Since it’s been so long since I’ve made an actual post on my blog, I think now is a great time to update what I’ve been up to lately.
Sesame Street, Daniel Tiger, Super Monsters. Ha, mom life! Actually, I still mostly watch a lot of YouTube when I have a small bit of free time or I’m cleaning. I posted the links to my favorite channels a year ago, but I’m going to share them again.
Here are my top 3 favorites (not in any type of order).
2 – Brianna K
I found Bri through searching YouTube videos for working mom routines. She was one of the very few people that had a channel and worked full-time outside the home. She seriously gave me hope that being a mom and working full time was possible without completely losing it. She’s a mom-preneure now, but I still love her and her channel.
P.S. I have seriously contemplated starting my own channel just to get more support out there for us full-time working moms!
I honestly can’t remember how I found Blair – Pinterest maybe? I started reading her blog years ago and was following along when she started a YouTube channel. She does a lot of weekly/weekend vlogs, including “clean with me” videos. She’s down to earth and someone I feel like I could be friends with.
**Spoiler alert! She just found out they’re going to have a baaaby!
1 – Kathryn Morgan
I found Kathryn’s channel through Facebook a few years ago. There was a ballet barre routine she had filmed and after watching it I was hooked. This also began my journey back to ballet. Through watching her channel and doing her barre routines and exercises I gained the strength and confidence to join an adult ballet and lyrical class a couple summers ago.
After having a baby I haven’t done much dancing, but I continue to follow her videos (mostly repeats since she doesn’t post as much these days). I absolutely love her and would honestly to love to meet her in person (that could be said for all three of these ladies I listed ;)
She Reads Truth. This is seriously one of the best online devotional sites. I have a hard time being consistent with my quiet time, but this site has helped me the most. The devotional series are always so good!
The Book of Hygge. Before choosing this book I had been thinking a lot of being mindful and present in the moment and I wanted to find a book that might help me focus a little more on this. After looking up different books I kept coming back to this one, mostly because it made me curious. I’m a little over half way through and it’s been a good read so far.
Ummmm….a whole lot of nada! Honestly, my husband is a rock-star does most of the cooking these days. I’ll try and come up with something next month!
This sound machine and projector has been a life saver! We found this little gem at Target (you click here to view the official description).
Gryffin is going through an awful “I’m scared” stage that has wreaked havoc on bedtime. This little machine has helped immensely with bedtime. While he is still scared and I still have to lay with him until he falls asleep, he is not nearly as terrified of his room now.
There are 2 projector settings, one is fish (rotates between 2 kinds of fish and an octopus) and the other is barn yard animals (rotates between dog, pig, and sheep). I thought he would be all about the barn animals, but nope, he loves the fish. There are six different sound settings – I personally like listening to the waves.
Seriously, it’s been one of the best purchases we’ve made recently.
