One of the hardest parts of motherhood is feeling like life is on pause while you change diapers, get no sleep, and have people question what you do all day!

But I don’t think life and motherhood have to be mutually exclusive. Mothers can pursue goals, interests, and even higher education via online college courses.

One of my goals this year is to develop my creative side. I started going to a quilting group this month, reviving a former hobby! I talk to my son all the time about how Mommy is learning to sew again!

I want my children to see me as a lifelong learner. When children hear parents talking about learning, they internalize the importance of striving for growth in their lives too!

I still would like to pursue another college degree someday. Either a Masters of Fine Arts in writing or perhaps expand my teacher certification into another subject. Taking online college classes would be my preferred choice so I would not have to leave the house and my babies.

I got my first teacher certification via online college courses, because I was interning. Taking classes online helped me earn the maximum amount of credits each semester without the hassle of a set schedule or a commute.

Ivy Bridge College is a great option for moms seeking a college degree. As proof: 50% of their students are mothers! (Probably because of the awesome success coaches who work closely with each student!).

Did you know, people with an Associate’s degree earn an average of 20% more than those with just a high school diploma? And those with a Bachelor’s up to 65% more?!

You can get an Associate’s via Ivy Bridge classes online in as little as 17 months! After obtaining your Associate’s, Ivy Bridge College support services help you transfer to a 4-year school to continue earning your bachelor’s if you desire. Degrees can be obtained in Accounting, Business, IT, Healthcare, even Sports Management to name a few!

With Ivy Bridge College, the best aspect is how they have seven week sessions, so you can work through classes in short periods. Perfect for busy moms! Put the babes to bed, then hop online to boost your brainpower!

I wonder if any of my readers have been considering going back to school? Because I have a great giveaway of a $1,000 tuition discount to Ivy Bridge College! That’s nearly one quarter of a semester paid for!!

    I would love to return to school because I honestly just love learning. I am leaning towards social work.

    I am currently going back to school to get my BS in psychology and then on to get my Masters in early childhood education.
