Mom Life | Southern Snippets

mom life

Aaaaah! That’s basically the way it is most of the time with a 7 year old boy and a 10 year old girl. Pick that up, take the dog out, laundry, dishes, my husband needs something, more laundry, 5 minutes to myse…what do you need? Did I mention more laundry?

I’m joking, but it’s not that far off. One thing I can definitely say is that I absolutely love being a mom. It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I joke about the bad times, but the good times absolutely outweigh the hard times. 

Can you relate? I would love to hear your best mom stories, so please, please, please send me a message through email or through social media. I want to connect with other moms and share our experiences together. I’m happy to share any tips I have that make “momming” more enjoyable and I’ll definitely take any tips that you have! Moms…we have to stick together!

Father’s Day Gift Guide

Dad’s can be the hardest person to shop for! They buy everything they want anyway! I love giving experiences but this year it’s a little harder with so many places closed. If you are looking for something fun to do, you can always send him for a round of golf, a hiking adventure, a trip […]
