5 years from now?

EveryDayMom

There never really is a time frame in which your life is supposed to be mapped out. You’re supposed to take life as it comes.

But everyone asks themselves that very question..

“Where will my life be in 5 years?”

I’ve even asked myself that question, ALOT throughout my life as an adult.

I mean, when we’re children we are asked that question, but instead of it being 5 years, it’s your life..

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

To which you state you want to be an astronaut..or a cowboy…

Actually for me I’ve always wanted to be a mom.

..and a professional singer..

but mostly a mom.

I do sometimes ask myself where I want my life to go.

Yes, you should focus on the journey, not the destination..

But I am guilty of picturing a future, and aspiring to it.. rather than letting…

Life Story

EveryDayMom

Up until the end of 2018 I was a “full time” employee.

I was able to get up, get the kids up and fed and dressed and out the door, somehow managing to have a bra on..

I worked until 5 and picked up the kids from daycare, made them dinner. Bath, Book and Bed.

Like Clockwork.

I missed the summertime, the fair, the trips. I was always working.

I’ve been put in a situation where it’s okay to now only work part time, which has been great.

Gives me a chance to actually hang out with my kids..

Daycare costs are WAY down. (Which face it moms, that’s NEVER a bad thing)

We do crafts, we watch “George” I can make them meals and I get to interact in their lives.

Now I’m not saying working full time is bad. I’ve done it since I was 16.

Ten Years!

Who says late-night babbling isn’t therapeutic?

This weekend was exhausting. Thought I would take a second and clean up my mental health a little bit. Because believe it or not this is so therapeutic. If you are ever just needing to talk, you should try typing out what you're feeling. No matter if anyone can read it or not. It really [...]

Mom Hacks

EveryDayMom

Everybody has them.

Ways to make life easier.

Parenting in my opinion is all about trial and error.

For me, my first taught me alot, got away with the most and now teaches his little brother what he has learned. So this list is personal that helps me get through the day.

  1. Silence is Golden

    • unless you have children. In my experience with my oldest in the middle of potty training, silence means he’s hiding behind the couch or in his room “doing his business” when he knows to use the potty. So Attention First Time Moms: Say your kids name at least 3 times every 5 minutes, it makes them think you’re watching. O.O

2. How to be a Laundry Ninja

Nothing Special Tonight

Just waiting for laundry to finish so I can go to bed. It's only reason I'm up. This seems to be the only time I have a chance to do things without interruptions. Except for my brain as it wanders..... I also I am kind of anxious because I start my new job tomorrow. A [...]

Mindset. It’s all about Mindset

EveryDayMom

I tell myself every day.

“Get your butt up and tend to your children.”

Sometimes Mama just wants to shut down and just disconnect from life for a minute.

But I’m up, toasting waffles and tickling my baby because he laughs like a 50 year old man first thing in the morning.

You have to wake up wanting the life you have, or else you’re just waking up.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, you should always want to wake up, but you also need to wake up loving your life. Loving everything about it. It is what keeps you moving.

Today was a little rougher than normal.

The end of a 3 day weekend and my son comes home from his fathers, not wanting to be here. Granted I should know that 3 days away from someone, you grow into the other lifestyle of being with the other parent…
