Hey hey there! My name is Samantha, but honestly I prefer Sami so that’s how I am going to refer to myself from now on. I have been married for almost 6 years now to one of the most incredible men I could ever know! Of course, all of us think that our spouse/significant other is better than anyone else. Great thing about that? THEY ARE! Since we all have our own likes, wants, needs, of course we can say that ours is the BEST! No one is better for me than my Jesse. 🙂
I have two beautiful, wonderful, amazing, smart, messy, loud, exhausting, and patience-testing boys. 6 and 2 years of age. I wouldn’t trade them for the world really, but I won’t lie, there have been some days the thought has crossed my mind. (not seriously though) We all have those moments where we just want to say “Go away and come see me when you’re grown” or something like that. I’m sure that not every mom or parent out there has those thoughts, but I’m just being honest and blunt. I don’t think it makes me a bad parent. I think it makes me normal.
I will also say that I like to read, play with my kids, ect.. I cook, clean, work, blah blah. Don’t most of us moms? I guess what I am trying to say is that I am not anyone that is extraordinary or some spectacular “supermom”. I’m just as in the dark as most, I have my great traits and my downfalls. I am, well… human. I was married young and became a mother young and even though I’ve had six years experience as a wife and a mom, I learn new things everyday and most times it just becomes more and more confusing.
I too, struggle with the demands of being a woman, mother, wife in today’s world. Media, books, friends, family wanting, telling, or needing something different. I have yet to figure out how I can do it all. I am not sure that I will, however I have learned quite a bit through research, self-reflection, and trial and error. I follow advice, I listen to other’s opinions, and I have found a lot of them very useful! So that’s what I am here to do.
I want to share my experiences, give advice, share advice given, receive feedback and create a community of moms new, old, young, and everywhere in between to help each other. It’s a demanding world out there and trying to keep up is exhausting! So, please read a few of my posts and let me know what you think!
