Paige McEachren grew up in a VERY small town in Newfoundland. After University she came to the big city of Montreal to work and soon realized her love for life. Culture, entertainment, sporting events, travel, experiencing different foods, meeting new people, she loved it all and wanted to experience everything. She experienced life to the fullest while she worked as a Corporate Communications Manager and traveled the world, fell in love and married the man she never knew she was looking for.
Thinking life would settle down they welcomed baby 1 & 2 (2 years apart, not twins!!), but the exact opposite happened. Life got crazy! Work, family, friends, travel, volunteering, being healthy … she struggled to find time for all the pieces of pie that needed her. Sometimes work took a bigger piece and the husband and kids pieces were smaller and sometimes being a mom took the entire pie leaving no ‘me-time’ piece. It was a constant balancing act and continues to be as life keeps throwing new challenges at her.
This blog is to share the things that she cares about and has learned along the way (and is still learning), raising kids with ADHD, trying to keep experiencing life and not lose yourself, aging not so gracefully, living a downhome life, giving back, trying to be healthy when you love chips and wine, and much more.
About Paige McEachren
Paige McEachren worked for 17 years as a Corporate Communications Manager for world-leading technology and Pharmaceutical companies until she decided in 2015 to leave the workplace and stay at home to help her two kids navigate life. One of those kids has severe ADHD, which ensures she doesn’t get bored or miss being in an office – she doesn’t have the time. When not taking care of her kids (3 of them including her husband), she loves to travel, deals with her conflict of loving to bake and wanting to be healthy, challenges herself to try new things (recently to do a Sprint Triathlon), and hopes at the end of every day the kids are alive (asleep in their beds in their messy rooms) and if at all possible was able to carve out a pieces of the pie for herself, no matter how tiny!
