If you’re wondering how to be more efficient as a mom who works from home, this post is for you. It explores the importance of “23 Tips to Being Productive as a Work-From-Home Mom”
To some, this might be the woman who hunts, forages, and grows all her own food. It could be the bad mamba jam who hikes 8-plus miles into the woods, pitches a tent and rocks her babe to sleep under the stars.
And while these insanely impressive women are definitely outdoorsy moms — I don’t believe they’re the only ones.
For me, an outdoorsy mom with a baby is any gal who has young children and loves maintaining an active lifestyle outside. That’s what this post is about.
We planned to get pregnant. I dutifully took my temperature each morning and peed on ovulation sticks each month. And when one line became two, “Can You Fight Postpartum Depression Before Birth? Here Are 5 Ways I Tried.”
Now that Pepper’s here, one of the questions I’m asked most often is, ‘How are you doing it all?’ The answer is, I’m not.
If anyone has mastered the art of cooking, cleaning, baby-rearing, AND running a business on their own – kudos you unicorn. Share your magic. The rest of us everyday new-parent folk are just trying to keep our heads above water — one life hack at a time.

Around here, big is just the way we do things. Garrett and I are big people, with a big baby and a big dog.
A really big dog in fact. A 111-pound Rottweiler with a head that comes up to my waist and a mouth that devours cookies like they never existed. While his bark is loud and his frequent talking can scare most people, Zeus would like nothing more to cuddle. Or play fetch. Or chase our remote control car. In short, we couldn’t have asked for a better family pet.

But as a 6-foot woman, I find them less than enjoyable. Especially because at the end I feel like I need a shower anyway. Perhaps it’s because I was raised a shower baby.
