If you are new here, welcome! I’m so excited you are here.
A little background…
I started my blog because I thought, “Surely, I am not the only new mom out there who frequently thinks, ‘I don’t think I’m cut out for this mothering thing at all.’” Or, in my husband’s words, “This kid has taken YEARS off my life!”
You just don’t often hear about The Other Side of mothering – the loneliness of maternity leave and staying at home, the postpartum depression and anxiety issues, the life adjustment it really takes. I didn’t want to feel alone in it anymore. I wanted to have a good laugh about it all – laughter truly is the best medicine.
I also wanted to reclaim some of my creativity and love for writing - to follow my passion and have something of my own.
It has been fabulous.
A little about me – I love to laugh, and I often use self-deprecating humor to get you to like me. I am fiercely loyal, kind-hearted, and open-minded to a fault. However, I am also quick to state my opinion, tell you if I’m tired, or say, “I don’t care.” In other words, I’m pretty honest.
I am also quite proud that the two biggest words in my tag cloud (at the bottom of my page) are GRATITUDE and HUMOR. If this is what you are about, well I think you should stick around.
If you love to laugh and read great writing, then you’ll love me! So, follow, and I’ll follow back.
