Mom Life

What Mom Life Means to Me

Being a mom is who I am. However, it is not all that I am.

Right now my kids are young. They take the majority of my focus every day. Those little munchkins mean the world to me. I enjoy the time I have providing for them, but I think it's monumentally important to make sure that I do not lose who I am in my kids.

This is my attempt to make sure that doesn't happen. I try to make it a priority every day to do things for myself aside from the things that I do for and with my kids and my husband. There are so many aspects of what make me the woman that I am, it just so happens that my main title these days is mom. Or mama, if I get to choose. I think of this section of my blog as the place for me to share not only who I am as a mom, but also who I am when I am simply Anya.
