Natasha is out on a work trip this week, hope she's doing ok being away from Ethan for so long, but I'm sure she's enjoying a little down time. ;)
Natasha is a working Mom that I look up to, she always appears to have it under control (although, guaranteed there are moments of mass chaos that we don't see!). I also have a huge respect for all of you SAHM's - now, that's a hard job, but also oh so fulfilling!
I should probably introduce myself before we go any further, heyyyy ladies!!! I'm Megan, wife to Mike, Mama to Sofia, I work full-time for a shipping company (if any of you deal with logistics, give me a holla!), write Hello Newlywed Life blog & I own and design jewelry at DolceAve on the side. With all of that going on, family is always my #1 priority. I would give anything to be a SAHM, but that's just not in the cards for us at the moment.
Here's a sample day for us, just because I think "day in the life's" are fun, it's always interesting to see how other people live their lives. Right?
Wake up, get ready & make the bed - this is a rushed process before Sofia rises, 'cause when she's up it's next to impossible to get dressed with the mini tornado working her way through our closet, pulling out every pair of shoes & necklaces that I have. She usually walks in the bathroom rocking my flats "walk-e walk-e" "Mammmma" then I walke walke miss hot stuff right back to the closet to clean the mess.
Get Sofia up (if she's not already) & dressed
Downstairs to grab Sofia's milk, throw her lunch in the diaper bag & off to the sitter
Drop Sofia off & head to work
Pick-up Sofia & give her a snack that I prepped in the AM, otherwise I hear "NACK NACK" the entire ride home...in traffic. Music to my ears.
Home - check the mail, let our dog out, start dinner & throw on some glorious yoga pants
Mike gets home & we eat dinner as a family. So thankful Sofia eats what we eat, makes things much easier!
Clean-up dinner & take a family walk
Sofia's bath (if it's bath night), jammies & milk
Brush Sofia's teeth, read books and chill in the rocker
Tuck Sofia in then I'm off to blog, work on getting orders out, clean the house & prep for the next day
Lights out & an episode of House Hunters International before zzz'ing
Everyday feels so rushed, by time the weekend hits we're all ready to relax. I'm sure many of you can relate. SAHM or working Mom, time is just a tough commodity to find these days. It won't be like this for long, so I try to embrace the chaos!
In honor of Mother's Day & all that each of you ladies do for your little ones, I'm giving away one necklace of the winner's choice. Enter using the Rafflecopter below, winner will be chosen 5/20.
Good luck & thanks for having me over to chat today, Natasha! xo
