Hey there, busy mama! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site.
I’m Jenny, a fellow busy mom with an energetic little toddler… so I understand the struggle! 😉
Like most moms, I battled (and still do sometimes!) with the feeling that there are just not enough hours in the day to do all of the things that NEED to be done.
Unlike a lot of moms, I’m actually honest about it.
Being a new mom is tough. Like climbing Mount Everest in your underwear while juggling bubbles kind of tough.
But it can also be hilarious!
I started this blog because I wanted to give other moms a place to go for some honest, real advice about time management, cleaning, organization, and all those other fun mom-related topics we spend our nights researching on Google and Pinterest.
More importantly, I wanted to give moms a place to laugh, be honest, and feel better knowing that there are other moms out there going through the same things as you.
You’re not the only one wondering why your child stopped sleeping through the night at two and a half years old or why the same techniques you used on your first kid aren’t working on your second.
Every kid is just different…like a little snot-infested snowflake.
A little bit about my history…
Prior to having my daughter, I worked full-time as a Registered Nurse in a local community hospital. At the time, I thought it was one of the most challenging, fulfilling things I had ever done with my life.
Then my daughter was born.
Everything shifted and I just couldn’t bring myself to go back to my full-time position.
Luckily, I had the opportunity to take a part-time night position on the weekends so that I could be home with my little one during the week.
It was all coming together…or so I thought.
Initially, just caring for my daughter (who never slept and cried ALL THE TIME) was incredibly overwhelming.
I found myself constantly second-guessing every decision and quickly becoming addicted to Google search.
I was really just trying to get it together!
The challenge that I was trying to overcome was not getting one area of my life together. Instead, it was getting all of them working simultaneously to produce some kind of beautiful, homeostatic eutopia.
Hey, a new mom can dream, right?
It didn’t take long before I burned out and realized that I needed to stop making “perfection” the goal because, in mom-world, perfection doesn’t exist.
Once I discarded the ridiculous notion of perfection, I wondered what’s left?
Gratitude, progress, and happiness.
And that, my friends, is what this blog is all about. Seeing the silver lining around that circle of urine on your child’s bedsheets, and then reading a blog post about how to get said urine out of your child’s bedsheets. 😉
Interesting facts about me….
- I am the second oldest of five children
- I’m a big nerd when it comes to history (You would think the owner of my Netflix account is 80 years old)
- I can flip bottles like Tom Cruise in Cocktail…but I don’t jump on couches. 😉
Now, let’s get back to you…
Do you have a particular problem that you need help with?
My goal is to make your life easier so you can spend less time getting it together and more time enjoying being a mom.
