A friend of mine recently received a gift from her mom. A snow globe; which has been a tradition they’ve shared for years. It’s something she has cherished and looks forward to. She has a whole cabinet filled with these tokens of love. The night she brought the newest addition of her collection home she… Read more
Behind every historical victory of women’s rights is an incredible woman who saw the need for change. Behind every incredible woman who changed the world, stood strong grounded parents who helped nurture her fire. Whether by positive influence or negative reselance, her parents molded her into who she became. As I think of myself, I… Read more
I’m sure many have seen the social media then and now trend circling. If somehow you haven’t, which I highly doubt, people are asked to post a photo from 2009; then a side by side with 2019. Ten years, a whole decade, how have you changed? Is your family different? Do you look drastically different,… Read more
Okay… Full Disclosure. Ban was a strong word, they suspended me. Why? For bullying… No you didn’t misread that. Me, the chick (pun intended) who has BE NICE stickers and lanyards all over the place. Suspended for bullying. Let’s back up. Before my family and I moved we had chickens. So naturally, in the social… Read more
Today, I received a text from my sons 1st grade teacher. “Jack was wondering if you could bring a change of underwear? He didn’t quite make it but his pants are fine.” I rolled my eyes. Not because he dribbled some in his underwear on the way to the restroom. It’s because being a mom… Read more
Behind Batman Boogers & Bows
Let’s get the formalities out of the way. I’m the girl behind the blog, Chelsea. I wish I had some grand story to tell you about who I am and why you should be here. In truth, I don’t. The fact is I’m just like you. Just a person trying to not completely get lost in life as I know it.
I’m 10+ years deep in marriage to a firefighter whom I am insanely proud of. Mom to arguably three of the most fantastically amazing kids, who ironically; argue with me… a lot.
Sometime I fail. We are talking goes down in a fiery ball of molten lava, fail. And sometimes I have it all together like a tennis mom on Prozac and Xanax.
Batman Boogers & Bows came about because while I love being able to stay home with my kids, It’s not the only thing that I am. I was a working mom for a few years after my oldest was born, after my second, it just wasn’t feasible anymore. Our family was struggling between my schedule (and possibly not the right fit, but that’s another story, for another time) and my husbands schedule. We knew a change needed to happen. But where does that leave me? A mom, yes.. what about the girl who was so many things in addition to a mom and wife. So here I am. Putting ALL the extras in text.
These are the thoughts and stories of me. Sometimes I laugh. Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I’m so insanely embarrassed the only thing I can think to do is write it down and hope someone can laugh with me. Or at me… that’s a thing too.
