The Start of Something New.
I am a newly minted stay at home mom. I only have one child, who we loving refer to as spirited (which is code for there may only be one). We recently moved to Northern California from Calgary, Alberta. We relocated for my husband’s training and we hope to return to Canada after a 2 year stint. The first year will be spent in the Bay Area while the second year in Los Angeles.
It has been a struggle!
Since having my son, I have a whole new appreciation for stay-at-home moms, whether its by choice or by circumstance. It’s a completely different challenge that changes daily, even hourly sometimes. Working in a corporate environment, you can convince yourself that you have some control: work hard, work more efficiently, watch less YouTube, etc. There is very little control – if any – as a SAHM! The biggest struggle is maintaining your composure and being the reasonable adult in EVERY situation. This includes suppressing the urge to kick, and scream, and start throwing things along with your kid(s). To those of you out there who are struggling too, working or SAHM, we’re in this together and I hope I can offer you something to enjoy.
I’ll be posting on almost everything and anything that I feel passionate about including, parenting books, crafts, food, as well as day-to-day living with my toddler. I am hoping to give even just one mom hope as well as push myself out of my comfort zone. This is me leaping out of that comfort zone and trying something new!
Here we go!
