Balance

Motherhood is not about perfection. I haven't quite figured it out yet, but I am learning how to juggle life as a mom, wife, writer and friend. I am beginning to accept the fact that being a great mom is as simple as spending a rainy afternoon baking chocolate chip muffins with my toddler.


I am learning to ignore all the pressures to be perfect and it feels good. Life is about balance.


I am a stay-at-home mom.

I am a freelance writer.

I always buy organic milk.

I never buy organic eggs.

I recycle because I care about the environment.

Rosemary wears disposable diapers.
 

I am training for a 5K race.

I just ate a chocolate chip muffin.

I belong to a book club.

It's called "Read Between the Wines".


There are days when I find educational activities to stimulate my two-year-old.

There are days when I let Henry watch two or three episodes of Paw Patrol...in a row.


I am passionate about the outdoors and introducing children to nature.

I am afraid of spiders.

I love to plan parties.

I hate hosting.
 
We believe in babywearing.

We own a double stroller.

I know I will always strive to be the best version of myself, but I'm also learning to love my imperfections.


Perfectly happy.

  1. Very good! And they aren't imperfections, so take that word out of your vocabulary! "I haven't quite figured it out yet" --also take away "yet" because I don't know if we ever will! Thats what our future kids therapists can decide!
