I have been working hard behind the scenes over here at Valley Stream Mom, folks. I kid you not. I hope you’re following me on all of my social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Instagram, (not a type) Twitter, and YouTube to keep up. It’s been tough lately because the kids are keeping me on the go!
What are the kids doing these days?
My daughter is back to playing floor hockey this season at school along with viola, advanced choir and she’s also writing for the school newspaper. She was just invited to perform for NYSSMA and had two of her articles published in the newspaper. One made the front page! Soccer season starts this month and she has been taking lessons at Goldfish Swim School where she trains in their swim team program.
In addition to an already busy life for her, we now have to find a viola teacher to help her learn her piece for NYSSMA. Where will we find the time to practice is beyond me!
My son (and daughter) has been taking up Tae Kwon Do at Tae Kwon V Academy here in Valley Stream where he will be testing for his orange belt this week and my daughter tests for her yellow belt. He loves it and I never hear him complain about getting dressed to go. Unless he’s in the middle of watching Pokemon or something like that. He too is taking swim lessons at Goldfish Swim School where he has already been promoted within the first three weeks of lessons! He’ll be starting baseball next month where my husband will be coaching.
Wait….does that automatically make me the team mom?
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I recently turned 45 last week. For the first time in awhile, I actually wanted to celebrate more than usual. My family treated me to dinner at George Martin in Rockville Centre which is one of our favorite restaurants. I love the cocktails and the skirt steak! A few days later, I met some friends for drinks and appetizers at Truffles in Valley Stream allowing me to hang out a little more and hear what these fabulous ladies have been up to.
You’re probably wondering how in the world I managed to do this, but last weekend the kids and I drove about an hour and a half to Bridgeport, CT where we spent the night with some friends at the Discovery Museum. The kids had a great time and believe it or not despite the humming of the lights that were on all night, I made it through the night. My air mattress turned on me and deflated during the night. Time to find a new one!
Last, I’ve been super busy with creating a new business where I support mothers who has chosen to stay home with their kids. While my primary focus was to service these mothers with strategies I have learned along the years as a SAHM, I recently realized that moms who work from/outside home also need support. I learned this after meeting with my friends for my birthday. So, at their request, I will also develop some strategies to help keep them stress free.
I’m truly excited about what’s going on in my life right now. I don’t think I’ve ever been as focused as I am now. I’m still working on being organized better, but I’m on my way. I’m trying my best to work smarter, not harder which is why you don’t see me posting as much on here, but the quality of content is much better, don’t you think?
