There’s been a lot of stuff stewing up in my brain cavity lately. While I am currently having a brain fart and cannot gather enough words to dedicate an entire post for each thought I figured I’d just dump them all in a lovely bullet-style list.
– Between the federal election and a municipal referendum, I feel like I’m all voted out. I’m glad that I don’t have to see campaign signs or be flooded with PSAs on social media. While I won’t get into how exactly I voted, I will say that my ballot helped pick a winner in one and lost in another. I’m curious to see how each decision pans out either way. (Vague, much?)
– I’m a believer in “If you don’t like what you see, change it.” That being said, some things you can’t change, like what people choose to post on social media. In that case, I make the decision to unfollow or minimize the stuff I see from that person.
– I cannot decide if I want another kid or not. Even before Isla came into the world I had wanted three kids, but now I’m wondering if maybe two is enough. My heart is so full, but there are days when I think I can make room for one more. There’s a misconception over why I may or may not want another as well, and I fully intend go write a full post on this in the future. (I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before.)
– I don’t plan on being a stay-at-home mom forever, but I don’t know what I want to do once I’m ready to reenter the workforce. Journalism in this city isn’t particularly a viable career option anymore, but I’m either under or over qualified for everything else I’m interested in. Aside from going back to school and completely retooling myself, I’m stumped. (And I can’t even wrap my head around how I’d manage being a “mature” student with two kids.)
That’s it for now. I’ll leave you with an honest photo of the girls and I.
What’s been on your mind lately?

I am seconding you on all the points! With the exception that I went ahead with baby number three, well after the first two kids.
It really is a personal choice, and it can feel like standing on the edge of a diving board. You either go and don’t look back, or you climb down the ladder and know that the jump wasn’t for you. Weird analogy, but that’s how I felt about it. And for a long time, I kept going back down the ladder on the idea!
If you’re ever looking for another stay at home mom to have a coffee with, we should meet up! I think we have a lot in common :)
We totally should! I’m all for new mom friends ☺
That picture is hilarious and captures life with kids perfectly! Why are you yes and no for having another kid? I’ve always wanted three and my husband wants two…we’ll see who wins!
Oh man, good question, what has been on my mind lately haha. Work has been taking up A LOT of my brain space lately so much so that I’ve definitely been letting some of my personal/side stuff slip and have been floundering to keep up with everything.
I’ve always wanted 3 kids and Eric has joked he wants 5 (NOT HAPPENING!) haha. But we will see what happens after we actually have one!! I don’t think I know the reason you go back and forth but maybe when you blog about it it will spark my memory!
