Hello! I am Holly, the writer of A Mommy's Blessings...a 29 year old, stay at home mama to 6 children, ages 7 and under!
Why do I blog, and how do I have the time? Well, technically I don't. But blogging is my outsource to connect and stay focused. And to find other mamas who understand, and help them along the way too!
'Cause ya know, my hubby is wonderful, but he can only understand my day so much. After sitting at a desk, he comes home to a frazzled wife, and can't quite get it. How can I be in the middle of picking up toys with a screaming baby on one hip who thinks he has been neglected because I set him down for 2 minutes, trying to tell the 4 year old to stop pretending to kill his brother with his sword, calming down the brother who is crying because the 4 year old is pretending to kill him and he thinks he is now truly dead, giving a towel to the 3 year old to clean up his mess from dipping his stuffed animal in his glass of water on the table that is set for dinner and then "painting" everything with it, all while the pasta is boiling over on the stove...and yet still manage to get dinner on the table within 5 minutes of him walking in the door? Nope, he just can't understand.
But other mommy's can relate!
A Mommy's Blessings is a place to curl up with a cup of coffee and peanut butter M&M's during nap-time, and unwind. It helps keep our sanity!
Here you will find I post daily (well, as regularly as a busy mama of 6 littles can), and have lots to share with you.
* Mommy Mondays (tips and tales from the frontline of motherhood)
* Wednesday Win-It (where you can link up your giveaways)
* Friday Fling (all about organizing and decluttering - 'cause I'm a neat freak)
* Menu Plans
* Frugal Freebies and Deals
* Simple Sundays
* Giveaways are almost always happening here!
Those are some of my favorite things, and so much more....like cloth diapering, baby wearing, homebirth and pregnancy, homeschooling, healthy eating and living, being a Christian wife and mother, homemaking, frugality, product reviews, how-to's, and the crazy antics of life in a family of eight! Lots of fun, quirky posts to help put a smile on your face..and frankly mine, because in my busy day, I need smiles! And, well, my children just don't understand my sense of humor.
