Being a SAHM has many unique extreme highs….which can quickly turn into extreme lows…  What better way to navigate this roller coaster than by sharing it with other moms who are going through the same things?

Over the relatively short time that I’ve been a SAHM, starting in the Fall of 2011, I have found that one of the best ways for me to hold onto my sanity was through connecting with other moms who were going through the same thing.  Knowing you are not alone can be such a comfort….especially when you’re trying to get dinner cooked, keep one of the kids from hurling across the room to dive-bomb the couch and the other is pulling out the contents of her diaper to examine it more closely, just for example….

I hope you enjoy reading about the hilarity, frustration, joy and stress of my day-to-day life as a SAHM.  If you do, I’d love to hear from you.

Simple Tips for Keeping Mommy Sane
