Real Mom Confessions: May 20th, 2015

Real Mom Confessions

One of the few bloggers I keep up with anymore, Girl With Blog, started this thing awhile ago where she blogs about the truths of parenting that we all go through one time or another but don’t often share. I also read somewhere recently about there not being enough blogs who talk about parenting school-aged kids. So while I spend almost all of my time on this blog talking about pregnancy, birth, and babies, here’s what’s going on in my life:

1. My two kids are done with school in 2 weeks and I’ve been in complete denial about making firm plans on what to do with them this summer. I can’t bring them in every day to the office any more, and there isn’t a budget for anything more than the patchwork solution we’ve been trying to come up with. I hate summers.

2. I had two babies spit up on me at Mama Cafe yesterday, and you know what? I didn’t mind. I didn’t even change my shirt until bedtime. Old habits and such.

3. It took me almost 3 weeks after buying plants for my garden to get them in the ground. The seed packets that were with the seeds had been out in the sun and the rain that whole time….and weren’t exactly seeds by the time I planted them, too.

4. Right now I just want my kids to come inside so I can lie down on the couch and take a 15  20 minute nap.

That’s what I have this week! I’m hoping to keep it real and share with you my reality next week!

Opening BabyLove in September of 2011 has allowed me to build a space where all families can come to get good information in a caring, welcoming environment. I have found that not only do I love teaching more than ever, but I also really love running a business. Hopefully my passion for every aspect of BabyLove shines through.
I live in Richfield with my husband, and I am a mother of a two great children. When I can steal a few free moments, I love to go on adventures with my family, cook, garden, thrift, can, and craft.
