Oh, hey there, mama! I'm Sarah Knox, the voice behind momming is hard.
I'm a mom of 2 toddlers and have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 7 years. I started momming is hard when I was in the midst of postpartum depression after my second pregnancy. I needed an outlet to express myself and share openly and honestly about my experience and try to encourage others along the way. After a while, I kept receiving emails from women all over the world sharing their struggles with me too. I keep writing for my strangerfriends across the country and world who need to know that we're all in this messy life of motherhood together.
The internet is already full of beautiful perfect people with beautiful perfect families and beautiful perfect pinterest-worthy crafts.
So, if you are looking for paleo recipes, extravagant birthday parties, mason jar and pallet wood crafts (don't even get me started on that crap), perfection, 6-pack abs, tips on how to ALWAYS have a clean home, mommy shaming, scrapbooking tips or weird-ass/"creative" recipes, look elsewhere.
This is where you'll find things like messes, mistakes, encouragement, freedom from perfection, honest thoughts on being a mom of toddlers while growing a business, and just basic real life stuff.
Who am I and why should you care?
Haha! You shouldn't care and I'm flattered that you cared enough to click the "about" tab at the top of the page.
Like I said before, I'm a mom of 2 kids who are 15 months apart. I have a business as a fundraising auctioneer where I work with nonprofits on their galas and help them raise all of the monies. It's a great gig because I get to do meaningful work while working at home during the day so I can be with my kids. It's a struggle to juggle it all, and I so do not have it figured out. This shiz is hard. I wan't you to know that in the world of #mombosses that no one (or at least me) has it as together as our instagram accounts may suggest.
In case you are feeling like some sort of failure today, I'm here to tell you that you aren't a failure. You are completely normal. Whatever your struggle, chances are there are many other moms who have the same struggle but just haven't shared it yet.
