Hobbies & Discipline

I've been recuperating. Daily grind of motherhood & being a SAHM of two boys left me with a huge writer's block. We've been maid-less & car-free for four months going on to five.

Finding Joy as a SAHM

  Five years. That's how long it took me to fully embrace my role as a stay-home mum. I stopped being the worst critic on myself, my choice & my lifestyle.
