What is homeschool? I’m going to answer the 4 most asked questions and concerns I’ve gotten about homeschooling my 5 year old, and how we do it.
Keep reading to hear about our experience and some things we do, and don‘t do.
Sometimes I look at my kids and am like: “wtf did I do to deserve this .” Then other times it’s like: “wtf did I do to deserve this!?! ” And it's fine!!! If you feel the same way sometimes, don't be so hard on yourself. Ask any parent and they'll tell you the same and if they don't, THEY'RE LYINGGGGG!!!
Some things I see and hear a lot are mom's going crazy about the latest baby trends, what their babies should be doing at certain ages, what they're supposed to be doing for their kids at surtain ages and just trying to do everything "perfectly".
When I became a mom I was't like that.. I thought maybe it was because I was young? But I now realize that's really not the case.
I got pregnant when I was 19.
When I found out, me and my boyfriend were going through a shaky weird time like every teenage relationship goes through I guess.
We were both sooooooo young and always wanted to be at the next party. So when we found out, we weren't exactly thrilled.
We cannot and will not achieve our dream life if we are not in control of it.
I was thinking a lot about this today and I decided that I'm going to grab life by the balls and make my own "life system" that will assure me and others to achieve our life's purpose and live an awesome life everyday.

So here I am, offering my secrets to you. You're welcome. Read more to find out what my new skincare favorites are!
I’ve been having an uncontrollable urge to write all day today. Actually, all day I’ve been feeling that I need to do something more and like something was missing and I wasn’t sure what that something was. But somehow, at 10:30 pm, I figured it out and it was to write. I don’t know why? But that’s what something has been telling me to do so here I am at 10:30 at night, typing on my laptop in my full sized bed, with my sleeping 3 year old to my right and boyfriend playing a what seems to be a very intense 2k basketball game on the Xbox (scratch that. The game must have been “cheating” because he just randomly got off..) to my left. Having no idea wtf I’m going to write about. Update: Erik the boyfriend is now sleeping.
I have been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do. You know, for money. I say it that way because I hate jobs and refuse to call the next thing I do to make money a job because I want to LOVE it and I want it to be in a unconventional way. For example, right now I’m walking dogs for a living. As much as I realize how unconventional of a “job” that is and as much as I enjoy playing with dogs all day, I know it’s not what I actually want to be doing. Lately I’ve been thinking about creating and setting up a Etsy shop. I just don’t know what I want to create yet!!! Not knowing but constantly thinking is making me feel very unproductive and starting to drive me a little crazy because I’m craving a change NOW and that just cant happen yet. After writing this though, at this second, I’m starting to realize my urge to write today is my way of making me feel productive and as if I’m actually doing something to better myself and life instead of just thinking of different ways to do so. I’ll take it… For now.
After discovering this, I feel a sort of relief and am very excited for sleep now! Thanks brain, fingers and laptop for being there for me tonight! Couldn’t have done it without cha. Goodnight!!! Update: Erik the boyfriend is moving way too much. Kinda weird how much hes moving.. Definitely annoying.
If you’re a young mom and making minimum wage, I highly recommend buying pancake mix your next trip to the grocery store.
That shit will have you set for like 5 days.
I didn’t do what me and my mom did a few weeks (the menu plan thing) and and I just got stuff when I needed it, so we ran out of food for the week and me and my boyfriend weren’t expecting our next paychecks until 3 days later and I’m telling you everyday we had the most filling pancake meals for 3 days straight.
And it was awesome.
So, just some simple advice for you min. Wage workers who are fending for themselves… I’m telling you pancake mix will take you a long way!
Side note: I don’t use garbage syrup. I use pure maple syrup and buckwheat Pancake mix, if you are going to be bad, you might as well be as good as you could be, I always say 🙂
