Hi! I’m Raquel. I am a 24 year old wife and mother of 2 (although some days I’ll say my husband qualifies as number 3). I am a full time college student by night, and stay at home mom by day. Quite a handful for someone so young, right? You may find yourself asking why I wanted to write a blog and, more importantly, why you should keep up with it. I’ll try to explain as best I can.
When I became a mom naturally so much of my life changed but I was, for the most part, the same person with the same interests as before. Still, I slowly lost friends. They assumed that somehow becoming a mom meant that I wouldn’t understand inside jokes anymore, that I wouldn’t enjoy our lunch dates or girls nights, that I didn’t want to participate in our group chats… Somehow, becoming a mother made me uncool. I eventually joined a mommy group. While I have gained so much advice and insight from them and enjoy being a part of it, I am one of the youngest moms of 70+ members. Here’s where the blogging part comes in.
I can’t do what I want and when I want like others my age who don’t have children. But I have not obtained a degree, become set in my career and lived life like older moms have. I fall somewhere in the middle. I have yet to find a blog that I can fully relate to. This morning I woke up and decided to create it. I am The Cool Mom, welcome to my blog.
