Hi! I’m Ang – welcome to my site, and thank you for stopping by! I’m a mother, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend, attempting to do it all – because, well, I want to. Juggling Act Mama is a lifestyle blog for busy moms that want to do it all, like me!
People have joked that I’m not happy unless I’ve got a hundred things up in the air, all at once, and I suppose I can’t deny it! ( Hence, the name of my blog, Juggling Acts!) I’m also a writer, crafter, scrapbooker, amateur photographer and Pinterest addict. Long before Pinterest, I developed an addictions to books, snapping memories of my kids, and chocolate desserts… or chocolate anything…or…ok, just sweets in general – don’t judge me!
I love being creative whether it be with food or paper or games with the kids. I don’t have a special space for crafting, and I don’t have a huge kitchen for cooking. I’m just a regular mom with crackers on the floor, toys on the sideboard, and always a load of laundry that needs to be washed, dried, or folded. Or all three.
I love making delicious and easy recipes for my family – and am always trying to sneak fruits and veggies into my baked goods! Livi is a fantastic eater (so far, knock on wood!), she tries everything. Ethan has a list of approved food items, and although it is growing, slowly, it’s still a short list. Mealtime is a constant battle of trying to get Ethan to eat what we’re having, and making sure Livi hasn’t run out of food. They are the most amazing (and messiest) things we’ve ever created!
It’s so fun to come up with simple and fun projects for the kids, even when Livi’s involvement is limited to her eating whatever materials we’re working with… I think it’s important to have one-on-one time with them on things that really suit their interests, so sometimes Ethan and I do a craft together, while Livi naps. And later, we do more age-appropriate things with Liv. And whenever I need some Mumma-time, I do my own creative thing after they are safely tucked in at night !
I love hearing from you and read each and every comment, so please do, or email me, and I will get back to you. Oh, and one more thing – I’m so glad you’re here!
