I’m a 32 year old moonlight writer, an outspoken woman and really much more. I’m married to a kewl librarian man, we have two kids and two pugs. Some days are challenging and depressing while others are fun and productive – I take em’ as they come. This blog is all about me-me-me and how I relate to the world around me-me-me. I’m not super witty or funny but I’m really very honest. So, if you enjoy reading the raw thoughts of a stay at home mom, check in every now-and-then.
Mindful Mothering is about learning to stay connected to what I’m doing from moment to moment as I raise my children. Simultaneously, I’m trying to stay in tune with my own needs and desires. This is not easy work to do – mindfulness or mothering. I used to think one had to be out of their mind to be a mother!
Mindful mothering is something that takes practice and time – especially when you are use to doing what you please when you please and maybe thinking about it later. I don’t feel the need to live like a wild-child any more (okay, I’ve never really been that wild). In fact, it would disable my life in so many ways.
Mindful Mothering is about being the momma I want to be and becoming the woman I am to be.
I’m designating this blog as my mental upheaval and discovery sanctuary.
