Universal Truths for all Moms – one kid or six kids

It often seems that becoming a mother suddenly makes you a hot mess needing lots and lots of advice. Whether the advice is solicited or un-solicited the wide range of practical and simply ridiculous tidbits friends and strangers will give you is rather overwhelming. There are books and magazines, and online groups, and forums, and more all dedicated to letting us know what we should be/do as mothers. As a mother to six children, who started with just one, I have found the following to be Universal Truths for all moms….whether you have one child or six.

I hate to admit that most days my hair is in a messy bun or ponytail. But it’s the “MomLife” and I am okay with it. However, there are days when I am determined to make the time to fix my hair and feel a little better about myself!  It’s amazing how taking 20+ minutes to do your hair and make up can perk up your mood and energy for the day!

We recently purchased a small business since moving to Texas. It’s been a new adventure for me. The combination of a salon and boutique. (The boutique is also online.) For the first time since Jayden was born I am going into work several days a week. I have been a work at home mom for more than 8 years now. Getting in the car and leaving my babies has been a new experience!

5 Essentials to Transfer from Diaper Bag to Mom Bag

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

I have been a mommy for over 8 years now. With 6 kids so close in age, I literally have been carrying around a massive diaper bag for EIGHT years!!! I realized a few weeks ago that I haven’t bought myself a new purse in over 6 years. And the last one I purchased was only used maybe 4 times! (on date nights and such)

They are ingenious creations. I have carried half my home around in them for years. Literally… HALF my house! You never know what you may need when you have twin babies! HAHA!! Read more
