Holy crap, it’s my first blog post…
So I guess some introductions are in order. I’m Taniya (pronounced Ta-NEE-ya), a 31 year old wife and mom of 2. See those adorable cherubs on the homepage? I’m lucky enough to be their mama, and most of the time I love it. The other times I’m hiding in a corner hoping all the messes will clean themselves, the babe will put herself in her crib when she’s done screaming, and that my son will figure out how to tie his own damn shoes. (I always seem to forget this fact as we’re running 10 minutes late trying to get out the door.)
I started this blog after a few people asked me if I had one; simple as that. I have a lot to share with people!! I love making people laugh, and sharing all my tips for things that I get asked about often. I am by no means an expert in anything, although I’d like to think I’m pretty good at many things. I am not perfect, nor do I strive for perfection; who has time for that?! I do try to do my best in everything I do, and that seems to resonate with people. We are all trying our best, especially when it comes to parenthood. I want to write about that, and find out what YOU have to say as well! I also want to write about my adventures as a part-time single parent. My husband is an airline pilot, which means he is gone for days at a time while we try and form some semblance of a schedule when he’s gone.
I am no weakling, and I think my self-reliance and self-sufficiency are traits that make me better equipped to handle being a pilot’s wife. Any pilot wife will tell you that this lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. The women I have met in the same situation as myself are some of the strongest, smartest, and hard working women I’ve ever met. Whether we stay at home, work at home, work part-time, full time, or run businesses, there is a camaraderie among us. We know what it’s like to wake up to an empty bed and forget why, to forget what day our husbands are coming home because we don’t even know today what day it is, or even what state (or sometimes country) our husbands are in at the moment. It’s an interesting life, that’s for sure! And one that I hope you will soon understand as I tell you more stories. I’m sure you can relate to them, even if you’re not a pilot wife! I have a great respect for ALL mamas – we are all navigating parenthood the best we can.
I hope you enjoy reading, you’re in for some good times!!
