Caring for Cubs. Keeping it Real.

For mamas who feel like they don’t know what they’re doing; for parents of preschoolers, toddlers, infants; for the expecting mama; for the crunchy mama AND the nearly crunchy mama, I’m here to tell you that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Hi, I’m Emily Wykes, and my job is to help YOU realize YOU are the best mama for your kids. I’m here to provide you with all the information and resources you need to succeed in parenting!

I created Lil Mama Bear Blog to support and encourage mamas of small children. It takes a village to raise a cub, and it’s time to put away the facade and get down to the nitty-gritty truth of being a parent. It’s hard, and it’s messy. And we have to be honest if we’re ever going to grow.

My family consists of my incredible husband, Ryan, and my 16-month old daughter, Genesis. By God’s grace, these two keep me motivated every day to be the best mama/wife I can be. No matter how many peas are smashed into the rug, how many dishes are still piled in the sink, or how much laundry rises high as the Texas sky, at the end of the day I get to be home with my best friend and tiny bear cub.

A couple things about me: I’m incredibly impatient, and thus horrible at most DIY projects (if you ever see me posting one, that means it’s hella easy!). I am also very bad at doing makeup and hair, which is why I am in love with my current routine because it makes me look fabulous without having any creativity at all. ♥ While most girls grew out of it at age 12, I am still secretly obsessed with horses and plan [and pray] that someday I can have my own. Writing has been my clearest form of communication since age 6, and I am excited about the possibilities blogging brings!

Come along with me as we tackle this parenting thing together!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Love, Emily XOXO
