Hello world! I haven’t posted in a while and let me explain why. My husband and I are expecting our second child in December. YAY! However, this pregnancy has been more than brutal on my body, mind, and energy level. I’m sure there are many of you ladies out there that can relate. 🙂 It has been a long road for us to get pregnant. We have suffered two miscarriages in the process. My heart goes out to anyone who has been through the loss of a child. It is painful and all consuming, but with the support of my husband and family I find myself coping. It wasn’t short after I found out I was pregnant again in March that extreme, debilitating morning sickness reared its ugly head. IV fluids were necessary on multiple occasions. Ughh. I decided to take a break from my regular everyday life and just focus on a healthy stress free pregnancy. I am now 31 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy! I have continued to do projects with BABS, but slowed down a bit and I just didn’t have the energy to post. However, I am finally feeling ready to tackle the blogging world again!
Taking this time off made me realize that while I originally started this blog to share my ideas for engaging kids activities, I have SO MUCH MORE to share. I mean let’s be real…being a stay at home mom we don’t just sit around all day playing with shaving cream and doing cute art projects. Working moms…I have been there too! Talk about busy! Stay at home mom or working mom, it doesn’t matter, we all need a little survival tips sometimes. I have decided to branch out. I will still be posting all the activities I do with my kiddos. But this time off has inspired me to do more. It has inspired me to be real. I want to share the simple things I do everyday that help make life easier. Recipes, reinventing leftovers, cleaning hacks, great deals on toys for Christmas (usually purchased online from the comfort of my couch and PJ’s), fun and educational kid activities! The list could go on and on.
So here is to a new beginning! Don’t forget you can enter your email to receive these post directly to your email.
