30 Day Challenge Update

Today is day 30 of my 30 day challenge I set for myself. Boy was my rough draft really a rough draft. If you haven’t read it yet, you can read it here. I learned a lot the last 30 days and have redefined my challenge ‘guidelines.’ I didn’t really know what I needed until I started and I have decided to continue into a 60 day challenge.

She Misses Me Now

The last year has been crazy. We’ve navigated our way through quarantine, a pandemic, devastating fires, and distance learning. Our world was turned upside down and we adapted the best we could. Was it easy, no, but we did the best we could. Sometimes that’s all you can do.

Why Are Moms So Quick To Judge Other Moms?

Last week one of my amazing supporters asked a great question, “why are moms so quick to judge other moms?” While I did answer her with my opinion in my last Q&A, I would like to dive more in depth into it. Mom shaming or judgement from other parents is something we’ve all had to deal with at one point or another. Why? Let’s find out.

In The Blink Of An Eye

March 7th 2006 my water broke. It was a flurry of emotions. I was terrified, excited, scared, happy, sad. My hormones were all over the place and I was to young to fully understand all that I was about to go through. Checking into the hospital made it real. I was having a baby, now today. A mere 8 hours later at 5:03 AM my baby boy was born. This sweet precious chubby face. I did it. I had my baby.

Your Mental Health Doesn’t Define You

“It was a normal day. She took her kids to school. Cleaned the house. Went to work. Made dinner. Cleaned again. Prepared everything for the next day. As she went to wash her face before bed, she cried. Tears streamed down her face uncontrollably. To hide her tears she hopped in the shower. Crying in the shower meant no one would notice right? As she stared in the mirror eyes red and puffy she felt a sadness…..”

Mom Brain

I’ve been sitting here staring at a blank page for almost an hour now. My brain literally will not work. I can’t think. There’s nothing running through my head. That says a lot considering there’s always at least one hundred things running through my head at all times. Did I lock the door, are the dogs outside, is my son’s dentist appointment today. You know the usual mom things. It’s the perfect example of the mom brain.

Self Talk

Fun fact, not everyone has an inner voice. As someone that’s always had one, that seems weird. My daughter taught me that. She learned it in school. Have you ever thought about the way you talk to yourself? That inner voice inside your head that runs its mouth. Sometimes it says nice things and sometimes it’s not so nice. Often we don’t even realize what it’s saying until it’s said.

30 Day Find Myself Challenge

The last year has been rough and I’m not talking about the pandemic and everything that has brought or caused. I mean for me personally. I have lost myself over the last year. I’ve put so much time into everything and everyone. I have become lazy. I have inadvertently not put in the time to take care of myself. Even when I try, it never lasts.

I Didn’t Choose The Mom Life, The Mom Life Chose Me

Literally the mom life chose me. I’ve talked about it before, I never wanted to be a mom. Changing diapers, puke, snotty noses – No thank you. I’ll pass. Obviously the universe had other plans and obviously I was a dumb kid that made dumb mistakes and life started early. I wouldn’t change a thing and can’t imagine my life any other way.
