Mom Monday – Megan N.

Another Mom Monday! Today, I am featuring my friend Megan. She also has a baby Theo’s age, and is a talented graphic designer. She’s real funny, and inspired me to get a Peloton!!

Name(s) and age(s) of children:
Maisie 15 months 

Biggest parenting fail:
Oh man….how much time do we have? While there have been many. I think one that sticks out to me is one day cutting Maisie’s nails and clipped her finger on accident and that sucker bled for forever. That was so stressful and I felt like a terrible parent. I called the pediatrician and I think she thought I was certifiable for calling. Needless to say, she recovered just fine. 

Favorite concert:
I am an emo kid a heart. My favorite concert hands down was Incubus….I literally know every word to all of their songs…My husband was mortified to be sitting with me while I was jamming out with all the other 30-40-year-old emo adults. 

Favorite travel destination:
Chamonix, France. Honestly, the most beautiful place on earth and their food is *chefs kiss*

You’re at home doing chores. What’s on as your background noise? 
The Taylor Strecker Show or Bravo

Describe your ideal date night.
A nice steak house and a good bottle of wine then being able to sleep in the next day lol. 

What has been the best/worst part about being a mom?
The best part is the overwhelming amount of love you feel for this tiny human. Also, they are pretty hilarious and entertaining. The worst part is your life does a 180 the minute your baby is born. I always thought people were being dramatic when they talked about how life-changing it is to have a child. Then I had Maisie and my life was turned upside down which wasn’t an easy adjustment for me. I remember crying at my 6-week OB checkup saying essentially “What have I done?!” My OB was so sweet, she told me she went through the same thing and felt better when she went back to work because and I quote “at least I knew what the hell I was doing there.” She also prescribed me Zoloft LOL.

Who is your celebrity crush?
Charlie Hunnam
Jason Momoa
Ryan Hurst

Pandemic Fatigue

It’s been a while since I shared what’s on my heart, and I feel like I’m in a bit of a slump, in general, in life. But we are all healthy and hanging in there!

I think pandemic fatigue has hit my household very hard, along with pretty much everyone else I talk to on a regular basis. I was chatting with a friend recently, and the fatigue is hitting harder now, than it did when we were isolated in March and April.

We think it’s because there are so much choices to be made right now. Things are open. People want to hang out. Grandparents want to see their grandbabies. We want to go out to eat and support our local restaurants. How do you know what level of risk you are willing to bear? How do you make those choices for yourself, and your family?

It is so dangerous right now, and scary. There’s still so much we don’t know. Theo is too young to wear a mask, so anytime he has to leave the house, he is unprotected and therefore we are not protecting the others around us. The older he gets, the more he wants to do, but the only time he’s left the house recently was to go to his 15 month well child visit. Thankfully, he doesn’t know any better. An exciting day for him is playing downstairs in the morning, and upstairs in the afternoon! Ha!

For everyone out there experiencing pandemic fatigue, wondering if you’re doing ‘enough’ to protect your family, and grieving your life before the pandemic: please know that you are not alone, and we will get through this together.
