It's also one of the things a child looks forward to receiving when they attend a friend's birthday party. Who can really resist a goodie bag? I know … Continue reading Party Favors under $50.
I think most girls dream of being a mom at some point in their life. I always pictured myself having at least three kids (just like my mom had). I wanted to start having kids at twenty-five years old and have my kids about two years apart in age. It seemed reasonable. A couple of months after turning twenty-five, I found out I was pregnant. The crazy part is that the day before I found out, we had discussed possibly waiting a bit longer to have kids. So you can imagine the mix of emotions that came flooding in. I didn't really even know what to think. I was happy and excited, but at the same time scared and nervous. Were we ready? Was this the right time? Would Albert be happy about it? It took a few days for it to really sink in. I. Was. Pregant.
Are you a mom and thinking about going back to school, but don’t know how to include it into the life you’ve created? Fret no more because I am a mom who is currently in school and I am here to tell you how I fit it into my life. I currently attend school part-time while being a full-time stay at home mom. I’ll be honest, this is about my sixth time going back to school in the last decade. I struggled a lot with what I wanted to do. I guess you can call me a “dreamer.” I juggled around the idea of becoming a doctor, getting a business degree, becoming certified in medical administration, billing and coding and now nursing. Wow, that was a mouth full.
I am going to be real honest in this post and I am going to talk about weight, which is usually hard for me to do. So, please, no judgment. I have struggled with weight for a while now. Every time I seemed to get a grasp at managing it, something happens and throws me in for a loop. I guess that’s just a part of life that I am still trying to figure out how to handle. I hit my first low and all-time weight gain after my dad passed away in 2013. The scale then read 201lbs. Keep in mind: I am only 4’11” in height. It took me a while, but I was able to get back down to the 160’s and by the end of 2016 after going into very premature labor, I was back to a whopping 200lbs. My problem? I am an emotional and super stress eater. I also tend to go without eating and end up binging later. Lets just say my eating habits are bad!
Every sixth month mark I start to look forward to the birthday planning process for Adam. Yes, you read that correctly. I start planning six months in advance. Why? Well 1. I like to plan ahead to minimize the stress that comes with planning and 2. Because I just can’t wait. Please tell me I am not the one. I mean you’re here reading this, so maybe I’m not alone in this. There is a lot that goes into the planning process and I an going to break it down for you. This is my six month six tasks to a birthday party to remember. Let’s go!
