I bet you're saying to yourself, what a funny picture to put up for your About Me page. It's not a professional photo. No - it's me - hiding from my littles in my closet with a full glass of wine! And I love this photo because it shows you the reality of me. I love my kids but they test my patience and help to keep the wine and beer industry in business LMAO.
I am an open book and enjoy talking so you may find me rambling from time to time! Also I swear, like a lot, so now you've been warned.
This blog started for a few reasons.
One, I love sharing stories about my kids so I enjoy having a place I can write out fun stories and memories.
Two, there are so many opinions about what is right or wrong in parenting and it can be overwhelming but I find I don't always relate to the majority crowd so this is a safe space to let others know it's okay to be different aka the take the easy route mom and still love your kids unconditionally. I'll give my own advice and tips and tricks that have worked well for our family when trying to balance work and family, etc.
I also get that this might mean I isolate from some parents that don't agree with how I choose to raise my kids but I really hope not because at the end of the day we all just want to keep our kids alive, love on them and do the best we can do. Even if we don't agree - I hope you stick around as I'm all about acceptance for everyone, even if we do things different.
Third, because I want to travel to cool mom conferences and shit and it helps to have work support my momepeuner habits with a blog!
As a visitor here, I want you to feel you are part of a fantastic community. Each parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent, godparent, friend or acquaintance is a piece of our family and help influence our story. It helps to hear other peoples stories to either relate to them, empathize with them, support and lift them up when needed or just laugh together. We're all connected to living with littles in one way or another so if I can provide you with some advice or answer questions and you can provide me with the same or laughter or beer then it's a win, win. But really I live with littles so send beer!!!
Thank you so much for being part of this community. I'm also on Facebook and Instagram the most so you can always follow me there too.
