I know we’re week three into the new year, and this post may seem a little tardy haha, but I’ve been adjusting to a new routine and also, mom life 🤷🏼♀️. I wanted to reflect on the wonderful year I had in 2017. In the past I’ve always been so quick to close the door on another year, and start fresh in the new year, but I wanted to show my gratitude to 2017. It was such an accomplishing year for me. There were so many blessings. I birthed a baby, birthed a blog, blossomed in my role as a mother (of now two), and fulfilled one of my career long dreams.
Currently packing away all the holiday decor, and last minute decide to spruce up my home decor a bit because… new year, new me right haha 💁🏼♀️! Part of my mini home decor makeover was receiving our stylish, cushioned play mat from Comfort Design Mats. What a great product this is!
When I received this mat and laid it out to give it a try, I was impressed. It was nicely packaged, there were no harsh chemical smells out of the box, and no kinks or wrinkles. It flattened out nice and quickly and the product itself came as pictured as it was on their website. Continue reading “Comfort Design Mats ☁️”
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).
Managing a household is like managing a business, and if you’re anything like me, then you need to always feel a sense of organization and order with everything you do. Otherwise, it feels like you’re doing everything and nothing at the same time.
