COMING SOON…MY BOOK!!
THE NON-COMPETE SPORT
WHO’S IN YOUR HUDDLE?
Motherhood myths- debunked by MOTHERHOOD: THE NON-COMPETE SPORT
perfect moms are everywhere, why can’t i be one?
In my book, we discuss how NO ONE is perfect. I will fully admit, I’m probably a C, maybe C+ mom. Frankly, there are days I get an A for my motherhood effort, creativity, and patience. On the contrary, there are days I get an F. Motherhood is a marathon, not a sprint. Therefore, calm down. The beauty in a bad day, you have tomorrow to re-start and try again. In addition, every mom is fighting her own battles we know nothing about. Perfection is an illusion.
I don’t need a HUDDLE, i can do this on my own
BORING!!!! Maybe you can you superhero you…. but why? On the contrary, isn’t it WAY more fun to do this life with others? The trick is finding the right huddle. Moreover, surrounding yourself with supportive moms provides not only help with your children but also sanity conversations for YOU. In Motherhood: The Non-Compete Sport, we dive into this concept WAY more. Trust me though, you need teammates.
i can’t talk about my shortcomings
Honestly, if you surround yourself with the right people, yes you can. You likely do not parent the exact same way. Even then, this doesn’t mean you can’t talk about the things you struggle with as a mother, wife, all of it. Who knows? You may be surprised on just how much in common your fears and anxieties are. Therefore, give it a try. If they judge, move on. Who needs negativity in their life? Not you Momma!

Motherhood is wonderful and packed with pure moments of joy. Conversely, it also just flat out sucks sometimes since we’re being honest here. Kids are an amazing anomaly bringing a roller coaster of emotions not only within themselves, but within the parents’ emotions too. For instance, I texted my husband the other day after an argument with my 10-year-old, “Parenting is hard AF.” Yep. We are making decisions which impact these tiny humans and it’s a lot of responsibility! In addition, if you read this and are judging me, might I suggest you read Motherhood: The Non-Compete Sport?
NON-COMPETE- THE LIFE BALANCE
Even with all the emotional baggage and roller coaster you jumped on, you can survive motherhood and thrive in all the other areas of your life you want to be successful. I know, you are thinking, how is that possible Heather? First, you must immerse yourself in a supportive team. Motherhood is not and should not be competitive. Furthermore, we need to huddle up and figure this out TOGETHER.
This book is designed to give you my story. Sharing examples of ways the women of my team have become those I huddle with when I need advice, a sanity check, or just plain old fun. Additionally, I will provide tips and tricks to help you hone in on your best teammates. Finding your huddle is so incredibly important. I have always had amazing women surrounding me. As I became a mom, I found myself once again in another network of awesome women who were also moms. Sitting back in this realization, I asked myself the questions, “why?” and “how did I do this again?”
In an ideal world, my book helps women to feel part of a community and a whole lot less alone in the craziness of motherhood. Consequently, all moms are part of a giant The Mom Huddle whether they realize it or not. It’s called the ALL MOM HUDDLE. By the way, we all have self-doubt and question this title! Motherhood is chaotic, fun, silly, amazingly frustrating, sad, thought provoking, and everything in between. It’s not for the faint of heart and shouldn’t be managed alone. I will keep you updated on the progress of my book and I hope enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed the process.
