Hi Blog

Who is the Realistic Mom and what is she doing blogging?

I’m what I consider a mom in the real world.  I never intended to be a WOHM (work outside the home mom), but crazy economic times (read: stuff went downhill with my hubby’s job) forced me to get a job to help support our family (more on them later).  Sure, I wish I could go back to being a SAHM (stay at home mom) full time, but until things even out, Hi Ho Hi Ho it’s off to work I go.  Do I like my job?  Sure.  But it’s not my “real” job.  My real “job” is at home, caring for my family and children.  And even though I work double shifts (mom by day, worker by night), my Day job is my #1 priority and that will. never. change. 

And why I’m blogging?  Oh I don’t know.  Wanting to validate my beliefs, thoughts, feelings and ideas as I navigate parenting in this life with other parents that are in the same boat.  I’ve never claimed to be a perfect or supermom.  But I’m trying the best I can given our circumstances.  I make mistakes, just like anyone else.  And I know you do to.  NEWSFLASH! It’s okay.  It is really.  I want this blog to help us “normal” parents see that there are wide varieties of “normal” and what works for you and your family is just fine.  I plan to talk more about how we got to where we are and where we are going later on.
