What It’s Like to Be a Millennial Mom

Are You a Millennial Mom? | Define Millennial | Millennial Definition | Characteristics of a Millennial Mom

Are You a Millennial Mom? Our generation is raising kids differently. A big part of that is because we are faced with many situations that our parents weren’t.  I can’t remember the first time I heard the term “millennial mom” or “millennial.” To be honest, I didn’t actually think the term applied to me.

What I do know is that other mom’s similar to …

A Mom’s Battle with Anxiety – Wearing Two Masks

My Battle with Anxiety Anxiety – it’s a word I never truly understood until just within the last couple years. We use the word so often in day-to-day situations when we just feel stressed or impatient. However, true anxiety can be debilitating. My battle with it started at a very young age but got much worse after having children. Google’s definition of anxiety is: “a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.” That still doesn’t even come close to expressing the true feelings and symptoms associated with full blown anxiety. …

NEW BABY ESSENTIALS – THE BARE MINIMUM (Everything you need and the things you don’t!)

I know everyone says it, but time really does fly. If you’ve been following along with my blog, you know that we’ve had a rough start with baby Stella.
