Hi, I’m Chantal, the Secular Homemaker. I write this page in between looking after my kids, keeping my home, spending time with my family, and drinking obscene amounts of coffee.
I am a lazy, but enthusiastic, mom
I fancy myself a lazy mom, a crappy housekeeper, and a mediocre cook, but I do it all with enthusiasm which I believe makes me uniquely qualified to dispense my wisdom to the masses via this blog. I came to motherhood somewhat later in life (I had my first at 32) which also helps to keep me a little more level-headed than some and gives me the ability to laugh off more of the difficult stuff that parenting entails.
OK, so I’m not strictly a stay at home mom, technically speaking
When I am not writing and looking after the needs of my family I have a very part-time job at a deli where I get to slice meat, make desserts and sandwiches, and, most importantly, talk to grown ups. I imagine at the end of my shift my coworkers feel the much like I do after spending an entire day with a 3-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl who never stop talking. There is a reason I stay awake and sit alone in the dark after everyone else has gone to bed and it isn’t because I’m not tired.
Look for me on Goodreads, I promise to update it soon
I also love reading and back in the olden days before I was a mom I was a manager at a bookstore and had amassed quite the collection of books. These days I’m focusing on reading self-help, motivational, business, and parenting books with a little light smut on the side. A girl’s got to be entertained and informed after all.
And that’s about all there is to me right now.
I am continuing to work on my writing and developing my voice so at some point I may update this page. There’s a good chance I won’t though.
Thanks for stopping by and having a read.
