I am a mom of two little girls, a nurse, and at the moment stay at home mom. A job that I find immensely challenging and rewarding. I will be going back to work in November and am very sad that I cannot remain a full time mommy and home maker. I live in sunny Southern California and am an accidental Attachment Parenting practitioner. Meaning all of the parenting I do actually has a name. I breastfeed, baby wear, cloth diaper, and co-sleep. The breastfeeding was deliberate. Baby wearing and co-sleeping evolved out of necessity. I also am newly plant based. I have been a long time ovo-lacto vegetarian. However, after reading all the health benefits of a plant based (aka vegan) diet, I am transitioning. It’s hard with societal and familial pressure to eat unhealthy foods. I am definitely not perfect but I am trying hard.
I’m not quite sure why I decided to start a blog. Perhaps to chronicle my daughters growing up. Maybe to keep track of recipes I have tried. Maybe to share photos. I love books, food, and I’m attempting to get more fit by exercising. With two little ones, it is very hard to find the time but I know how important it is. I’m lucky enough to have my parents close by who will take the kids at a moments’ notice.
I will try to post regularly. But who knows. I don’t even know if I’ll tell my friends and family that I am writing this blog. Maybe it will be just for me.
