What's your favorite family tradition?
We're still creating our family traditions as our daughter is only two. Christmas is always my favorite time of the year. On Christmas Eve we throw a party for all our whole family. Then on Christmas day we wake up have breakfast and open our presents together.
What's the most challenging thing about being both a blogger and a mom?
I'm a stay-at-home mom that not only takes care of the kids and household duties, but also runs a business from home. My blog is my business.
A bloggers schedule is often not conducive to a child’s schedule. In my case, the most important time of day is the morning, however that is always the most demanding time of day as a mom. Not only does my little munchkin wake up full of energy and bouncing off the wall for mom’s attention, but it's also breakfast time. I often feel like I’m juggling food in one hand and a mouse in the other. Learning how to balance working and being a stay-at-home is a thing I struggle with on a daily basis.
There is a lot of guilt that comes from being a mom that runs a business from home. When I’m in a midst of something work related I will often be plagued with the nagging question, “Am I neglecting my little one”. I think that, “I could be reading to her now, playing with her, teaching her something new” etc. I know I need to work in order for my daughter to have a happy lifestyle, but I still feel guilty a lot.
Then it comes to the housework. Finding the time to complete my work and take care of my daughter is somewhat achievable, but my house at the end of the day looks like a cyclone hit it. When do I find the time to clean the house? Usually, when Dada is home I get some time to get up and fix things or at the wee hours of the morning if I am not trying to catch up on work!
What's the most rewarding thing about being a mom?
Seeing my daughter smile each morning. I never knew how much I could love till I gave birth to my daughter. It's like a part of my heart I never knew excisted had been awakened. The love a mother has for her child is truly indescribable.
