This space was created with the intention of becoming a place young mothers and homemakers can come to find encouragement for daily life, and ideas for making the most out of our years with little ones.
I believe that motherhood is a profession, one which we should give our all to, just as we would do if we were professional lawyers, doctors, or teachers.
And the truth is, we are all those things, and more. Motherhood is basically a way of saying we are semi-professionals at everything: we are teachers, nurses, judges, referees, coaches, maids, artists, cooks, interior designers, photographers, policewomen, and waitresses. Sure, throughout this crazy life, we need to rely on the “real” professionals occasionally. But, ultimately, we are the ones our children turn to when they need help, advice, or just a hug.
Our children are our life, and I believe that any quality information and inspiration to be found on the subject should be shared with those who can benefit the most from it.
So many mothers consider being a “stay-at-home mom” a position to be ashamed of, as if they are in a lower place than all the working, career-driven women out there. My hope is to dispel those doubts, and to give moms a feeling of accomplishment in all that they do. We can and should be just as career-driven as them. After all, we are the primary influence in the formation of future professionals!
I don’t claim to know it all. I’m just another young mom who is smack dab in the middle of the diapers, laundry, and cleaning that comes with toddlers and babies. I need helpful information just as much as any of you.
My goal is to collect the best information on a variety of subjects (parenting, cooking, home decorating, homeschooling, marriage) and share it, with the hope that it will benefit you as much as it is helping me.
I also want this place to be a smorgasbord of ideas and opinions, so if you ever have advice, helpful hints, links to websites (that will help others reading this blog be better mothers and home-makers), or just want to let me know you dropped by, please leave a comment!
The plan is to share something new once a week… it could be an inspirational quote, articles that have helped me in the past, creative ideas for rainy day activities, or just a favourite recipe. If you have any ideas on things you’d like to see here, please leave a comment after any post (I WILL read them all!) and I will try my best to post things that you will enjoy reading and can apply to your life.
Thank you for stopping by!
