Let’s start with the idea that this fear doesn’t come from the cliché “I know how I was when I was a teenage girl” saga; that unruly behavior written off as teenage, female adolescence that […]
So I haven’t talked about my pregnancy much since my first post and initial reaction since finding out that I am having twins. However, with the move across country, going back to work and getting my home under control I have had the opportunity to tend to all of the alerts on my phone and well, would you look at that, I’m 20 weeks pregnant! With twins! Haha
Just sharing some of the holiday mommy joy I am having today.
You know, the kind that I would love to make every single night but I get home from work too tired to function. Nonetheless, my attempts at them are not failed on the weekends with my trusty sous chef, Gabe. My husband doubles as the sous chef and taste tester, just to make sure it taste as good as it looks lol…
When I was younger, I remember staying up on Christmas Eve, touching up our Christmas list to Santa, baking cookies for the old man, watching Christmas movies via local channels on the big back TV and my mom prepping Christmas dinner; or what could be prepared the night before to relieve some of her stress on Christmas day…
I see this online so much but I have always been a bit unconventional with carrying things on the go, so Gabriel has had his own bag. It was not until a few months ago that he really expressed interest in holding it himself (I’m thinking he probably seen me struggling to hold it together one day lol) but he loves it! He even calls it the “Big Boy Bag”. So without further a do, here is whats in the “Big Boy Bag”.
After a long military move and a few weeks off, I finally went back to work this week. Bittersweet because I know how much I enjoy working and miss the constant momentum but I also wish I had more free time to be with my son and husband – not to mention enough time to cook, clean, do laundry, find time for self-care and everything else I didn’t seem to think about all that much when I actually had the time to do it. I have always felt so conflicted when it comes to this topic because I envy the stay at home mom but the common misconceptions that they face are quite the match for mothers like myself who punch the clock daily.
