Don’t judge me. I let my kids watch YouTube. I know, I know. I’m a terrible parent, but hear me out. Do you remember my daily routine as a full-time working mom? It was bananas (b-a-n-a-n-a-s). Well, now that I’ve left the corporate world for awhile, life is still bananas but in a different way. I pretty much have to re-create new routines for almost everything, including a new morning routine. I feel like I’m re-learning and trying to figure out life. Thankfully, I have PlaytexBaby products handy #ForBetterBeginnings to our days. I’m also grateful for YouTube to entrance entertain my children while I do super fancy things like wash my face and brush my teeth. Today I’m sharing what my new routine as an at-home mom looks like lately.

Have I ever mentioned that I’m a shopaholic? Well, if not, you should know that I totally am. Because of that, I’m kind of a PinkBlush junkie. They seriously have so many things to choose from that an addict like me can spend at least an hour surfing through, trying to narrow down my favorites. Now that spring is here, I knew it was time to add some spring pieces from Pink Blush to my wardrobe. I decided to go with a kimono since I am loving that trend, a flowy crochet top because I love all things flowy and all things crochet, and a casual stripe raglan with floral sleeves because I’m also loving stripes and florals! I think you’re gonna love these as much as I do.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love being a mom of two girls? Growing up, I used to say that I always wanted to have one boy and one girl – one of each to make up the perfect family. I wanted the boy to be older so he could have his little sister’s back. When I was pregnant with A, though, I wanted a girl so badly. In fact, at her gender reveal ultrasound, I thought that the tech thought she was a boy and I was super sad about it; gender disappointment is a real thing. When it was time for #2 to come along, I knew I wanted another girl – a sister for my A, despite my previous wants for one of each. As it turns out, my husband wanted another girl, too. The two of us are now smitten girl parents and neither of us can imagine having boys. There are so many reasons I love being a girl mom so today I’m sharing five.

Mama said there’d be days like this. Yesterday was one of those days I read about in blogs all the time. You know the ones: stay-at-home-mom is flustered and exhausted; she just needs a break. See, my kids weren’t themselves. One was home from school for 2 days because she was sick and the other had what I’m assuming was cabin fever from being stuck in the house with her sick sister. Misery, whining, fighting, and crying all came together to create the theme of the day: frustration. This mama couldn’t deal. I found myself feeling alone. Tired. Aggravated. I raised my voice. I shut down. I put on Netflix and let it play for hours because I didn’t have it in me to do anything else. I counted the minutes until nap time. I wasn’t my best self. Far from it.
