Welcome, I’m so glad that you’re here. From one mom to another, it’s nice to “virtually” connect with other all of you knowing that we’re all in this together.
When I first started this blog, I was looking for a way to have a creative outlet and share some of my experiences and knowledge that I’ve learned as a mom.
But over the years, it’s taken on a new life for me. It’s not only a way that I find comfort in my skills as a parent, but it’s also shown me that it’s okay to admit when I don’t know how to do everything as well.
You see…I think we all have this perception in our mind that we’re meant to be “perfect” moms. The kind of mom that truly doesn’t exist but in every single one of our minds, she’s as real as real can be.
Am I a perfect mom? No. Not by definition anyway…but in my mind, I’m the perfect mom for my children and that to me is what I want you to know about me.
A few other things that I can share about me can be found below:
My first passion in life before children was studying Economics. I graduated with a degree in the subject but never got to work in this field as I got married in the summer of my graduation.
Once I knew that becoming a mother was in my future, I knew that my focus and life was forever going to change.
And I can say that after having 5 (yes, 5!) kids, my life is anything but “normal”. I’ve personally dealt with postpartum depression and even dealt with the loss of a miscarriage as well.
It’s hard to imagine how my path of life would be different know without all of these prior events happening, but I do know one thing…
I’m beyond blessed to have the most perfect children that I could have been gifted with. I was able to breastfeed them all for 2 full years and am actually looking forward to becoming a breastfeeding counselor once my youngest baby starts going to school full-time.
My daily “schedule” is never the same but this is due to a lot of various factors. One of my children has severe autism so there are a variety of things that I do deal with daily in regards to that.
Having an autistic child has made me stronger and taught me so much and I can honestly say that I pull so much strength and courage from the hearts and minds of my children.
Oh – and probably just like you, I haven’t slept a full night in YEARS. If you see me with messy mom hair and giant dark circles under my eyes – don’t judge.
Just know that I’m a “normal” mom who is doing her best every single day to give her children a loving home and a safe environment.
My goal now for this blog is to be able to show that I’m a regular mom who’s still learning every single day.
Am I behind on the laundry? Of course. Do I know what I’m making for dinner tonight? Probably not. Am I worried that my kids didn’t remember to brush their teeth this morning? Absolutely.
But do I know in my heart that my children are safe, happy, and loved? 100% yes.
This is why I’m here. This is my purpose right now, in addition to being a mom. To give advice on how it’s okay to think we can do it all, but it’s also okay to admit that we can’t do it all right now.
From one mom to another, we’re in this together. I couldn’t be happier to have you all along for the ride.
