Being a stay-at-home mom is a big deal. A huge life changing, earth shaking undertaking. But…
So is being a working mom- just being a mom is a huge life changing, earth shaking undertaking. And while I think this guide may be helpful to any mom, working or not, the focus is on stay-at-home moms because that is what I know best. But please know that know matter what kind of mom you are, (birth, adopted, foster, or whatever) if you are raising tiny humans with tender, loving care, you are awesome and I support you.
Mom burnout is so real, especially in 2020. This year is HARD. Nowhere to go, everything is closed. We’re home with the kids ALL the time. Often with no help. It’s lonely, overwhelming, frustrating, anxiety-inducing and even depressing. For many, it’s a doubly awful year because of the fires and extreme weather. We’ve had smoke in […]Read More
Easter hasn’t always held a special place in my heart. I love all of our Easter family traditions – I love the big meal and how we cook together and eat together, I love watching my kids color eggs, I love hiding plastic eggs and watching my kids’ faces light up when the eggs are found and opened, and I also love putting together special Easter outfits for my kids (even though my 11 and 15 year old are over this tradition and my toddler prefers to be naked.) But we don’t necessarily celebrate the religious aspect of Easter (although we have family discussions about it), and I don’t love all the candy and sugar it’s associated with, and I don’t love the pressure society seems to put onto parents about celebrating the arrival of the Easter bunny and filling basket with loads of chocolates, jelly beans, and peeps – the latter of which usually end up in the trash because we all know when there’s a choice between jelly beans, peeps, and chocolate, chocolate will always win.Read More
Entrepreneurship in today’s world is so exciting! With the internet, there are so many opportunities out there, and so many ways to start your own business. If you can create content, provide a service, or sell a product, you can start your own business!
So, why not use this as a teaching opportunity for our kids?
Oh, eczema how much I loathe you. The enthusiasm with which you attack and spread your nasty red patches all over our precious tiny humans disgusts me. Our babies are pure and innocent, and their skin so delicate. And it’s just not fair that you can come in whenever you feel like it, making them itchy and uncomfortable. Seriously, though eczema is the devil.Read More
I love that I get to stay home with my kids, but I also love making money – I mean, who doesn’t? Not to mention, living off of one income can be challenging! It is trickier and a little more of a challenge finding ways to make money with little ones, and without the help […]Read More
I am struggling today. I would really love to close my laptop, put my pj’s back on, and veg out with Netflix. But I can’t.
I’m a mom, and I have stuff to do.
So, how do I get myself going when I don’t feel like it?
Today, I had a really weird experience. My baby outgrew his infant car seat a few months ago and I wasn’t sure what to do with it, as none of my friends/family are pregnant right now or in need of one, so I decided to post it for sale on the LetGo app. It took […]Read More
