Parkland Mommy!

Parkland Mommy is a place for women and men who have children in various generations (also those who don’t) and working through the complexity of understanding and managing expectations while keeping your cool. Things get pretty interesting when you’re trying to parent a 26 year old and 4 year old at the same time. This blog is going to be a place to lay everything on the table the good, the bad and the hilariously funny.


Welcome to Parkland Mommy!

Things get pretty interesting when you’re trying to be supportive of a 27 year old daughter who is an athlete and entrepreneur and a 5 year old  son at the same time. I am new to blogging and working through the maze and all of the areas surrounding this experience. This blog will cover my recent change from having a 26 year career as an executive with a company to making the big decision to be a stay at home mom. Truth be told, if it was up to my husband I would have resigned when I found out I was pregnant in 2013.

After working for over 26 years with the company I never expected to resign and had all expectation of continuing on to the next level in my career. You know what happens when you make plans for your career that does not take into consideration being a mom to a 4 year old at my age and realizing that you are missing out on some of the most memorable moments of his development. I am enjoying every moment and I have to say being a stay at home mom is harder than being senior director to an operational team. What you can proactively plan for in the career world in some cases cannot be done with a 5 year old. I am having fun and making memories but the exhaustion is real and the lack of sleep is overwhelming.

On this site you will find a variety of topics from parenting experiences, travel, lifestyle and other content to inspire and teach. This blog accepts a variety of sponsorship, free products, and other considerations
