Momma Shaming

Okay, let’s just bring this up, and it’ll probably be my week-long blogging.

Why do moms shame each other? If you think about it, there’s not one thing moms will all agree on. Think about it. Earrings? Breast or bottle? Cover or not?

Do you think you and someone else had the same answers? Probably not. Why can’t we, as humans and as mothers, work together, pull each other up, and help each other? Yes, informing is good, but calling people names, saying they don’t deserve to be parents, or anything of this sort is just uncalled for. Why do we think this is okay?

I don’t understand mommy-shaming, much like a lot of other things. It’s our job to change how we treat each other.

What to Expect for Blogmas

If I haven’t said it enough, Blogmas has started, indeed. I have a couple decent ideas, but they are subjected to change.

My goal is of course blogging every day (given) but I am also starting to be able to open up, so you might be seeing more personal things from me. Not that I can say anyone would or wouldn’t be interested in that, but it’s worth a try.

Cold

The winter season is upon us, and it has finally become unbearable.

Yesterday I went to help my aunt with her shed, we also blessed some moms that needed help. Two with a tree, one with a bed, and one for something else I couldn’t remember. Whatever it was, it meant something to all of the moms, and I am so glad we were able to help.

However, yesterday ALL DAY it did nothing but pour. It wasn’t too bad, but it was bad enough where I was soaked from head to toe, but the end of the 6 hours we spent going through this pod, I was basically a sloshing puddle of water and mud.

Today I wore a dress because I was interviewing and observing in a class, and it feels much, much worse than yesterday. I feel like it’s colder, more dreary. Thank God I don’t have to wake up and go out this morning. Baby Chewy can just come cuddle me and that will be our morning. Only two more weeks until his schools out, exactly a week until mine is out. Just gotta take it day by day.

Did I mention I am from Florida? Floridians don’t do winter. Sometimes I wonder why I moved to what seems like one of the coldest, rainiest places in the U.S.

Christmas List of a Momma

Do you ever get asked what you want for Christmas? It might be the most wracking question for a parent. The mature side of you wants to say “nothing”, but then the less mature portion might have a huge list of items.

Partly a joke, partly true, here is a mommas Wish List:

-Bills paid

-Monetary Stability

-Paid Spa Treatment

-An hour alone. Not even a whole day.

-Breakfast in bed

-Movie day

-Date night

-Chocolates

-Dinner made

-An hour to do whatever they want for enjoyment

 

What else would you want to put on this list?

Thankful: November 15th

Today, I am thankful for the nature. Outdoors are so important, and such a great, amazing thing to me. We live in a beautiful world that is taken for granted, and I think everyone needs more outside time. It helps with depression, calms people down. Best memories are made when people are outdoors.

One of my best memories is sitting outside, around a bonfire with a martini or some other type of drink. Bonfires are maybe one of my favorite things ever.

I feel like the biggest issue with outside is that in the summer, there’s sun, and the sun can burn and blister your skin. However, with enough protection for your skin, I think it’s a great thing to go out and learn something. Learn to pitch a tent, fish, something.

Thankful Posts November 13th and 14th

November 13th: I am thankful for electricity today. If it wasn’t for electric, my mother-in-law wouldn’t be able to breathe, and I wouldn’t be able to play games to escape from reality sometimes. It also helps to entertain my son when I need that 5 minutes to clean, cook, or do homework. Honestly, if we didn’t have electric we would probably find different ways to entertain ourselves and our children, but with this day and age and only minutes at a time, electric is the real MVP here.

 

November 14th: I am thankful for games. Honestly. I am not a violent person, and usually I am calm and level headed. If not, however, I do enjoy picking up the occasional game so that I can get anger/anxiety or even depression I may be feeling out a bit, so that I can go back to thinking well.

 

I’m sorry for not letting you guys know, but I will be either writing something very simple or not writing at all on the weekends. I am deciding to take weekends for my family, unless there’s something huge.

Thankful: November 10th

I am thankful today for food. Rather, the ability to buy and prepare healthy foods.

I know that there’s a lot of places that are actual food deserts, and the loss of honey bees doesn’t help, because now there might be a possible drop in food production in the future. (don’t roast me if there is and I don’t know. I don’t follow that type of thing unless its right there in my face or something. I tend not to find trouble unless it comes to me.) This all being said, I am very thankful that we currently have the ability to purchase food that is nutritious for us and our bodies.
