"Simply Mom"

I can't really say that I am new to blogging, because I have had this blog page for over 3 years now. Occasionally I have logged on, written what was on my mind, re-read it, then deleted! That was BFB (before facebook). :) A few weeks ago I started working on making the page "cute" but still had writers block. What I realize now is, I don't have to say anything profound...I can just say whatever is on my mind. And ask my husband (or family), I have plenty I could ramble on about. My struggle will be to focus my self-diagnosed ADHD brain and stay on topic, so you ("you" being potential readers) can follow me.

After much deliberation over the last 3+ years, I have settled on calling my blog "Simply Mom". There are a few reasons for this title. First and foremost, I am a mom! Second, as mom to a 5 year old girl, 3 year old girl, and a baby boy on the way, "mom" is ALL I hear within any given 30 second period of the day. My chatty girls will "mom" a question out to me, then "mom" another request before hearing my reply to their first shout-out. Then when they are actually playing on their own--what do they play?... "mom"!! Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying it because I know it is a phase of life for the time being, but it can get old. Thirdly, "simply mom" is my title because I am not super mom. I try to keep things simple. I am not the best house-keeper, although I strive to keep our common areas well-kept. I am not a gourmet cook, not that I don't know how to cook, but anything that is served on our table probably took 20-40 minutes to get from the fridge to the plate...or occasionally from the take-out box to the plate. :) We run a business out of our home, so I honestly don't have the time to go "all out" on these things. And ultimately the simplicity gives me more time with my family which is of utmost importance to this busy mom of 3.

  1. Oh gosh, I'm single and live such a different life but it is fascinating to be "on the inside" of Momville.

    Love the page design.
