This is my first post on Sarah Smirks. I just wanted to introduce you to my blog before getting into the dirt of real, live posts.[caption id="attachment_17" align="alignright" width="224"] This picture was taken at my son's 1 year birthday party. I'm sure you're wondering why he is so....under dressed. He had 103 fever and was diagnosed with hand, mouth, and foot disease. Have any of you ever experienced that? Any mamas with kids who had HFM?[/caption]
This is a lifestyle blog that I started because being a working mother is hard. I wanted to start this blog as a way to document how I keep my sanity and a forum for others to share their experiences.
I will be posting on topics related to how I keep my house and life in order, baby/toddler stuff I'm learning along the way (I have a 1 yr old boy. I can tell you my story, but I'm no expert!), and how to keep my own identity while wearing the hats of marketing director, wife, mother, friend, sister, daughter, etc, etc, etc. God, how do we keep sane with it all? It isn't easy, so I want this to be a forum - comment, reply, communicate with us. Share your experiences with me as I will share my experiences with you. I want this to be a community, not a diary.
