Friends, as I welcome you to this blog, I want you to know that I am NOT a perfect mom. Before I tell you what it means to mom to the fullest, I want to say that sometimes my hair is a mess, I can’t figure out how to parallel park, and I spend a lot of time literally chasing my very active children. There’s always so much to do, and usually very little time. It can get tricky but over the years, I’ve found a very special secret.
Motherhood, at its fullest
Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Candace Ann.
In addition to raising my three children, I’m also a freelance writer. My days require planning, intention, and strategic correspondences. Typically, nap time is when everything related to my business is conducted. Since family and graceful parenting are my top priorities, it took me a little while before I understood how to find the balance. Once I learned to organize my day, I began to make a lot of traction. I grew my client list and still enjoyed all of the best things about being a mom.
About the term, Fullest MOM :
- Yes, my hands are “full” but they are still capable.
- Fullness and abundance coincide.
When your hands are full, it’s the best time to live your life to the fullest.
Being a mom of a large family
While out in public, I have encountered both sides of the extreme. For example, there are people that say nice things or help open the door. Then, there are those that are just plain rude. Shocking as it is, I have personally found that, as the number of children with me increased, the number of nice people decreased. So weird. Larger families seem to get the brunt of opinions these days.
It didn’t matter if I was dressed in my business attire or chilling in my yoga pants. The first thing people always muttered was, “You have your hands full.” No one bothered to see who I was inside. No one cared to figure out my situation.
Celebrate being a mother
All in all, my past experiences prompted me to create a place where moms are celebrated. Where we can enjoy parenting for what it’s worth.
By using this site’s mission statement, I plan to create posts that are focused on family, productivity, happiness, and balance. Check out some popular links:
Let’s mom to the fullest, together
As we allow ourselves to grow, we also learn to mom to the fullest. My aim is to provide new inspiration, day by day, post by post, to change the thoughts about motherhood.
Come back often to see the journey. Enjoy some coffee while you read and keep handy an occasional tissue. Lastly, don’t forget to sign up for the Fullest Mom Newsletter here.
