I’ve been blogging for almost 5 years now. Five years of documenting my babies, their births and pregnancies, my journey to lose the baby weight and my discovery of CrossFit.
Now that my son is almost 5 and my daughter is 3, I don’t feel comfortable telling their story on here anymore. It’s their story to tell and maybe some day they will want to start their own blog, but for now, I’m not going to be sharing their personal stories.
Many of you have been here since my son was a newborn and we leaned on each other for advice about everything parenting-related and for that, I am SO grateful! My blogging friends were invaluable to keeping as much sanity *as possible* while starting my motherhood journey.
I feel as though I’m starting a new chapter in motherhood. One where my kids are in preschool and I have a tiny bit more time to “myself” during the day. I know it’s time to take a break from blogging when the last thing I want to do when I get some free time is sit in front of a laptop and write about myself or my family. I’ll write about my fitness adventures when I feel like it, but I don’t see it being that often right now. Who knows, maybe the writer’s block will miraculously go away next week…
So this is goodbye for a little bit. I’ll pop in here and there while I’m figuring out how to navigate this new chapter and I’ll leave the site online since I’ve had readers tell me they like to go back and read about my struggles with breastfeeding or kids who don’t eat. If this blog can help one mom struggling with a Failure to Thrive diagnosis or the like, it will be worth the hosting fees I pay..
My friend and I are starting a new venture that I’ll share with you pretty soon. I think my local Rhode Island female/mom friends will be excited Until then, take care of yourself and keep in touch on Twitter & Instagram!
