For the first time ever I am joining the fabulous women over at 5 Minutes for Mom as they host their legendry Ultimate Blog Party! A chance to virtually party with bloggers from all over from the comfort of our very own homes. (and I don’t have to get my roots touched up first)
I’m Canadian , yes, that is me wearing a “tuque”. You must embrace hats in the winter in Canada. I’ve been happily married for almost 15 years and am the proud Mama to two amazing girls. I started my blog in late 2009 because I needed a place to vent about what was really going on behind the closed and often competitive doors of the suburbs. Too often Mama’s feel the pressure to be the “perfect wife” and the “perfect Mama” when reality is there is no such thing!
At How To Survive Life In The Suburbs I take a quirky look at how a real Mama survives the trials and tribulations of real life. The good, the bad, the sad and often the very humorous. I fess up to some of my most embarrassing moments, um like the time I nearly sent a naughty picture out into the world, I make confessions about what I really do during a day, and curse the scales just like every other Mama in the world. I throw in a couple of giveaways to take the pressure off all that emoting and over sharing.
None of us are perfect, and there is comfort in that knowledge and in taking this journey together!
