Hello and welcome to my little neck of the woods!
I’m Cathy and I’m the mom behind Live.Life.Mom. I have 2 wonderful boys – Little J (2 years old) and Little N (6 months old). So with two kids very close in age, you can imagine that life can get crazy around here.
To save our sanity, hubby and I are always trying to find ways to simplify our lives, and this is what this blog is all about. I want to share with you the tips and tricks that we use to navigate our family life.
As opposed to a lot of bloggers out there, I maintain this blog on the side of my full time job as a public servant in our Nation’s capital. I’ve always been the creative type and never thought I’d end up behind a desk – working for the government, no less. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job! But this blog is a great way for me to find balance between work, my life as a mom, and letting my creative juices flow.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
- I’m originally from Montreal, but permanently moved to the Outaouais region after I met my (now) husband.
- I’m half Lebanese, half Egyptian
- I was part of the Scouting movement for 13 years of my life
- I’m an organization freak. I make lists for EVERYTHING – really can’t live without them
- I LOVE being a mom. Granted it can get crazy sometimes, but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
WHAT YOU’LL FIND ON THIS BLOG
Travelling with kids
My husband and I love travelling and having kids isn’t stopping us from going places. Whether it be a simple trip to the restaurant (which can be daunting for some) or hopping on a plane, we try to be as prepared as we possibly can be. Also, with my family still in Montreal and hubby’s family spread out here and there, road-tripping is a regular occurrence in our household. This section explores the different ways that we travel with our kids.
Kids and Parenting
We live a pretty busy life at home. In this section, I share with you the different ways that we interact as a family, from activities we do with our kids to Christmas traditions.
House and Home
My husband’s a clean freak, and I’m an organization nut. The combination of the two means that we make sure that having kids doesn’t stop us from getting things done around the house. Here I share with you the variety of ways that we are able to maintain order in our home.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and I hope you’ll find inspiration here!
