It's easy to get caught up in your routine and chores every day, but don't let it consume 100% of your life. It can be pretty stressful at times, but if you take it one day at a time and try to roll with the punches, you may be able to avoid stress a little better.
While other moms are busy cleaning their house, catching the latest show on Netflix or exercising while their child naps, you're sitting in your makeshift office (a.k.a. your closet) trying to type fast and write that blog post that's supposed to have been published weeks ago.
So, I'm writing this as I am one week away from my official due date. I just left the house to work in a coffee shop so that I could concentrate on the overwhelming list of things that I want to accomplish before baby #2 arrives and my life as we know it, will never be the same.

Some people live for their children. They stay in a career they don't like because it pays well enough to provide the very best for their children. I think that is admirable. Don't get me wrong, I would give my life to save any of my kids, but I have a different outlook.
You always hear the saying that Moms are "superheroes" and can take on any job given to them and handle it like a boss, but when you're a little kid you don't always get exactly what that means.
Does motherhood define ME? No. Well, yes. Kind of. (Maybe?)
It's Back-To-School season, so we asked moms in the mom.life app how they felt about it and what it meant to them. Their answers lead to this list of 20 reasons moms can't wait for "Back-To-School."

While watching the incredible gymnasts compete in the Rio Olympics this past week, it struck me that the hard work, effort, and concentration they put into keeping their balance during their routines can shed some light on the reality of the "balance" we try to accomplish in life.
I was raised by a working mom. I am a working mom. I see you. You're doing good work.
I wouldn't mind if a little more cooking and grocery-related marketing was geared toward me and my male compatriots, but I certainly have no right to complain about it... or to complain about anything for that matter.
What I realized is that I achieved what I set out to succeed in my network marketing business. I no longer see sales as slimy but as a wonderful tool to help people find what they need to better themselves or make their lives easier when used with integrity.
Mommy bloggers often get a bad rap among entrepreneurs and other professionals. They're not taken seriously as business women, and are mostly seen as women who sit around blogging about crafts and kids and their daily lives. Sure, they may earn a few bucks on the side doing it, but blogging isn't a "real job" and mom bloggers aren't "real" business women.
