Absolute Megan

by Megan

Megan from Absolute Mommy is not only one of my featured sponsors this month, but she’s also one of my favorite bloggers! I read her blog everyday, and I think you should too. She thinks you should too, and here’s why!

I’m very excited to be sharing Megan’s space today for many reasons.  Mostly because my name is Megan too…. Haven’t met me?  Well I’m Megan from Absolute Mommy.

Have we met?  No?  Well let me tell you a little about me.  I started blogging almost two years ago.  I write about whatever my heart desires, but mostly about fumbling and stumbling through motherhood.  My motto is “I wasn’t built for motherhood.  It built me.  It’s a work in progress”.

You will find that I blog about my marriage to this guy:

All taken at a super classy wedding. Obviously.

I also blog about these cuties, and take an insane amount of photos of them to post to Instagram.  So if you’d like to follow me on Instagram, this is your warning.

Miss Mac
Miss Caitlin, my kindergartner!

I have been known to post crafty stuff, but my tutorials always look like the photography from an 80s “b” movie.  I sometimes post a recipe or two and those are equally as easy, because if it’s more than 5 steps, mama don’t bother. To give you an idea of what happens at Absolute Mommy, here are some examples:

********
Reason I should get Mother of the Year
Oreos for breakfast.
Typical on mornings where Twitter and Pinterest are far more interesting than Ming Ming and the damn phone that won’t stop ringing. For the love of God answer that phone!!! Oreos for breakfast when I’m trying to cook an actual breakfast and my two year old is literally trying to crawl up my body like a rat. Oreos for breakfast when I just need to wash my hair so the other moms at the gymnastics class think I’m well groomed and somewhat put together. Oreos for breakfast when I’m out of peanut butter cups.
********
The eve of something big
Five years ago, I didn’t know this little person named Caitlin. Who would challenge every fiber of my being from the moment she arrived. I didn’t know that she would have my hair and my eyes, but daddy’s personality. That she would hate to sleep, but love to be held. Constantly. I didn’t know that she would challenge every rule of potty training, challenge every definition of motherhood, challenge every idea I had about love.
I had no idea that she would change me into a better person. She would teach me everything I needed to know about being a mom. That she would demand nothing more from me than love. Just love.
********

If you can’t already tell, I love to write, and my blog is the best way to do that.  But my blog was born of something else.  I needed to redefine myself as a mom and as a person.  Absolute Mommy is giving me a place to take a chance on my writing and a chance on me.  It’s my place to be myself.  Sometimes funny and sarcastic, sometimes too open and honest.  For a little more of Absolute Mommy visit these posts:

– about my bout of PPD

– where I talk about what all mamas need

Wore. Confidence
– getting my groove back
Two must be terrible
– a new look at the terrible twos
You can also follow me on Twitter or on Facebook. Although I must confess, I’m having a love affair with Twitter behind Facebook’s back. Sorry Facebook, but you’ve changed…

A big thanks to Megan for being so awesome and inviting me to hang out on her blog.  I really appreciate all her blog love.  Did you know that she leaves the best comments?  Well she does!  Thanks to you guys, her readers, for indulging me in one of my favorite vices…. Talking about my blog.  It’s totally gross, but I can’t help myself!

Thanks, Megan, for being on my blog today! We also co-host the A Look Back link-up, on the first of every month, so be sure to check that out. November 1st is 1989!
