I never thought I would be a stay at home mom. After getting an associates degree in graphic design I was really hoping to get into the workforce. Then one day I heard some advice from someone I love just how beneficial being a stay at home mom could be. That moment really changed my entire way of thinking about being a working mom. So much so that somehow, 6 years after having my first baby I decided to also be a homeschooling mom! What?!? A day has never passed that I haven’t wanted the best for my kids. Unfortunately, one thing I’ve let slip away was myself. I forgot that taking care of myself helps me be better at taking care of them. I needed something more than being a stay at home mom had to offer. So let’s talk about how starting a blog is actually the thing that made me a better mom.
