We became familiar faces – a regular wave across the school parking lot, a smile at gymnastic classes, an exchange of mom life craziness stories at the grocery store. The fact that we both like walnuts in our oatmeal really solidified our friendship. We are Ivana and Nadia, 2 typical moms. Typical in the sense that we are super busy, tired and grateful, but also overwhelmed. We have both experienced the struggle of managing life and family as working moms. Just ask any mom and she will say the same, us moms need to stick together!
We have had some good laughs about the topics we google as moms. Is it ok that they ate dirt? Is an entire bag of Doritos ok for a 3 year old? How do I act like a teacher for homeschooling? We have also spent many late nights scouring the internet for ideas to make meal times quicker and tastier, and family activities more fun, meaningful and manageable.
So we have spent some time collecting our valuable mom hacks and now we are happy to share them with you. We hope that our meal tips and activity suggestions will help you just as much as they have helped us and our current mom friends.
When we came up with the name This Mom is on Fire (yes thank you Alicia Keys!), we felt that when moms have a plan, an idea from a fellow mom, different options to try – the day runs a little smoother. Not perfect but maybe gives us a little mom calm! The day is more organized and the kids like knowing what they are eating and what they are doing before the day starts…and suddenly your streak begins, and this ‘Mom is on ‘fire’
