Good evening mamas!
If there is anything I hate more, it is that I started 2017 with a messy, messy house. And messy is the nicest word I could come up with because wreck, hurricane, disaster probably describes it better. In our home we do not have a “living area” per say. We have a kitchen that opens up to what would be our living/family room so we opted for doing a bar counter with bar stools and called it a day. The downside is- my counter ends up being the dumping grounds for literally EVERYTHING. When the kids fight over a toy and I come in the save or in their heads, ruin the day I take it away and it goes right on the counter along with my purse, keys, tupperware, bills and all sorts of random knick knacks.
Let me go ahead and apologize right now for the most cliche post of the year. I know there must be a ton of lists flooding the web with the usual goal setting aspirations. Truth is, I was never one to sit down and contemplate what ‘goals’ I wanted on New Years day. Sure, I set goals year round and most probably don’t get accomplished. But, this year has been so much more awakening for me as a mom, friend, wife and just a person in general. No doubt, being a mother is not always rainbows and unicorns… most times it’s tantrums, colds, staying in your sweat pants 3 days in a row (guilty, don’t judge me).
With that said, this year holds true ” New Year, New Me”. As a mom, I have let life get the best of me and instead of focusing on the now I feel like last year I kept wanting things to happen in the future but, I was not proactive on getting those steps done. If the kids got sick, I just went full force mom mode and neglected everything else that made me happy- including this blog. In reality, this blog is a major part of my sanity. This is a space where I can share my thoughts, my obstacles and meet new moms and know, it’s not just me going crazy.
