I'm Sam and I'm here to say, I know what you're going through. As a Speech and Language Pathologist, martial arts instructor and nanny, I believed I had all the experience I needed in motherhood. But, what I did not understand, was the balance of it all. Giving all of yourself to your children and your life together but feeling as though you haven't given enough. All the while searching for your new identity, no longer the woman you used to be. It is so easy to succumb to the pressures of motherhood! Finding my MomSquad, changed it all. Realizing that you are not alone in this journey, that your feelings are so incredibly matched by so many other moms, and having someone to talk to that isn't two-feet off the ground, can change your momlife. And now, it is my mission to help other mommas find their Squad. Let's do motherhood together.
My Sweet Babes
"Just like you are figuring out this world, I am figuring out how to parent you. Naturally, that equates to feelings of unease, am I too hard, too lenient, am I teaching you what you need to know, am I giving you the tools to be successful in life. Then I see you. I see you being generous, kind, loving and intellectual . Then I know, you are doing just fine"
How Can We Do It All?
The expectations of motherhood have changed drastically through the generations. Our generation’s presumption? We should be working full time to help support our families and be a proper role model to our kids, while still being supermom to all of our children, cooking healthy wholesome meals in our perfectly cleaned homes, exercise, maintain friendships and don't forget to keep your sanity. I decided to stop being a part of the preconceived notions of this generation’s version of motherhood. I do my all instead of it all and in that, I have found happiness. Learning to live in the joy of the little moments and letting things go has brought me such peace in this journey. I have been able to turn a handful of hobbies into my job, and guys, I am living my best life! Through it all, I hope to help other moms come together in this crazy life and know they are not alone.
