Blue Eyed Mama's Blog – Family Recipes, Crafts, and Homeschool Ideas

About Me and My MOM Blog

Hi, I’m BEM (Blue Eyed Mama)

I am an, originally reluctant (but loving it now), stay-at-home mom of 3 and step-mom to 1 (2 girls and 2 boys). After living in cities like Chicago, Indianapolis, and the Tampa Bay area, my family and I have settled in rural Indiana. We are a homeschool family, which is rewarding but often difficult, and I also teach small classes online from home. My time is spread thin sometimes, but we make time for movie night and we try to read together, as a family, a couple of nights a week.

mom blogI am an ordinary mom, just like everyone else. Sometimes my kitchen is really dirty (like right now, I can assure you it is a mess), my laundry is often piled up, and sometimes my kids are on my last nerve, but I enjoy having fun with my family… and really can’t see it any other way! My husband is a great partner, but like many, we’ve seen a few ups and downs, however, through some love and hard work, we’ve built a life that we both love and are proud of!

Why Blog?

I never dreamed of being a “blogger”! I started my blog for fun… I like sharing ideas and having ideas shared with me… and that is why I blog. This blog isn’t a perfect “Mom Blog”, my pictures aren’t always perfect, I don’t post as often as others do, and I am not as on-trend as many of the mom bloggers, but this blog is simply where I come to share ideas or experiences, and I hope you find something you like or relate to along the way!

I’d love to hear from you so head over to Facebook or Instagram and follow me (if you’d like), there you can see some of the day-to-day stuff I might not actually blog about. If you love Pinterest, check me out there! I also have an Etsy Shop, it isn’t a full-time business, but worth checking out as the sales go to support our Little Library.

Thanks for stopping by and getting to know a bit more about me. I hope to hear from you, so feel free to comment on any of my pages and if you want to send me a quick line… head here!

BEM + Fam 🙂

PS – I do NOT use AI to write my posts and I will not be doing that. If that means I post at a rate of 1% of every other blogger on the planet… so be it. AI can be a tool for industries but it doesn’t belong in a blog… that is my opinion, but I will not use AI to pump out artificial posts for the sake of doing so. 

PPS – I am an Amazon Affiliate and this means that when I link something to Amazon, there is a chance I will see a commission. These commissions are small… pennies on the $20! If I was a bigger mom blog or spent more time linking products like some do… maybe I’d make more, but alas that isn’t the case, or my top priority blogging.

For more about what an affiliate is and who I choose to promote, head to my Affiliate Page.

Either way, know that I strive to be authentic and only suggest things I truly believe in and use.
