Something I've been trying to work on is being judge-y. Not only of others but myself. I am my own worst critic, but I think most people are. Before I had Rory I judged other mom's all of the time.

Lately, I've been doing a lot of thinking about my professional goals and such. I graduated nursing almost three years ago but moving, maternity leave and jumping from job to job has been hard on my professional life and my career has lacked consistency. Sometimes, I feel like I just haven't been committed enough. Goals seems so out of reach sometimes, laziness sets in and excuses are made. SO many excuses. "I don't have enough money and I don't have enough time," are probably my most common.

I've come to realize these are horrible excuses, that shouldn't be excuses at all. Money is fluid and will come and go throughout life and time is something that will always escape us. But rather than trying to do the impossible and prevent time from moving, I can try to live an intentional life and cut out the excess noise/distractions. Not to make time, but to make space for more important things that serve myself and my family.

Professional goals this year that I want to accomplish are getting my Perinatal Nursing Certificate and start the journey of becoming both a Birth and Postpartum Doula. Now that my maternity leave is coming to an end, it feels good to direct my focus towards this and I am going to dive in head first.

Im interested to know how others have juggled being a working mother and wife while taking on classes/school?

I've been pretty absent from this space lately. I guess I just haven't had much time to write and nothing super significant has happened as of recent except for the other day.

Last night, I decided to start dating my husband again. Andrew's my best friend, the love of my life, my RIDE OR DIE. But we just haven't been able to get it together lately romantically. To be honest, we are both utterly exhausted at the end of the day and we just want to tap out.

A little snap from this morning, still in our pajamas watching the snow fall before running a warm bath for Rory. I just bought a slew of bath toys, a bath mat and a bath faucet cover online yesterday so I am excited for those to arrive soon.

Man, I am so glad I bought Rory that brand new snow suit and baby sled for Christmas....

Yesterday marked nine months or 39 weeks + 2 days of Rory being earth side. Exactly one more week to go until he's been out of my womb for as long as he was in (40 weeks + 2 days). I truly don't know where the time has went. Everyday he is doing something new, and everyday he looks bigger and older.
