Oh to be validated…

Validation… there’s nothing like it. Sometimes all we need to hear is that what we are doing is right. That what we are needing is okay…that how we feel is real.

We can’t choose when they come, they come when we need them

It was the day of my grandfathers funeral, my period was late and a piece of me knew I had to take a pregnancy test. I was terrified. We already had 2 kids and to be honest, they weren’t easy. Everything in my world was struggling and the last thing we needed was a new baby. But, the test was positive.

Hey mama, you’re doing great.

When you’re a stay at home mom (SAHM) and also a homeschooling mom, you are basically with your children 24/7. Literally from the moment they wake up until the moment they go to sleep the next day, they’re with you (since they’re also keeping you up all night).

I have heard more times than I can count “I don’t know how you do it” and to be honest, this was my choice and if I had to choose a million times I’d choose this life with my kids.
