I have loved writing for… ever, really. So, I figured why not start putting that passion along with everyday life into a little something we all know as a blog. Now, I never in a million years would have thought I would start one of these things, but you know, life happens. You get married, have children, sit at the house covered in spit-up all day and magically start to think people might care to read about your life… That’s what stay-at-home moms do, right?! So, let’s get this party started, shall we?
A little intro:
My name is Paige, I am currently 27-years-old, I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children: Kyson “Kye” (age 3) and Zoe James (3 weeks/fresh out the womb). I live in the same town in East Texas that I was born and raised in and just recently went from being a working mom to a stay-at-home-mom (along with helping my husband with his construction company because let’s face it – I love the man and all, but when it comes to paperwork he is about as organized as a T.J.Maxx sale rack.)
… Now all that sounds so sweet and basic, huh? Well, that’s why I REALLY wanted to start this blog. Everyone sees ^ THAT^ on Facebook and Instagram, but on here, Paige wants to get REAL. (Like the real fact that I just had to walk away from this laptop and change a poopy diaper. Or the real fact that before I started typing this I devoured a sh*t ton of chocolate chip cookies so my toddler won’t try to eat them all when he gets home from preschool. OR that while I was eating those cookies I was simultaneously bawling my eyes out watching last nights episode of American Idol.) I want this blog to not be the highlight reel we see from everyone on social media, but the REAL reel: The good, the bad, the gross, the anxiety, the laughs, the tears, the embarrassing, and every “Paige” in between (see what I did there? Paige… page. Yeah.)
A few more little facts before we jump into this: I love Jesus, but I cuss a little (okay, A LOT). I live off caffeine, and just recently added red wine to that list (two kids will do that to ya. Also, I’m 98% positive that everyone with more than two kids has to be an undercover alcoholic). And I say “y’all” even more than I cuss. Brace yourselves for this southern mess of a mama blog, y’all. (See, I told you.)
Stay tuned 😉
