That is only the beginning of the description.
I could write pages and pages of my responsibilities. Some days, the only thing that matters is that I have kept my 3.5 year old hurricane of a child safe. Other days, I call it a win that we make it to school within 15 minutes of bells ringing.
Mom life is not an easy life, whether you have one child or whether you have twelve. In fact, I often think about how seven kids is way easier than five was... but for me, two kids was harder than three and four kids... Every mom is different. Every child's personality is different. Every stage of our life is... you guessed it, different!!
The question I get every single day of my life...
How do you do it all?
Well, I'll give you my secret...
I HAVE NO IDEA!
Really! There is no secret! There is no magic formula. We have a routine that helps us stay on task, but sometimes we oversleep or there's an argument about the way somebody looked at somebody else across the breakfast table and it causes... "disruption" to the routine. Ha! That's the understatement of the year, you guys!
Sometimes, mommy gets sick. Really sick. Like, bursts two eardrums sick. (Yep, that's actually what happened last week) And it is then that everything falls apart.
BUT I have three tools that help immensely.
3. Essential Oils
They get me through the tough days. They make me feel a little less crazy.
And if mommy is less crazy... everyone is less crazy!
I am a mommy of SEVEN (yes 7) beautiful kids! They are amazing, wonderful, hilarious & the greatest babies I could ask for! I am married to my best friend & high school sweetheart, Michael.
I love to craft. I love to decorate. I am passionate about natural living & natural birthing. Sometimes I write stuff. I plan parties like my life depended on it. My favorite color is pink. My house is definitely NOT taupe. I typically cannot keep plants alive. I am only allowed to have dogs as pets because all others tend to have the same end result as the plants. Luckily my track record with kids is pretty good! Also, I drink a lot of coffee. And I really like tacos.
