Are You a Saucy Mama?
you know you're a Saucy Mama if:
YOU'RE READY to make JOY a part of your self-care
YOU BELIEVE parenting in the age of perfectionism is a real buzzkill
YOU FEEL motherhood could be a little less neurotic and a lot more of the F-word (FUN! but if you thought the other word, you're def our peeps)
YOU WANT to still be you and pursue your interests, guilt-free
you're bold. brazen. and a little irreverent.
Who said mamas have to throw in the towel on their own lives?!
“I really lost myself after I had my baby”
“If I had an hour to myself, I wouldn’t even know what to do with it”
“I’m not even sure I know what interests me anymore”
“I really want to pursue this project but I just don’t have the time”
“I’m too exhausted to even think about doing something just for me”
“I know I need to do my own thing sometimes, but I feel SO GUILTY taking that time away from my littles”
GURL. WHUT. If even just one of these tragic Debbie Downer statements has come out of your mouth before I am soooo glad we found each other!
Listen, sister. Please believe me when I say: I am RIGHT THERE with you. Having my daughter rocked my world in the best way possible. I’m one of those absolute weirdos who genuinely loved the baby days (even the early newborn ones!) and was totally down with pouring every ounce of myself into my new role as Mama and caregiver. I became a 10000% better version of myself, thanks to my daughter.
But —you knew there was gonna be a ‘but’, didn’t you?— around her 1st birthday (omggg ALL the feels) as she grew more independent I realized there was someone I’d kinda sorta been neglecting: Yours Truly. Where was I in this picture? WHO was I?
I’d left paid work to raise my babe and had #noregrets. At the same time, I was ready to fill my cup again by pursuing my own interests and passions.
What about you? Are you with me? I want to help you kick the ass out of your excuses and start doing something for YOU for a change. Wanna get back into practicing yoga? Want to start a dog-walking business? I got your back, boo. Heads-up: this work is not for the faint of heart but that’s okay. You got gumption and I know it.
