I didn't think there would be a part three to this post, but here we are. A couple of days before the final divorce hearing, my ex came back to me asking for another chance. If I'm being honest, it would have probably been our firth or sixth "try again" at this point? His answer … Continue reading Boundaries Pt. III
When I was about to have my first, the thought of being a stay at home mom was awful. But the thought of being a full-time working mom was awful too. I knew both "full-time" roles weren't for me - I wanted to do both part-time. With my first, I went back to work at … Continue reading Life As A Stay At Home Mom.
Yesterday I had a phone court hearing to finalize my divorce. I honestly am not sure how I feel, probably because it was on the phone and not in person. A couple of weeks before the hearing I decided to stop also dating. I had been dating for about five months with awful luck. I … Continue reading Boundaries Pt. II
I was feeling used. Like I mention in my last post, my ex and I got very comfortable. Last week, he asked if he could come over to see the kids and talk. I asked, "what did you want to talk about?" He said, "not that you care but..." He had been stressed out with … Continue reading Used.
In this post, I'm sharing what a fully remote "day in the life" looks like with kindergartner and three year old twins. It's probably as it sounds; chaotic. Some days are easier than others, but for the most part, we have found our groove over the past few weeks. 6:45am: I still try to wake … Continue reading Fully Remote “Day In The Life.”
I couldn't resist trying out another tiny house. I decided to go with Getaway Boston this time since my Instagram feed was [almost] always showing it as a ad.I clearly took it as a sign that my phone was not only a. listening to what I wanted to do but also b. knew I should … Continue reading Getaway House Boston [Tiny House] Stay.
I'm not going to lie, I've been dragging the past week. Ever since Thanksgiving, my mindset has plummeted. I had this same feeling last year when I had my first "separated" Thanksgiving and Christmas from my children's father.While it makes me happy to see others happy, it the pit of my stomach I feel angry. … Continue reading Celebrating Holidays Separately.
One night a few weeks ago when I was putting my oldest to bed and I started rubbing her back. It just hit me that her back was "massive." She no longer was the little 22 month old when she first asked me to rub her back. At that time, my hand could cover most … Continue reading Mom Guilt.
I put "day off" in quotations because let's be real, a mom's brain never just shuts off. On these days, you'll find me spending a good chunk of the time cleaning the kids room, doing laundry and just trying to do things that just take too long with the kiddos around. Each "day off" varies, … Continue reading Day In The Life: Mom “Day Off.”
I'll be honest, I used to get very angry when people would tell me since I was separated from my ex, I show now just focus on "myself." I had no idea what that meant really. I was too busy being angry; angry at my ex, angry at the world and angry with myself. But … Continue reading [Re]Focusing On Me.
