I Broke Down Which Helped Me Find My Path – Why I Am Focusing More On Video

Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 7.38.47 PM

This is a story I have been meaning to tell for months. I don’t know why I haven’t. I think sometimes we wait for the perfect time, but it just doesn’t come. I owe it to all of you to discuss why I have been moving more towards video.

I will keep writing, in fact, the quality of my writing will probably go up, now that I am writing a little less. But the truth is, for this part of my journey, and to tell our story best, video is a great fit.

Watch my latest vlog to see why and where I had a breakdown/breakthrough and what I did about it.

The Importance Of Regrouping Before You Parent (Video)

mother and daughter

Parenting is like being on a hamster wheel. It never stops, it never slows down. I find as a mom I can go, go, go and then suddenly I know I need to take a minute to regroup.

On this particular weekend, we enjoy spending some time with friends, but the next morning I find myself in a bit of a funk.

After having a quiet breakfast by myself I am ready to jump back on that hamster wheel and parent.

A Day In The Life 6 (Video) – How I Learned The Hard Way That Self Care Is So Important

On this particular day I am shocked when I not only write a to-do list, but the day goes as planned and I am actually able to tackle everything on my list.

The three girls play so well, but I notice Holden is feeling a little left out, so I brainstorm ways I can include Holden.

While taking care of myself, (which was on my to-do list), I talk about how I learned the hard way that self care is so important, especially after I became a mother.

The Last Days Of Our Summer Vacation

In today’s vlog we continue our summer holiday week after a low-key day at home. I talk a bit about my medical condition that leaves me with less energy and I confess to who I don’t have any framed photos of.

Also, Mike and the kids set up a lemonade stand which was all his idea… I can’t take any credit. To end our fun filled vacation week we go swimming with my family and all of the cousins.

It Finally Happened, Plus A Family Reunion

Cousins

This past week we finally said goodbye to the last pacifier in our home. This is just one step further away from the baby stage which brings a mix of emotions.

You can read more about our family’s experience with pacifiers on Baby Center: There’s a magical age to ditch the pacifier, and I know what it is.

Also, we had a week full of fun while Mike was on holidays, including a family reunion at a farm with all of the little cousins. ¬†Follow along on the vlog…
