wonderful, make sure you steal lots of kisses in the morning! XOXO

If baby sleeps in their crib in their own room, that’s great! Cherish that big smile when you go in to get them in the morning.

If you used a no cry sleep solution, you must have the patience of a saint.

If you used a cry it out method, you really deserve a medal for going through it, and maybe a glass of wine!

If you make your own baby food, great job! That’s a lot of work and a big mess!

If you buy baby food, go ahead and use that extra time to bang on the pots with your little one!

If you are a working mama, go conquer the world, and show that child how to do it too!

If you are a stay at home Mama, bless your heart, and make sure to start happy hour early, you’re gonna need it!

No matter how you are marching through parenthood, you are a GraytMama!
