GREAT THINGS ABOUT HAVING A 1970'S WEEK

GREAT THINGS ABOUT HAVING A 1970'S WEEK

When our dayhome was closed for a month with less than a month's notice, we were left scrambling for care for our daughter. If needed, we were prepared to each take two weeks off work to watch her but that would really suck because that means no family vacation! Luckily for us, my mother-in-law stepped up and volunteered to watch our daughter for two weeks.

CELEBRATING ALL (TYPES) OF MOMS

CELEBRATING ALL (TYPES) OF MOMS

Labels are not cool. Even if the label is meant to be a good one, it still gives a sense of judgment (good or bad). This post is to celebrate all types of moms, regardless the label you are given. I truly believe we are all doing our best and giving the best to our children. Here are some reasons why you ALL rock as moms:

CLEARING CLUTTER TO CLEAR ANXIETY

CLEARING CLUTTER TO CLEAR ANXIETY

My dream house is a clean, white one, that looks like nobody lives there. (Some call it a minimalist house.) Regardless of the term, I love a neat, tidy, and uncluttered home. It brings me peace even if it drives me a little nutso to get there. To be honest, I know it is hard to keep a home like this especially when you live with two people that don't see this need (one of which is a preschooler.)

2018 RESOLUTIONS CHECK UP

2018 RESOLUTIONS CHECK UP

I was a little nervous to check up on the progress of my 2018 resolutions. Mostly, because I even forgot one of them and I only had three resolutions to start! Good grief! (Can you still have a mom brain after your child is born and is now 3.5 years old?!)

Here is a recap on how I did on my resolutions in the first four months of the year:

2018 NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

2018 NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

With last year's resolutions, I think I scored a solid 80% on them. That said, I think they were a little bit too ambitious. Maybe perfect for the person I was in 2017, but this upcoming year, I want and need to become a different person and do things differently. These resolutions might not sound like much, but they require a huge mind shift for me. Here they are:

DOING IT ALL AS A WORKING MOM

DOING IT ALL AS A WORKING MOM

What exactly does it mean to do it all? Does doing it all mean you are the perfect partner/wife/mom/person? Oh please! As moms, we all have a million of things to do in a short amount of time, that should have been done yesterday or last week, but is only being partially done now because we just found the time and the kids are in bed.

DOES HAVING A BABY AFFECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP?

DOES HAVING A BABY AFFECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP?

I have been asked this question a couple of times now by new moms. My honest answer is: Absolutely. Having a child is essentially adding another person into an existing relationship. A threesome may sound fun but not when the third wheel is an infant needing around the clock care and don’t have any words in her vocabulary yet. You can’t split things 50/50, you now have to split things three ways. These things includes finances, space, time, and of course love.

WISHAHMON -YEAR END RECAP (2016)

WISHAHMON -YEAR END RECAP (2016)

Looking back at the year I've had is something I do every year end. Surprisingly, I only remember the happy things and not the things that I ugly cried about. Must keep this in mind for the following year - whatever "major earth shattering" issue I am having at that moment will likely be forgotten months later. Here are some great things I remember from this year:

BREASTFEEDING IS REALLY HARD

One day out of the blue, as I was working, my glass water bottle broke. I was shocked but even more shocked when I started to cry hard, correction, ball my eyes out over…a…water…bottle. Once I pulled myself together and off the floor, I asked myself what the heck is going on with you? It can’t be hormones because you can’t continue to blame hormones 17 months after the birth of your daughter. It can’t be because I am sleep deprived because I haven’t sleep in 17 months. Then, it finally dawned on me. This water bottle was significant to me at a significant time.

WHAT'S NEW AT WISHAHMON - NOVEMBER 2016

WHAT'S NEW AT WISHAHMON - NOVEMBER 2016

There hasn't been a lot of updates or showcasing of weddings or events that I have been planning mostly due to my tardiness. I assure you that I have kept myself busy and wasn't just catching up on shows on Netflix. (I'm caught up anyways.) Here's what new (or what I did last month.)
