Here’s to us – the mother’s who just recently became stay-at-home moms, and the mothers who have been since day one. Here’s to us – the moms who may have picked up day-drinking recently, and the brave sober moms! Here’s to the moms who might be banging their head against the wall, and to the moms who are doing it all by themselves. All you moms –
I just wanted to tell you “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY” and I think you’re doing great. We will get through this!
MOTHER’S DAY / Today is Mother’s Day, and it’s my second one. 🥰
I HAVE A 2-YEAR-OLD / Last week, my son turned two. 😭 And I feel like the tantrums and the word “no” have escalated a step or two. 🤦🏻♀️ I will say that it is a blessing to be home with him right as his personality is breaking through, because I would’ve missed all of this if I were still working. And going back to work (whenever that may be) will be bittersweet. We had a drive-by parade for him last weekend, and it was so nice – we stayed outside for hours afterward playing with his new chalk set, various toys with wheels, and the three bubble guns he got! 😅
VIDEO GAMES / Since the pandemic took over our lives and I’ve had to commit to being at home and a literal full-time parent, I’ve come up with my own methods of dealing, and it’s manifested in the form of video games. Animal Crossing, and now Kingdom Hearts (I beat the first one last week, and now I’m working on Re:Chain of Memories) have taken over my life. Sometimes I’ll play while Rowan hangs out with me in the living room and he’ll watch the tv very intently, but mostly I’ve been playing during his naps and once he’s in bed, and I’ll be up way past midnight. 🎮
TIKTOK / Guys I broke down and got TikTok and now I can’t stop, help me I’m scared of this hole I’ve dug myself in.
My e-letter series to my son, who just turned two at the end of April!
