Mommy Style Monday: What I Wish I Knew

Good day to you all! Thanks for stopping by.

I had so much fun doing a fashion post link up that I jumped at the chance to do another link up with some more fabulous bloggers, for a series called Mommy Style Monday.

Like the name suggests for the most part its style/fashion minded.  So to my surprise the first topic I get has nothing to do with fashion or style. Gotta tell ya I was a little relieved. I'm still learning the ways of trying to be fashionable. The topic is "what i wish i knew" about being a mom.

Okay, lets dive into this head on.

So here is my list of what I wish I knew about being a mom before becoming a mom:


I know what your probably thinking:

"that's not even an answer" "nobody wishes that!?" "she's crazy"  "liar"

As I thought about this topic over the last couple weeks, I just could not come up with something that I wish I knew. Maybe if I was asked this questions in my new mom life i would probably have a list of 100 things. But then I thought, well maybe I can't think of anything is because I'm glad I didn't know what I was doing (and still don't).

I really am not the type of person that needs to know what's coming or really thinks to far ahead and I try not to dwell on the past.  I'm glad for my lows and highs. I feel like I am a better mom for failing so many times.

Evelyn now almost 9

Amelia- coming up on 7
Camden my crazy 3 year old toddler

Leonard my sweet and cranky 3 month old

I'm glad that everything I went through with each one of my kids was a surprise. Bonus,my kids still love me and want to hang out with me even though I think I'm royally screwing up most days. 👍

real life mothering at it's finest people.

I'm probably like way off the mark on this topic, but there you have it folks.  I've never been one to really follow the rules exactly anyway. I'm a rebel, just don't mention that to my kids, cause they need to follow every direction and rule they are given, for all time, forever and ever.

Thanks for reading and looking at pictures of me with my babies.

  1. I seriously love your take on this topic! So different, but I can totally relate to it too!! :)

  2. I love this! Haha. I like to be surprised too! Your kids are adorable!

  3. This is the best! I love that we had similar pictures too... I really have no idea what I'm doing and I'm so glad I'm not the only one!

  4. what i love about kids is that they are so quick to forgive and forget. i think most of us like to think we know what we are doing and that we have it all together, but in reality we are all just taking it day by day and making it up as we go. kids are pretty much the best!

  5. I love this perspective! I'm kind of the same way. My motto with my baby has been to just go with the flow! And I feel like we're both happier because of it. I don't stress over what I'm "supposed" to be doing. I just listen to my baby!

  6. This was my first thought when I was trying to think of what to write for my post. I couldn't really remember what I didn't know about motherhood before Gwen! Well, I know I didn't know lots of things, but it was hard to come up with specific things!

  7. I loved this answer, you are awesome! :)


Thank you for commenting! I love reading every one!
