I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
Mila has taught me so many lessons, I’m certain that all children do. They have a way of bringing out every single emotion in us, and there is no self development book that has helped me more than my children have.
Okay, ladies. I asked you all on Instagram several days ago what you wanted to read about on the blog this week, and many of you mentioned tips on achieving a better work/home balance. Some of your suggestions tied into this topic, with questions like ‘How to make more ‘ME’ time. All I do is give to everyone else’ and ‘How can I get rid of the working mom guilt?’ Clearly…the struggle (and juggle) is REAL.
I feel like I’m beginning to get to know you all a lot better, and you have also been getting to know me. I absolutely love this, because I blog and share my life with you guys with the sole purpose of creating a community that supports and inspires one another. I share parts of my life that I feel passionate about: being a mom, wellness, feeling good in your own skin, living your best and most authentic life (and of course, beauty, home decor, travel, and all that fun stuff).
Hey loves! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Last week was such a whirlwind for us as Brielle came down with a horrible cold and I had a crazy busy work week, so we were all excited to unwind and relax this weekend. I’ll admit, I have a difficult time doing nothing. I get antsy if I sit around too long, and I find I like to keep busy on the weekends with fun family outings, dinner parties or errand running.
