Hello there, I'm Janice - Blogger, author, and mother.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I created Mommy 20 Years Apart to help super moms adjust to the ups and downs in 2 different worlds of parenting. We can also work together to find creative ways to create multiple streams of income.
All moms are super moms - and every day comes with new adjustments.
I am mom of 2 beautiful children, who are 20 years apart.
My oldest is the beautiful and fashionable Alexia, who is 22-years-old.
And my youngest is the joyous and full of life little Michael Jr., who's 2-years-old and is still nursing.
Mommy 20 Years Apart is a community and safe zone to support moms who are adjusting to children who are in “2 different worlds.”
Adjusting in two different worlds as a mom can mean many different things.
If you have a boy and a girl, adjusting to each child’s world is necessary.
If you have a new born baby and a toddler, adjusting is necessary.
If you are having to nurse one child longer than the other, that is adjusting to 2 different worlds.
Currently, I am nursing my 2 year old and he doesn’t want to wean any time soon, even though I've been trying since he was 18-months old.
Oh, and what about those “teenagers?” Seems like those teenage years are the most trying and difficult years for many moms. Guess what mom, adjusting to the teenage years are necessary.
Many parents are having to adjust to a child with special needs. You are welcome here.
My daughter was classified and diagnosed at 2.5-years-old as cognitive impaired - multiple disabled.
It was hard and I cried many tears. But, I needed to adjust so that I could better meet her needs.
Additionally, from time to time I would visit various mom blogs and I noticed their children looked nothing like my little guy.
Their kids were always clean, no messes, rooms were always perfect, etc.
My baby is always messy. Putting stuff in his mouth, eating off the floor, pulling books off the book shelf, writing on sheets, and being a little scientist.
Therefore, in addition to the adjustment we need to make as moms, I wanted to blog and share what I call “honest” moms.
Moms who are not afraid to talk about the mess, imperfections, and poop on the floor and tub.
The ice cream he smeared all over the couch, and not wanting to wear a diaper all day.
Let’s talk about "OMG, he took his diaper off and pooped on my brand new sheets!"
Let’s talk about and support each other through those ups and downs.
Running to the doctor, infections, questionable rashes and so on.
Isn't that what parenting is all about?
The Joys of Parenting
Parenting brings so much joy, happiness, love, affection, and gratitude.
These past 2 years have been my happiest and most joyful years of my entire life.
My little guy, along with my daughter, makes me smile every day.
I absolutely love them both. Being a mom the second time around, especially because this time I was prepared to be a mom, is the greatest.
So, I have finally decided to share with the world my experiences and stories with the world. And hope for this to be a safe place for others moms to do the same.
I hope that you'll find a community of support here, to help you adjust to whatever world you're currently in.
