Sometimes my husband and I look at each other and wonder what we ever did before we had kids! The only thing I can remember is binge watching Netflix….a lot. I love having kids, they are totally fun, exhausting and they make me crazy angry and super happy. Being a mom is weird. I have never felt so many emotions!
One thing I love about motherhood is hearing stories from other moms. I’ve learned that there isn’t one right way to do motherhood. I think we have a lot to learn from one another and that is why I love being a part of what we are doing here on AllMomDoes. We’re sharing life together.
I have two busy kids, work full-time and attempt to balance both well. I don’t always succeed but I try to remember to celebrate when I do. Just recently I forgot to feed my kids dinner and then got mad at them when they were hungry at bedtime. They got a full lecture on the benefits of sitting still and eating at dinnertime before I realized. Not every day can be perfect. I’ve learned that’s okay and I’m glad I’m surrounded by a community here that can remind me it’s okay when I forget.
I never drank coffee until I moved to an area of the country where there are coffee stands on every corner and the value of your house increases if you are in walking distance of a Starbucks. I love to start my day with a Vanilla latte and end each day with a piece of chocolate.
I never knew how much God cared about the details until we were in a situation where we had to short sale our house, rent for 6 years and watch as God led us on an unexpected journey. What I learned? He will absolutely take care of you, if you let him.
Life is good and rich and hard. I believe if we practice being grateful it gets even better. I’m excited we’re on this journey together. I look forward to walking with you.
