31 Days { Of Motherhood }

It's after midnight here and everyone is asleep. 

I don't get much time to myself these days unless I wake up before the sun rises and, well, let's face it, that's just one commitment I'm not willing to make. The house is quiet and my feet are blanketed by a sleeping Sheepie. It will be a few hours before the baby wakes to eat.

I've been a terrible blog reader lately as I can't even tell you the last time I opened up Google Reader (shame on me, it's true). As I dusted off the cobwebs tonight, I noticed that a few of my favorite blogging mamas were participating (here, here, here and here) in The Nester's 31 Days link-up. 

It's the first day of a brand new month. It's such a renewing, refreshing feeling, is it not? I like to pretend on those days that I get to start fresh. That I can create new goals for myself.

I can even create a new(er), slightly different me. In this case, hopefully a skinnier me (but that would mean I would have to give up things like beer and cupcakes and much like waking up before everyone else, that ain't happening). 

But no matter what new month it is, I always tell myself at the very beginning, "I can be a better mom this month." So that's what I'm going to write about for the next thirty-one days.

Seems easy enough, no? 

These posts will be quick. Written at the end of our days and filled with {hopefully} more highs than lows but regardless, they will be filled. 

You should link-up and follow long. Here's to 31 days... 


  1. So glad you're linking up too & thanks for linking me **blushes** :) You NEED to know the Nester. Holy balls. One of my first favorite blogs!

  2. can't wait to follow along. There's just no way i could commit to that right now but I love the idea.

  3. love this idea. let's see if i can stick to it for 31 days. it will officially be my second longest relationship ever if i do ;)

  4. What a great topic! Following you from The Nester. Looking forward to your 31 Days!
