My name is Kimberly. I have been happily married with my wonderful husband going on 13 years. A mother to a 11-year-old daughter and a 1-year old son. Going through the preteen phase and toddler stage. Yay me! I am one Blessed Stressed and very Caffeinated momma. I also have 3 dogs and 1 bird and they are a big part of our lives. I’m sure you will see me talk about them.
I have always wanted to become a blogger but never had the courage to go through with it. Was always scared for people reading my personal thoughts. I have always had a lot I wanted to say. To read other people's thoughts and experiences knowing there is someone out there going through the same difficulties or joy whatever it may be that day.
I had my first child at a young age. Some days when I think about it it's like a lifetime ago. My life and everything around me was different. I learned how to be a mother fast. And everyday was something new to learn. When I thought I had it down 10 years later my son came and all that went out the window. For 10 years raising a daughter I was working spending all other time with her. When she started school I was in PTO, class mom a few year. Volunteering at anything and everything I could be at. I enjoyed it (most days).
She was just about to start middle school when her brother arrived. He is a totally different baby then she was. Like complete opposites. She was a good sleeper and as for my darling son we are at 15 months and just stopped waking up every hour at night. Naps are good some days and others he does not want nothing to do with them. So as you must know I love my coffee especially in the mornings and threw out my day as I usually stay in my pajamas and a messy mom bun. Keeping up with him is a full time job and a half. Bit I am enjoying being a stay at home mom (SAHM) now. Even though I am a hot mess most of the time. On the bad days I'm just warm temp mess, not even good enough to be hot. 😆 I am blessed for so many reasons I could not write them all. But my beautiful , loving, caring daughter is wonderful with her brother (most of the time). She loves reading with him, playing. Also making him mad. The joys of siblings.
I have 3 siblings. 2 sisters and 1 brother. My childhood and growing was different but that's for another time.
My life right at this time revolves around teen emotions summer boredness and wining 1 year old, diaper changes and heathly snacks and the dreaded dinner time. Which by the way I hate. I have tried everything to be a better cook. To be one of those mom's that has a great meal plan or prepares their meals ahead of time especially on night they have sport games of school function to attend. But unfortunately I'm still a working progress. Maybe one day. Luckily my husband will eat whatever I put in front of him. Bless him.
So as far as the challenges I am going threw and the new experiences that happens everyday. At the end of everyday I am blessed. I count my blessings. I remind myself to stop with the worrying the stressing and keep my anxiety in check and enjoy the moments. I know they go so fast. I will miss this time when my kids are all grown up 😢.
I look forward to taking on this new journey and I hope you can come alone with me. I love connecting with people. In this world we need to be together. I will push myself everyday to stop being scared. To stop thinking about it and just DO it
