Life with Anna Cockayne

Life with Anna Cockayne is a North-Central Ohio Blogger who talks Lifestyle, Parenting (teen boys), mental health, DIY & crafting, financial topics.

A little nice, little sarcastic, sometimes a great mom, mostly just an okay mom…. still learning how to be a wife!

I've been blogging seriously for probably the past year (but on and off for the past 3-4 years) after taking a year sabbatical after losing my mother to endometrial cancer. I really needed time to figure out life, where we were going as a family, and what my next step was personally. My mom was such a strong woman, one of the many who I've lost over the years, but between my Aunt and My mom, they were the two that really helped define who I am today.

My blog centers around my family blending together after being a single mother for almost 10 years. I talk about raising the boys alone, my personal struggle with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues, and raising a hearing impaired son.

I haven't really discussed too many of my own personal medical problems, so make sure you stick around, because I'm going to start talking about some of the battles I've had to endure over the past several years.

My family recently entered the world of homeschooling, so I focus a little on homeschooling a middle to high school student, how we cope with non-homeschooling family members, how we make sure our son is learning what he needs to succeed in life, and where we have failed and what we learned.
