A few months ago I was invited to take part in an instagram loop giveaway which was the first time I head of Lovely Tot Designs she was also part of the loop. I love that this shop not only sells super adorable baby items, but I love even more that Lovely Tot Designs gives back to their community! How awesome is that?!?!?! I knew then that I simply had to find a way to work with her.
A few months ago in getting ready to launch this blog I went through old journal entries and little quotes and writings I had saved in an old notebook. I came across notes for an old personal blog I started back when blogging was about sharing your family life.
Thank you for following my weekly planning series. Now that we've chosen a planner or calendar system it's time to fill it in! Here's how I fill in mine.
A while back I wrote about my feelings towards my own miscarriage. What I did to get through that most difficult time in my life (if you want to read that post you can find it here). Now it’s time to flip the script. I have racked my brain trying to figure out what I would have wanted someone who came to visit me to say, or to do for me that would have eased some of the pain and suffering that I was feeling at the time.
My mom guilt! It’s one of the strongest emotions any mother has. How badly am I going to screw up this little human’s life? We’ve all been there at one point or another during motherhood. We worry about how much time we are spending with them. How is the way we talk to them going to shape their self-esteem? We worry about what we are feeding them, what we are clothing them in and who we are leaving them with when we are not around. Am I truly doing the best job I can at raising them? We worry if the life choices we’ve made were wrong and if different choices would lead them to be more well-balanced individuals. Would a different path have resulted in better-adjusted children?
I love makeup!!! My addiction to makeup is almost as big as my addiction to planners and calendars, each feeding a totally different aspect of my life. But I need them both in my life nonetheless! As a mom of three, trying to keep up with them and run a business, has made makeup kinda fall off the list of priorities, but I do think it’s really important! These are the five products I can’t live without! Makeup makes me feel human, like a woman rather than “just a mom”. Not that there is anything wrong with being “just a mom”, but why? When you can be “A mom that feels good about the way she looks!!!”
