Dear mom…I’m so incredibly honored you’re here 💖

Do you realize you’re the backbone of your family? The contribution of mothers everywhere couldn’t be more apparent then right now. Like other moms, you’ve probably got a to-do list that’s a block long, and you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed about how to manage it all. 

 

Did you know a mom do 15 hours more a week in domestic duties and unpaid labor than their partner?

Recently, 62% of moms polled said they handle all the: 

  • Laundry

  • Shopping 

  • Cooking 

  • Chores and dirty work 

  • Kids schedules and school activities 

  • Organizing doctor/dentist appointments 

  • Taking them to doctor/dentist appointments

  • Running errands for family 

  • Support aging parents

  • Communication and relationships with extended family

  • Emotional/mental nurturing support

  • All the parenting and discipline

  • Pet care

  • Planning family outings, vacations, etc.

  • As well as…ALL the demands of their professional life 

 

And the list goes on, and on…This is just a fraction of the mother-load moms are juggling right now. If MOTHER isn’t the definition of a superhero, then I don’t know what is…

(And to be clear…ALL moms are working moms)  It’s not your fault, dear momma, it’s unrealistic standards and expectations. I’m here for you. I’m here to give you the support, encouragement and inspiration you need to make the positive, lasting changes you’ve been craving.

I can relate to what you’re going through. I’m a working mom, too.

💖 I’m have two, beautiful teenage sons

💖 I support aging parents

💖 I’m a mom-preneur and run two businesses

💖 And…I’m also feeling challenged by all we’re facing with the pandemic

*Another personal bit about me, I’ve recovered from chronic fatigue. I intimately understand the importance of establishing serious personal boundaries, and creating radical self-care routines*
