The title of this blog is MsFIRE Mama. It’s deliberate. When I first started fantasizing about what my life would look like financially free, the focus was on travel. When I became a mother, a lot of things came to the surface that I expected, and then some that I didn’t. I expected to struggle with work-life balance and I didn’t expect that figuring out what kind of mom I wanted to be would be difficult to pinpoint.
