It’s past midnight, my son is fast asleep until at least 7:30 (I know, please don’t hurt me🌻😂😘), so the only thing to do is stay up and post another raw, non-proofread compulsive post. I promise my next uploads will be more structured and polished. 💖

I’m sure you can all relate to Mom Brain, the thing that makes us compost the avocado mash and put the shells on the toast, the thing that makes us forget our middle name, that makes every single object go by the, “whatever-that-is,” and the thing that turns us all into Ozzy Osbourne of the Aughts:
This meme was me AF during my pregnancy, tho 🤰🏻🧟♀️😅💯
So, this is kind of another nonsense post to keep me in the habit of blogging. Between being a SAHM, a freelancer/proofreader, writing for a website called, “Geeks Under Grace” attempting to ghost write for my FIL, trying to make sure my family eats right, working out…the list goes on…some things fall to the wayside. Things like the laundry, dishes, and entertaining the idea of not neglecting my own creative undertakings.
I know I don’t need to tell you that the balancing act of performing at work, keeping up the house, maintaining a social and romantic life, staying in good mental and physical health is a tough endeavor in and of itself, now add keeping a baby alive and…it’s the SIMS on crack. But we can’t turn it off…and there’s no motherlode cheat.
While it’s easier said than done, finding an outlet is super important. Self care will help you better care for your baby/ies. Even if it’s just for a half hour while the rest of the house sleeps, enjoying a nice glass of wine and seeing what that netflix series everyone keeps going on about is all about.
Even if the only time you can catch a break is once a week–catch that break with a Master Ball! Don’t let that legendary get away! A little time to yourself is super effective in boosting your Mom HP.
I’ll have a more in-depth post on how to get away and sneak self-care into your Mom routine–a parental escape-rope, if you will. So stay tuned. 😉
Btw, if you don’t play Pokémon I apologize for all of my poke references–if you do, did yo catch em all? 😂 #momscandadjoketoo
So this post turned out longer than I thought it would! TL;DR: Self care is essential, so try and get it while you can! More on this later!
