Every Day Mom

In lue of Mother's Day this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to talk about the things that make me an every day mom. I'm not a Pinterest perfect mom who does every single fun craft with my little ones, who keeps my house looking like a five star resort, or who makes Food Network worthy meals every night. Let me clarify as well, I have no problem with those moms that I referred to as "Pinterest Perfect", in fact, I am insanely jealous of them. I wish I could make an amazing meal and keep my house perfectly spotless, but the honest truth is that I can't. I could, but then I would probably never sleep or shower or spend quality time with my husband.

I'm talking about the moms, like me, who are lucky to have brushed their teeth that day, find it an accomplishment to have gotten their kids up, dressed, and fed for the day, and who's version of cleaning the is taking the toilet brush and giving the toilet a quick scrub as the water is mid flush.

Okay, yes, I do clean my toilet a little bit better than that, but you get the picture.

Finding the Balance

It's been a long time since I have written to you all, and while I want to say that I am sorry, I'm not.

I desperately miss writing, but I am not ashamed to admit that I am in a bit of a rut. Since Little Boy was born, I have gone completely MIA and have been spending as much free time as possible with my boys. I also work part time from home and my schedule has been so busy with that, I am finding it hard to find the balance of maintaining the blog.

Every day is an inner battle with what I should do with Mommy's Obsessions. Do I close the doors (so to speak)? Do I just let it sit with no activity? Do I dive head first into what I use to do with it? I can't make a decision and honestly it breaks my heart a little bit to think about giving up the blog. I don't want to, but I feel like I'm letting you all down.

5 Things That Baby #2 Loves

Mommy's Obsessions did not receive compensation from any of the mentioned brands, we are simply sharing what Baby #2 enjoys the most thus far!

When I found out that I was pregnant with baby #2 my immediate thought was "I wonder how close to Little Mister [in terms of demeanor, features, etc] he/she will be". I had saved majority of my baby items from Little Mister but I knew that I wanted to get a few new things for Little Boy as well. It's funny, being a parent you are so sure that you will know what your next child will love, almost as though you have some sort of psychic ability. But then they're here, and they're growing, and they're proving you wrong.
