TMC welcomes Rachel, author of the blog Mommy Needs a Vacation. I think I first found Rachel on Twitter and she began blogging right around the time that TMC launched. I adore Rachel because she tells it like it is. She is so real and she knows exactly how difficult this motherhood gig can be and isn’t afraid to talk about it! She is a total Theta Mom and I know each and every one of you will love her. Moreover, she is sassy and hil-ar-ious! Reading her blog will bring a smile to your face and be sure to follow her on Twitter. She is one of my favorite tweeps! Here is how she describes her blog in her own words:
“Hi, my name is Rachel and I am addicted to Twitter. Oh wait, that is for another meeting…I am a mom and YES I need a vacation. Why you ask? Because parenting is hard. Because parenting is a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week JOB. Because with this job, I don’t build up vacation days to use at a later date. I have come to realize that the **put your feet up with a fruity cocktail vacation** is rare (and pricey) so I try my best to find small moments of time for just myself.
I started blogging back in March of this year to do something for myself and also to meet other amazing ladies out there who know what my day to day is like. I felt like I needed a little, “Oh I SO KNOW what you are talking about!” I also felt that after having two kids of mine own, I had opinions to share about motherhood. I wanted to share my experiences and let other moms know that it is okay to lose your temper, have a glass of wine at 5 o’clock (or sometimes earlier), feed your kids chicken nuggets every day and not shower. I wanted to let other moms know that it is okay to feel like you need a vacation from parenting.
I love writing, I love taking pictures and I love being funny. Thinking you are funny and making yourself laugh is always a good thing. I also like talking…like a lot, which is why I started vlogging too! I am so excited for other Theta Mom’s to come visit me, check out what I have to say, share a laugh with me and complain about needing a vacation along with me.
And until we all get our much deserved vacations, we are all just TAKING. IT. ONE. DAY. AT. A. TIME….preferably with a glass of wine (or two) or course.”
