What if this holiday season we as a society order from small business's. What if we stop buying everything from this large commercial stores that don't even know you are there? A small business owner does the best they can, they love their products and they want to build relationships with you. They don't want you just to be an order, they truly want to become friends with you.
As you all know, I am a independent consultant for Usborne Books. I love this company and when I am showing you the books we offer I am not just selling to you. I want to build a relationship with you. I want to find out what your family likes, what their interests are and which books would truly be the best bet for you. When you host a party for me, I am rooting for you. I want you to earn free books. Every time you get closer to a goal, I am smiling from ear to ear because I can't wait to see what book you chose for your family. As a mother, I want your input. I want to hear which books your kids love because well my daughter may love them too. My daughter is on the go all the time but when she sees a book, she stops and opens it. She feels each page and you can see the excitement in her face. I want you to share with me when your kids loves a book this much.
I love books, I can lost in them for hours on end because I can become anyone I chose to, and I can learn while doing so.
This Holiday season instead of buying a purse while you are out and about, call up that friend who sells 31. The Mom you bought a It's work wrap from you just helped her buy diapers for her child. The grandmother who sells Mary-kay, you are helping her provide for the grandkids that are in her care. It is so important that we become united and help others. We don't know each other's story but we can become a part of each other's future and success. Let's help each other out and support small business's.
I love Usborne books, I love the quality, their affordability. I love that you can create a wishlist and share it with family members.
I am simply sharing my site in case you are interested. I would love to host a party with you if you are interested.
Let me help you with you Christmas shopping this year! May God bless you!
I am one of those people who have always seemed to search for what they are supposed to do in life.
I have wanted to be an actress, a drama teacher, a firefighter and a few other things. I guess I have always been one of those people who wanted to try a little bit of everything. Being a firefighter was adventurous, it gave me a thrill but it was also one of the scariest things I have ever done. I admit, there have been times I have thought about trying to be a firefighter again but I am pretty sure my health issues won't allow me this.
With that being said, what if I was just a stay at home mom. Would that be enough? Would that make my life worth while? I am still trying to figure it all out. Now that I have a little person who looks up to me, I want to be all that I can be. Besides taking care of my little girl I also blog, coupon, enter giveaways and I am a Usborne Consultant. I also do a lot of random things online. Why? I am simply trying to do the best I can.
What if my little girl grows up and decides she just wants to be a mom? Would that be okay? Yes, it would. Being a mom is a hard job or being a dad. I give props to moms and dads of all kinds. Those that work all day and come home and have a million things to do, I truly don't know how you do it. Those mom's that stay home all day and have little to no social interaction because you don't have mommy friends. I understand. I am right here with you on this path. Sometimes, it is frustrating and you want to pull your hair out, you want to have a glass of wine and a long relaxing bath. If you are like me you have a high spirited child. One that needs attention constantly, and wants to be held and not be to far from mommy, and that is okay. Enjoy it, even when you feel like crying because you can't shower and you don't remember the last time you had a haircut or went to the dentist.
Enjoy every moment because time flies and soon your child won't be searching for you anymore, they will not want to be held and comforted by you, they will have moved on to a different part of their life. While they have moved on, you may not. You will miss those days. You will long for when you baby cried for you and wanted you to rock him or her. You will stare at pictures on the wall, you will pick up those newborn clothes and think back to when they fit in one arm.
As a stay at home mom, I get to see those little moments that some don't. When my child took her first step, said her first word, or when she flings food everywhere. I get to be there to see the look on her face when she discovers something new. I get to sing and dance with her. I have this little girl that follows me around all day seeing what I am doing.
So yes, if you are a stay at home mom, while you may miss the interaction and money from a job I want you to know that you are doing enough. You are enough. Your child is looking up to you and sees how much you are doing for them, even when no one else does. So don't give up but know that it is okay to want a few moments to yourself sometime. Know that you are the best teacher and role model your child will have as a parent.
All my love
Megan, a stay home mom who wants to try new products and let you know what I think of them!
