When I first became a mom there was one stage that I dreaded the most. The “picky eater” stage. The thought of going to battle with a mini food terrorist turned up the mom anxiety to the max. It was difficult enough having to make a home cooked meal after a long day at work, and adding a picky eater to that was challenging to say the least. I’m also sensitive when it comes to being of service to someone. I always want to do a good job, especially when it comes to cooking for my family. I found myself getting a little upset 😑 when my toddler refused the wonderfully presented, 4 course meal I made with all 5 food groups 🤣. I needed to set more realistic expectations I know haha.
A Sunday (glimpse) in the life of this mother of two.
It always starts with a huge cup of coffee, moves on to getting my kids ready for the day, then some fun mixed in with errands (to help get the rest of the week going), some meal prepping, coffee #2 haha, and ending with my kids’ bedtime routine and relaxing on the couch with my love 💕.
I can’t take all the credit though and am happy to say that my fiancé Mike is a very involved father to our kids, and partner in managing our home. We actually balance each other out well when it comes to responsibilities of the home. I’ll cook, he’ll clean. He’ll throw in the load of laundry, I’ll fold it all. We’ll take turns bathing the kids and putting them to bed. We’re like a well oiled machine!
Part of that success is the love and respect we have for each other (insert cheesy emoticon) and the other part is having the tools/technology to succeed haha. This leads me to the holy grail of apps for Couples, The Couple App (name doing its justice).
Now that summer is coming to a close, and before I switch out my wardrobe, I’d like to take a moment to commemorate 21, Forever 21 work outfits I wore this past summer. 🙂🙃
Before I worked at my current company, I used to work at a digital advertising agency for 8 years. It was a very relaxed environment with an even more laid back dress code policy. Sometimes I used to roll into work in my Minnie Mouse pajama sweater 😂 after a long night (before kids, if you know what I mean 😉). I never had to have 2 different wardrobes for work and outside of work, or think about my outfit violating any kind of dress code, until now.
When I found out I was having a girl I was so excited about the thought of making her clothes. This is the first piece (of many to come) that I made for Harlow. UGH! Just look how cute she is! Almost 5 months old. She’s so curious about the world lately. She’s already rolling around trying to crawl. She loves her brother so much, it’s so heartwarming to see. You have to check out my Instagram Stories with them two!
