Why I’m Starting This Blog

January 17, 2011

Why am I starting a blog?  I hardly have time to check email, eat a warm meal, do my makeup and, on some days, even shower.  As a stay-at-home-mom, I’m able to experience every smile, cuddle, tantrum, laugh and poopy diaper from my little one.  I love it and would not trade it for anything.  And though I give all I have to my son, I’ve realized that I’m a better mom when I’ve had my little escape from this 24/7 job.  Whether it be a 30 minute bubble bath, a quick trip to the gym or a chapter read from a book that does not include the words “baby,” “sleep,” or “teething” in the title… it’s a slice of peace, solitude and freedom.  And I come back to my son recharged.
Busy schedules, long to-do lists, sleep deprivation and even “mom guilt” often hinders us from taking these moments to ourselves.  But I’m here to put my mom calm moments up further on my list and, while doing so, maybe help other moms do the same.
