Hello and welcome to Mama Bear Britt. A bit about me…I married my high school sweetheart, who I met at the age of 15. We have a smart and sassy daughter and sweet as pie little boy. We live in southern California and try to give our kids a well-rounded childhood, filled with adventure, exploration, creativity, and love. We try to foster a love for learning and human kindness.
For all of my adult life, I have worked with children. For the past decade, I have worked as a child development specialist and managed preschools. I have a Masters degree in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Early Child Development, with coursework in infant mental health and K-12 Special Education.
For years I have felt confident and competent in my ability to counsel parents with each developmental milestone and hurdle; but let me just say, becoming a parent for the first time is such a different world. Never before have I experienced the overwhelming sense of love and responsibility to be the sole caretaker of a human being. Never before have I questioned and re-questioned every move I make, in fear of not making the correct one. Never before have I been so completely enraptured in another person. The journey of becoming a parent is the most exciting one I have ever embarked on and I hope to share this journey with you.
I hope this website provides a sense of connection to the vast community of parenthood and everything that it entails. It’s not always fun, easy and pretty, but it is always impactful. We are all on this wonderful and wonderfully challenging road together.
