I’m a wife and mother of 7 kids in a blended family and I believe in bending the rules to live life to it’s fullest, even if we have to learn some hard lessons along the way. I’m all about making room for us women to reclaim ourselves outside of momhood. We exist in a world where being a mom is only one thing. It only looks one certain way. And this sole description tells the rest of the world what a good mom looks like and what a bad mom looks like. This So Called Mom is not good or bad. She is complex, has “me time” and knows how to pick damn good looking underwear.
When we become wives and mothers we loose a big chunk of who we are and it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes it feels as though we’ve woken up in the middle of this baby-gym life and the kid’s are much older and everything feels out of control. When we return to being women first, who are also moms and wives, we are happier; more complete–and maybe this is ultimately what helps us embrace the chaos even more. My blog is all about this and more.
Please join me on a daily adventure where I share everything from personal stories about topics such as my Luxury Hotel Birth to parenting advice about getting a handful of teenagers up and off the couch–for good! All of this comes from the most dynamic family subjects I know–my own!
This is us, living real life out loud. <3
Let me know if you have anything to say, I’d love to connect with you!
