Hi, I’m Ashley!
I am the mastermind behind The Confessions of a Working Mum!
I started this blog to help cope with going back to work after I had my daughter, but over the years it has turned into so much more! It’s my safe place. A place where I can let loose, help deal with my anxiety or just share my goofy life with you all.
New Posts come out every week:
Monday is all about Beauty
Thursday you will read about wellness
& Saturday… Saturdays are when you can read
about my confessions!
(**sorry if I miss one…or two I’m a busy Mama)
A bit about me!
I was born and raised on Vancouver Island. I wasn’t sure I would ever be a Mum, that is until I met my wonderful, loving husband. We live in Victoria, BC and here is where we started to build our life, where we got married and now where we raise our family. What can I say, he brought the traditional out in me.
We became pregnant while on our honeymoon in Europe, and 9 months later we had a beautiful daughter. I went back to work and while I loved my job, it was much harder than I ever imagined it could be. We became pregnant for a second time with our handsome son. The tough choice was made and I became a stay at home Mum in 2016.
Though I technically don’t ‘work’, I still feel the name of my blog ‘The Confessions of a Working Mum’ is still very fitting. I don’t bring home a traditional paycheque, I get paid in hugs, kisses & laughter. Bonus are sleeping through the night and having potty trained kids. I still work, in fact, I have never worked this hard in my entire life. Raising children is no walk in the park, but it is the best thing I have ever done.
I am grateful that I am able to be a stay at home Mum. I am able to chase my dreams and make them a reality, showing my kids that anything is possible!
The next chapter of my life is unfolding before me and I am excited and nervous all at the same time.
