Some days kids can be perfect angels. Other days, eh, not so much. For the sake of my sanity, I am thoroughly hoping that my kids are the latter today, because after last night and this morning, I feel like I’m going to lose it. To elaborate, here’s my #momlife story of the day:
New Year’s Resolution or nah?
New Year’s Resolutions have never really been my thing. I have seen so many people that decide that they want to make a change at some point throughout the year, and for whatever reason they choose to wait until the New Year. While I understand the concept of turning over a new leaf, it truly baffles me to wait on a holiday. If you really want to make a change, today is the best day. But of course, that’s just my opinion. Anyways, instead of New Year’s Resolutions, this year I decided to make some long-term life goals.
One of the biggest parts of being a blogger is reading other blogs and connecting with their authors! I get asked a lot about which blogs are my favorite, so I wanted to take a second to give y’all my top blog recommendations:
In this day and age, more and more families are contemplating the decision to home school their precious babies. It has become extremely common to come across stories about a child being abused in day care, a teacher mistreating a student, or even students retaliating against their school. Before my husband and I even considered dating, we both discussed that we would like our future children to be home schooled. Once our first child was conceived, it was set in stone. No matter what sacrifices were necessary, we would be homeschooling.
As most of you know, yesterday was the first day of my 31 Days of May Blogging Challenge that I am hosting. Each day I post three writing prompts to the Facebook challenge group. Writing is hard, but coming up with creative prompts that everyone in the group can relate to is even harder. Yesterday, I was having trouble coming up with new prompts so I started to pray about it. And that’s when it hit me. Hide and seek.
From a young age, I have always had the desire to be a mom. I also knew that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. When I had my oldest, I just didn’t see that luxury in my cards. Four years later, and here I am: full-time blogger, part-time social media evaluator, author, and getting ready to start a business! As you can imagine, my day-to-day life is pretty hectic. There is a lot of research involved in my day, along with being a caretaker to my littles, homeschooling, working, and also trying to make time for myself. One of the most common questions I get is, “How do you manage working from home with kids?”
Short answer: GOALS.
To get back in the swing of things, I have decided to host a blogging challenge for the entire month of May!
23 years ago, on this very day, a legend was born. Just kidding. It’s my birthday, though. And in honor of my 23rd birthday here are 23 random facts about me.
As most of you have noticed, and pointed out, I have been pretty MIA lately. For those of you that receive the weekly newsletter, I have let y’all in on my recent struggles a little bit. (If you aren’t already receiving the newsletter, you can click here to sign up.) Long story short, I needed a mental health break. At some point, we all have to recognize our frustrations for what they are and take responsibility for them.
With Easter quickly approaching, we have been receiving numerous invitations to attend different Easter Egg hunts. I have also been receiving messages asking what I am putting in my kids Easter baskets. Our family does not participate in Halloween, and my children know that Santa is just a character. Yes, at the ages of 2 and 4. And the Easter Bunny doesn’t visit my kids either.
