September is one of my favorite months. The autumn equinox means a lot to me for new beginnings and shifts in my life. This is the time that I tend to do more self-help and developmental reading.

I can still remember when I got my period for the first time. I was 11 and in the sixth grade. I’d already prepared myself by reading Judy Blume’s “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” many times. And then it happened. I walked into my mom’s room after taking a shower and announced, “Mom, I got my period.”

Grocery shopping was once one of the most confusing things for me as I hit my stride in adulthood. You go to the store. Buy food. But what food do you buy? How do you know it’s enough? How do you make sure you don’t blow your budget?
It feels like it was just yesterday that I was pregnant with Mini and making the decision to breastfeed for the first time. Being completely honest, I wasn’t 100% committed to this idea of breastfeeding. I was 25 and going through a really rough time in life. Divorce, an unplanned pregnancy and jobless–rough time doesn’t fully describe things! I just wanted things to be as easy as possible. She was my first experience in breastfeeding and I loved it.

Moment of truth: teaching my kids to read has been the single hardest part of parenthood outside of potty training. It’s never failed that in the beginning phases of reading, my kids have clowned me in the worst way making me think that it would be impossible for them to learn to read. With Mini I was so scared that it would never happen but as soon as I took the pressure off myself to make it happen when I wanted it to, she got it!

This summer, I had the opportunity to really explore different curriculums to make a more educated opinion on what I would be using for Mini’s schooling this year. In previous years, I was just winging it but this year? This year is all about intention. Which is why I’m glad we tried out Legends of Learning.
Three journals later, I’m still using my bullet journal and loving it! Last year I should have done this but with a new baby and still trying to figure out homeschool life, I didn’t but I finally have. Have what? I’ve set up a homeschool bullet journal! I knew that I wanted to have a homeschool planner but we follow a more eclectic style and I couldn’t find something that met both my needs and their needs so I created one.
