Hi there! My name is Lynsey, I am the founder of Real Mom Blogs. I am a wife, a mother, medical records director, and blogger! I wear so many hats, including the aunt of 7, sister to 6, daughter to 3, and best friend to the many few. You know who you are! As you can see, my life IS CRAZY.
My family and friends are everything to me! So, I go out of my way to make sure the important people in my life are well taken care of. Sometimes that means just being there, being supportive, and listening. Other times, that means I need to provide financially for my husband and child. To keep a roof over our head and food in our bellies. We also like to have fun! I take my son everywhere with me. Every Saturday we go to my little brother’s baseball games. When we can, we go to my sister’s dance or singing competitions. At least once a month, we try to get all of my mom’s kids together for a big family dinner. I also have my husband’s family that we have family dinners with. Then there is also my dad who lives an hour away. We like to see each other as often as possible. Having most of my family living in Utah makes things very nice. Utah is easy to travel, even when we are all spread out!
I only have boys. A furry, 7-year-old, mini schnauzer. An adorably frustrating almost 4-year-old, and my overly handsome husband (who sometimes is like another child). I would like to eventually expand our family, but for now, it’s just the 4 of us! We are your average family. Nothing special here.
I started Real Mom Blogs because I was tired of reading mommy blogs about “perfect” moms and their “perfect” families. There was SO much to say and nowhere to get it all out. I wanted to start a blog written by a real mom. So I did! I started Real Mom Blogs in November of 2016. It was slow at first, but I feel it picking up. It demands more and more of my time every week!
So I have a full-time job, full-time blog, and more than full-time family! How the heck do I manage? Well, I enjoy every minute of it. I have chosen to do things with my life that are things I love! Sometimes there are scheduling conflicts, and those suck. I have learned that it is okay to say no sometimes and I don’t have to make EVERYONE happy at the same time. Most of the time it all works out, and others I end up running around with my hair on fire!
My best tip on surviving life is to take time for yourself. Even if it is just 20 min a day. You have to take care of yourself too!
