Skin Issues – Melasma

So there's this thing I've been dealing with since having children. It's a skin condition called melasma. It is also known as hyperpigmentation but Melasma is normally due to the hormones released during pregnancy or in some cases, women on birth control. Anyone who has dealt with this skin issue knows it is stubborn, and…

The aha moment

All this time. For nearly 5 years I've been struggling with being a stay-at-home mom. I have had battles with anxiety and depression and just self-loathing about the fact that I don't have a career. That I can't both be a working mom and a stay-at-home mom. I wanted to be able to do both.…

“You’re so lucky to be a SAHM”

So let me start by saying I realize that it truly is a gift/blessing/lucky thing to be able to stay home and watch my children when it is not always an option for many but this is just a perspective from a SAHM when they hear this phrase so take it with a light heart…

Some days I slay, some days I pray

Exactly how I feel at this moment in time. There are days in stay-at-home motherhood where I am a rockstar. On these days, I wake up and make a nice healthy breakfast, we go to park or library, and do fun things and all is well and happy. Or I get a lot accomplished and…

I’m not perfect, I’m real

Like one of my favorite Salvador Dali quotes states, "Have no fear of perfection, you will never reach it". In today's world of being a mom/parent there is this immense pressure to reach this unattainable "perfection". It's almost as if everyone seems to be trying to achieve or portray that they're achieving. For instance, say…

Decisions, Decisions

As soon as you become a mom, you quickly learn that what was once super easy choices are now toss-ups between super important things. Eat or take a shower, take a shower or clean the house. Take a nap or clean. Go to the park since you know your kids REALLY need to get out…

No sick days for Moms

It came out of nowhere.  I was fine on Monday, and then Tuesday morning my throat hurt, and I was sneezy and sniffly.  I felt crappy but as the day went on, it only got worse.  The next morning, I woke and still wasn’t feeling well but no sick days for moms.  I have no…

Dropped the ball

Unfinished Projects

My life is the personification of unfinished projects right now. This blog for instance, is just a work-in-progress.  I am not consistent with it, nor do I have anything planned out - It's all on a whim. Much like my thoughts throughout the day, my dishes, laundry, and household in general is just a culmination…

Privacy? What is Privacy?

    First of all, I want to start by saying that I am using this online platform as my "diary".  I remember the days of my youth when I had a lock with a key for my precious thoughts.  Nowadays, we plaster our innermost thoughts all over the net for the world (or at…
