Feeling tired, overwhelmed, and struggling to "get it all done"?
I get it. I am a working homeschool mom with a teenager in high school.
- Kids are hard work
- Running a household isn't easy
- Trying to figure out homeschool can be a beast
- Work sucks at times
- Have I mentioned teenage hormones?
Then there's figuring out what to fix for dinner!
Yes, my friend the struggle is real!
You being here tells me you want to pick up a few tips to make your life easier, or at least connect with another mom who understands what you deal with on a daily basis.
Don't worry...I'm here for you!
Think of me as the buddy you meet for coffee, tea, wine, or margaritas. We can commiserate with each other over having to hide out in the pantry to eat chocolate. You can laugh at my Pinterest fails. We can cry together over our babies growing up.
Know what else?
I know we are all trying our best. Despite all the parenting, homeschool, and self help books in circulation, NOBODY is perfect...including me. I feed my kids processed foods, I don't buy organic, and do things others you may disagree with.
You're not alone in trying to figure it out. I'm here with my 4 kids in tow, and I am going to help you wade through it all. I will share tips and tricks to help you manage your home, wrangle your kids with as few tantrums as possible, and I'll even be sharing what I have found to NOT work.
I'm a homeschooling momma, so you will also bear witness to some of the ups and downs as we find our way. And hey, if you're not a homeschooler, don't think I am out of touch. Our big girl is in public school.
Wondering who I am?
I'm Callie. 30 something-year-old lover of books, pajamas, sweet tea, and Dr. Pepper. Alabamian who ended up moving from the South to the Southern Hemisphere...New Zealand to be exact.
You guessed it! That's how I came up with A Little More Southern and the short story behind the name.
I am married to an amazing man who cooks, cleans, and keeps me laughing. What more could a I ask for?
Four little humans call me momma. The Big Girl is 13, The Middle Girl is 7, The Boy is 5, and The Baby is 3. Yes, we were a glutton for punishment and had 3 little doorsteps, but we figured "why not?". It wasn't like we were getting any sleep anyway.
I'm not a stay-at-home mom, but I also don't work full-time. Twice a week I toss on my uniform and head off to work as a nurse on a busy maternity unit.
So there you have it! That's me in a nutshell. I love to chatter away, so feel free to contact me anytime!
