Mommin aint easy as the saying goes and boy is it a tough job. You work long hours, no breaks, get dirty, and deal with a lot of drama. IT is a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it. And I wouldn’t change it for the world. My plate is full, with one of my children being on the spectrum. It takes a lot of my time, and to deal with the stress and exhaustion, I still kept up with my blog. Blogging every day! Not just blogging but reading other blogs, answering emails, doing social media, etc, etc. Then enter my second boy, who is a preemie, and has some health issues. The remaining time goes to him. I was starting to fall into a rut and neglecting myself. You may have seen a few pics on Instagram of me with no makeup, no hair being done remotely, and lack of content. Why? Well, I have been living in doctor offices and hospitals.
Blogging takes time, a lot of time. You may not think so, you may think it is just pretty pictures. But, when you get down to it. Blogging is a lot of work. Work that I enjoy so much that I am always thinking about how to improve. Gone are the days of keeping up with Something Navy, Blonde Salad, and Cupcakes and Cashmere, or Song of Style. I used to want to be like that, be on that level. I still do to some degree, but I have to find my own way, do things the Glamorousandgeeky way. That means, talking about geeky crap, my kids, fashion and beauty, and my newest obsession that I have been actually doing off and on for years, Essential oils. With my son being on the spectrum and my other son being sick a lot I am needing some extra help on top of doctor visits. Their doctors even think the oils will help with things, like my oldest and his teeth grinding.
It isn’t easy being a mom, it is not easy watching your baby cry all night in a sleep study hooked up to all these wires. It hurts my soul to see him like that. It hurts my soul to see my oldest struggle, even though the struggles may help him in the long run. It isn’t easy looking in the mirror and realizing you have to make the choice, exercise or clean the living room or get my glam on. Because in my world it can not be both. At least not right now it can’t be that way. OR maybe I need to get my shit together.
Momming isn’t easy, it is a hard job. And sometimes that job requires a casual uniform. Like jeans and a tee shirt as well as some cute shoes.
Today I am all about something fashionable and comfortable. Being basic is not a bad thing, and you can think of this kind of outfit is a blank canvas. You can spruce it up with accessories that are kick ass! I wore some big earrings from Sugarfix by Baublebar, which was is under $20. As well as some gold shoes and a great mini bucket bag.
Love this outfit!
