When I took ownership of Dallas Moms Blog back in May, I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself into! What I thought would be a little tinkering here and there and a dab of this and that has turned into (almost) a full time job.
I’m doing my best to balance two lifestyles…
Stay at home mom by day.
Work at home mom by night; and nap times.
I consider myself so thankful to be able to spend time with my boys while they’re growing up. I know how fortunate I am to stay at home with them and watch as the reach their milestones, but at the same time, when your work day begins at the end of a long day with your kids, it can be exhausting!
When I took on the role of owner, a lot of plans and events were already rolling. There were some ideas I had to try out on my own to know whether they’d be a success or failure. My time since taking on the site has finally reached a peak. With play dates , 1 promotional event, and contributor meeting in the past, Project Mom quickly approaching this weekend, and our Moms Night Out and Date Night just weeks away, I can’t tell you have excited and relieved I’ll be once October 14th roles around!
For the rest of the year, I’ll be able to focus on just maintaining instead of creating. I’ll be ready for a much needed break from the chaos of planning and coordinating, and can once again put the focus back on my family-literally! Once Dallas Moms Blog shuts down its events for Fall, I’ll be hopping in the car on my birthday weekend to celebrate my marriage at Weekend to Remember in OKC.
Although it’s just Oklahoma, I can’t WAIT to enjoy some time in the car with my husband, reading my latest Book Club book, and catching up on a little personal blogging.
But that still seems light years away.
So for now, I need to put my head down and plow through. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. We’re just not quite there yet!
Want to see what my team has worked so hard on the last 3 months?
Come to one of our events and see me in action! I’d love to have you there!
