Mental Load: My Coronavirus Thoughts

As a germaphobe, I thought I would be prepared for a pandemic. Going into the chaos of the Winter blues earlier this year to a full-blown pandemic has really been eye opening. I live with something called mysophobia. It’s essentially a fear of germs, like an extreme fear, while others may think my mental illness is silly or annoying, it’s something I battle with everyday and it is real.

Parenting Styles

Like a snowflake, everyone has different parenting styles. Instead of judging and criticizing, we need to embrace this difference and we would be much better for it.

Take peoples comments like a grain of salt, because after all, you are the mom/dad, not them. This is something I struggle with and I know I am not alone. It’s hard to get criticized, Continue reading Parenting Styles

Happy New Year (2018)

Happy New Years lovelies! To sum up 2017 in a few short words is easy. But explaining how insanely difficult yet beautiful it has been, is much more hard. So I will say this… Being pregnant and becoming a mom, I am forever changed and better for it. And I am so, so dang grateful for all my accomplishments last year.
