#This is Real Life

I thought it was time that I opened up a little and shared something a little more personal than a recipe or diy craft. With the sunshine far above the clouds and the cold weather making it so much more tempting to curl up inside, I’m left feeling a little blah lately. Not necessarily down and not necessarily up. The normal ebbs and flows of life and motherhood I guess but none the less, I just haven’t felt my usual energetic self lately. I still work out 4 times a week and do an amazing restorative yoga practice but my energy levels feel zapped. I am getting better and better at calming my mind but I still feel blah. I think it’s a combination of holiday anticipation, cold weather, lack of sunshine, nursing hormones, being back at work, chasing after a busy lil boy and just feeling run down. But I accept it for what it is knowing that this too shall pass. Heck it better pass… it’s my birthday in 9 days!

This post isn’t meant to get pity, or sympathy…. because really I’m happy and doing fine… I just feel like there are so many artificial representations of people’s lives through social media that it’s nice to feel normal sometimes. Continue reading

I’m not going to be one of those women that lies through her unbrushed teeth to claim that being a new mom is all rainbows, sprinkles and giggles. Because in all honesty, it’s more comparable to poops, pukes and sleepless nights. But even after a looooonnnngg day when everything seems to be going wrong, all it takes is one quirky smile from my lil man and it’s all worth it.

So for all of my new moms out there that NEED a laugh or for those of you that can relate from raising your own children, I wanted to share this hilarious article that I came across on the internet. You may have seen it on other blogs but the original author is Colin Falconer from the book “The Beginner’s Guide to Fatherhhood” and he deserves every bit of credit! So far I can only relate to the first few tests but I’m sure I will experience all of them in good time. Enjoy! Continue reading
