With starting my blog completely from scratch, I’m a little lost on where to begin story wise. I have a lot to talk about but I’m unsure of where I should start.
I know there’s no right or wrong answer here but I figured starting off with a little about me would be less intimidating and maybe appropriate.
So here’s my “you’ve been warned” before I just throw you into all my crazy stories and opinions.
Who is Mommin With Coffee?
Obviously, I’m just a mom who drinks a lot of coffee lol.
On a personal level, I’m Lauren and I’m in my late 20s. I have four kids – 9, 5, 2, and one still baking for a few more weeks. Being a mother is 99% of my identity at the moment.
My partner and I began our longgg relationship when I was only 12 years old. We’ve grown up together. We’ve loved hard and we’ve hated each other. Our relationship is far from perfect but it’s ours.
I’m a very laid back person and I have very chill views. I can get along with almost anyone. Any vibe except bitchy attitude sits well with me pretty much. I enjoy learning about different cultures and seeing the world from different points of view.
I believe we were all put here as unique equals, that the Earth heals us, I believe in home schooling, home birthing, and not checking the mainstream morning news.
You could say I’m very much in my own world, aka own way of thinking, and out of the matrix, I mean mainstream norm.
But I wasn’t always this way.
I used to get notifications from my local news station, I used to have hospital births with every intervention they decided to throw at me. I enrolled my oldest in public school right away because that’s what everyone does.
I used to people please and do everything the “right way” aka the way everyone told me to.
But I’m here to begin sharing allllll of that. I want to share my journey of healing into adulthood and how that changed my views drastically. I’m here to share how becoming a mom changed my point of view on things. I’m just here to talk about life and find my people man.
You might not always agree with me, but at least it’ll get you thinking about your own beliefs and whether or not they’re right for you.
Enough of the deep talk for now
Other than being a big hippie mom, I’m a pretty basic bitch. I like to stay home, water my plants, cook good food, and hang out with my family. I cuss a lot, I drink a lot of coffee, I have trouble drinking enough water, and I’m a canna mom, not a wine mom.
We also learn at home. Meaning my kids don’t leave home for full time career in the public school system anymore. I also don’t follow a public school curriculum or any curriculum for that matter. We have a very different style of learning, preparing, and living life.
We also work from home and do UberEats so it makes for a lot of family time.
I won’t lie and say it’s easy, because I lose my shit often, but it’s the life I’ve always wanted and I’m so grateful for it.
I’m here to remind you that life isn’t perfect, but nothing truly is. We’re meant to have ups and downs, growing pains, tears and happiness, grief and love.
All of these things make us who we are and they’re a part of our individual journeys.
Let’s just try to make sense of it all and navigate our ways together.
