I should have started this blog when I was pregnant. Realistically I was too swollen and agitated to type. Then I should have started during maternity leave but I wanted to attempt potty-training with my older daughter. Way more on this later.
So I go back to work tomorrow and so I guess no time like the present.
I’m going to write a lot about my kids. I like trying out any advice I get on parenting. Once you get to know me, you’ll realize I had zero idea of what I was doing. Still don’t. But I have two wonderful daughters who make me laugh.
I’m going to write about recipes. I mean really – who is making a pot roast and a 3-side dish on a Tuesday after picking up kids from daycare? No one. I’ll include what I do.
I’m going to write about weight loss. My oldest was 17 months old when my most recent accomplishment came into this world. Two pregnancies means lots of l-bs to lose.
I’m going to write about money. When the first kid multiples so do the costs. I’ll include some of my tips on making the budget stretch and then stretch some more.
I’m going to write about working. I want to work. I am a better mom for working. I think there’s a hole in the conversation about working moms. What about the women who choose to have a career AND a family? There are some of us out there who carry a briefcase and a Medela breast pump bag.
I’m going to write. We’ll see what happens.
