Why I started this...

Hi everyone,
Why did I start ANOTHER blog... well first of all I must be bored with my current project and need to start something else that I will never finish... lol I joke but it's so true. I never finish anything. I have a closet full of craft projects that I have never finished but there is always a good reason... Scrapbooks (moved on to digital), hairbows (bought the wrong glue gun), hair bow holder (didn't have everything I needed) and it goes on and on... If I don't buy everything needed the first time there is a good chance that project will be finding a home in our guest bedroom closet! I would take a picture for you but right now we have a giant tv blocking the closet door. This is not only because we have nowhere to store it but so that guests (and my husband) don't see how many projects I have actually not finished!
But the real reason is that us moms really have to stick together. This is the most important job we will ever do... And because of that I think alot of us put A TON of unnecessary stress on ourselves... It's so important to hear from another mom, "I've been there too!" or "Don't worry you will make the right decision." These are the things that keep us going. I always thought I'd be the best mom EVER! I mean I have a degree in child development... I worked as an Early Interventionist telling people how to help their children... Oh if I could just go back and apologize to every parent I gave suggestions on how to get their child out of their bed, how to get them off the bottle, or how to NEVER use a pacifier :o) Being a parent is hard! So I hope by sharing my experiences as I travel through toddlerhood I can create a safe community where we all can realize just how much we rock as moms!
Back to the initial point... I never finish anything so please feel free to leave feedback and encouragement so that I am motivated to keep sharing!



  1. I am right there with you...on so many points. I'm also dreading daycare...TWO more weeks...that's all I have left at home with my babies. :o( Glad you started this blog...I'll be your most avid follower for sure!

  2. I'm with you!!! We need to stick together and give each other as much support as possible. I hate feeling like I'm in competition with other Moms or comparing myself to them constantly. I need the Mom friends who will have a conversation with me while holding a sreaming child and watching me fold laundry!!!

  3. Emily! SO true!! Have you guys seen the new cards for moms by moms at Hallmark??? I could buy every single one of them for all my mom friends! They are awesome!
    Rosemary- We can cry together! If you are having a tough time just call or text I probably will be too!!!
