Let me just start by saying I’ve never blogged before in my entire life (“entire” makes me swear like I’m old or something). It never really dawned on me to do it surprisingly – even though I love to write and am constantly in thought about something or another anyways. But I guess there is no better time to start something than NOW.
There are a gazillion mom blogs out there! And it was nice to see a good number of blogs related to neurotic, analytical, overthinking mom’s like me. But I just couldn’t find anything that was MY kind of neurotic. So what will make this different? Well, anyone who knows me well enough… knows that I am a neurotic planner. I plan, log, color-code, and take diligent notes. Why? Because that’s how I function and its actually what keeps me sane. So in turn, this blog is somewhat therapeutic for me as well. Whether I have one follower or one hundred, it does fine by me. 🙂
I’ve gotten multiple requests from friends and colleagues over the past couple years who inquire about my methods for various parenting issues. I’ve consulted with others on sleep training because I am so very rigid about scheduling. So it dawned on me to perhaps put this all in one place for all to access and hopefully I can lighten up some of the underlying neurotic mommisms in others.
At this time, my daughter (V) is 4 and my lil’ man (K) is 2! I think this will be a nice outlet for me as I have just passed the “infant” hump of parenting and moving into the next stage. I call myself a 75% stay-at-home mom, but that isn’t truly the case because I’ve managed to find ways to supplement my income at home (online teaching and a part-time photography business). I have about 5 part-time jobs all together so total all that up plus my mommy duties, and that leaves me quite neurotic and needing a place to feed my soul (aka – HERE).
I hope that those who stumble across this blog will find something of use for their own neurotic parenting lives. Read, enjoy, pass it on.
