While on family vacation in Miami, I woke up and felt this urge to instantly find MY niche. Its been something that had been weighing on my mind heavily for the last few weeks even months prior, but I had kept pushing it off and just trying to focus on the important everyday life happenings. But somehow waking up in that Miami hotel room I couldn’t keep my mind off it. My friends had all found their niches… their escape from motherhood if only for an hour here and there…lash extensions, selling essential oils, microblading, jewelry making, the list goes on for home based businesses they started. And I was honestly jealous! My mind drifted off to how things were going to return to normal once we were back home. My kids would be going back to school and I would be back to the usual grind of cooking, cleaning and the school run. Don’t get me wrong, I am privelaged to be able to stay at home with my littles since they’ve been born but I crave that adult conversation each day at the water cooler. At home you get little to no adult contact or excitement during a typical day unless you count watching the Food Network or HGTV as adult contact, things can get really mundane, day after day after day, especially when you get little to no commendation for the most grimiest of tasks! I’m not asking for an award.. were all moms here, but a surprise Starbucks or vase of flowers when your husband walks through the door at night every now and then would be really nice sometimes ya know? That’s when it hit me…. I wanted to start my own blog. I wanted adult conversations on a daily basis, not just on playdates or when me and my husband exchanged pleasantries while passing each other by in between the thick of raising a family. So if your willing to come on this adventure with me, I thank you. I’m truly looking forward to this new journey and I would love nothing more than to have you guys come along with me! Lets make 2018 the best year yet!
Why do I find the fact that I have to pack my children lunches on weekdays at 7am so bloody daunting! I literally DREAD it!!! When they’re home on the weekend its a breeze, I dont even give it a second thought. But the minute you have to make a lunch portable, spill proof, peanut free, healthy (so the teacher doesnt judge you), and most of all Kid friendly, it turns into this giant pain in my you know where! This year I bought these Munchebox cute containers which are not only functional, but also eco friendly, dishwasher safe AND spill-proof and they kinda sorta make my job a little bit more fun in the morning! They come in a few color choices as well. Its fun challenging myself on how to pack a variety of foods each day into the compartments to make things interesting. Its funny how the simple things can make us moms happy hey?
