Confessions of a Stay at Home Mom
Confessions of a SAHM is my “mom life”
My stories, recipes, crafts, and nonsense that help me pretend to have my shit together.
Shortly after I became a mother I realized there was a shortage (or absence) of places for moms that were honest, real and relatable. So I created Confessions of a SAHM. I truly believe that we are all works in progress and no one is perfect. I believe in being vulnerable, taking care of yourself, trying new things, positive discipline, ,?”
\moving out of your comfort zone, asking for help, making yourself a priority, and doing all the things that makes you happy. If you believe in some or all of those things too and can handle the occasional (okay, sometimes frequent) f-word and strong opinion, then please take a look around, because I think you’re gonna like it here.
What you can expect
The truth is mom life is real life. This is simply a no punches pulled look at raising a child, finding yourself, managing relationships, and all of the beautiful chaos in between. My mom game will be broken down for all to view, leaving you a real time view of what this moms life looks like. Confessions is all of the stories, recipes, crafts, and nonsense that help me pretend to have my shit together. This is the good the bad and the ugly of it. All of the bad mom vs great mom moments compiled for you.
In a very short summary. I’m a born bread Jersey girl with a foul mouth and a deep affection for wine. I live for a good selfie, have a collection of memes, and speak in hashtags. #Sarcasmislife Get ready for bad tv commentary, garbage website reviews, nap time updates, gaudy jewelry pictures, and life hacks.
I’ve never seen myself as the “mom type” and honestly struggle with some of the nuances still. Pregnancy sure as f wasn’t my favorite. In fact, it was my seventh circle of hell. I didn’t immediately fall in love with my son, it took me some time but we’re definitely there now. I’m currently chugging away on year two, so stay tuned for how that works out.
Stay at home sadness
Being an extrovert staying at home was and is hard. Beyond the difficult tasks of keeping yourself AND an additional human being alive, there is NO ONE around. Feeling alienated and without a rudder I got some post baby blues. Trust me, unless you’re lucky enough to have sahm friends you’re pretty much on your own. Everyone goes back to work, the visits slow down, and then it’s just you and the tiny stranger. This was the hardest part for me, I didn’t have “people”. A lot of the mom groups on Facebook were vicious full of judgement and drama. I am not about that life.
I’ve realized that finding your people is important, SO IMPORTANT. I joined some classes with Dominic, started my own mom group, and thankfully found some of my mom people. Stay at home sadness dissipating.
That’s all for now.
