Greetings! I am a first time mom to infant twin boys. Never ever did I imagine this would be my life. Now that it is, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Executive turned stay at home mom, I’m still trying to figure things out with my new “job”. Motherhood has forced me to become organized and develop a routine-a far cry from the laissez fare and carefree spirit I was not so long ago. Pieces of that Nicole are still there, but quickly retreat when two infants are screaming & inconsolable. Don’t get me wrong, becoming a mom hasn’t stopped me from being me, its just created a better version of me. I still enjoy the same things, hanging with friends, pampering myself, etc., but with a different perspective and with my family in mind. I have so much to learn and experience on this journey and am absolutely overjoyed about it all.
Hi I’m Kaila and I have a two year old daughter, Chloe. Life has not always been a walk in the park since having Chloe, but I have learned to make the best of things. In the beginning, learning to make time for more than just Chloe was challenging. I breastfed for fourteen months so we were very close and connected. I also took Chloe to work with me for the first six months before sending her to daycare.
I think making a detailed schedule that included everything from my work day to self care days helped A LOT. Since then, balancing everything has been much easier and manageable. I was even able to go back to school and obtain a third degree once I figured out what worked for me.
Lastly, I would say don’t think you have to lose who you are once you become a mother. It is very important to to make time for your self, like you make time for the baby!!!!
travel & more.
