Story of a Stay at Home Mom
If a mom pours a cup of coffee,
Then the toddler will ask for eggs.
You make her eggs and cheese, but then she decides she would rather have oatmeal and pineapple.
You decide to not fight about it because eggs sound good to you… With your coffee – that is cold now. So you put it in the microwave.
Just as you sit down with your eggs and coffee, the baby wakes up and needs to be changed and fed.
You run upstairs, change baby, come back downstairs and sit to nurse. Feeling hungry and thirsty now because nursing does that…
Sigh. Your coffee is cold. Put it back in microwave along with eggs.
Sit down with hot coffee and eggs. Eat one bite.
Toddler wants her snack… You fix an almond butter sandwich… Licking your fingers for a taste of food.
Toddler wants to play a game. ‘Let’s play tea party.’ Where she will pour you a cup of imaginary… Coffee.
I feel like motherhood was the most amazing thing that ever happened to me… but I had to discover how to not lose myself in the process.
I teach busy moms how to make simple healthy swaps that make a huge impact on their health and results.
