about

Hey mamas! Thanks so much for checking out my blog. I LOVE writing it! I started after I was asked to post a "Pregnancy Journal" on TheBump.com in July 2009. I realized that there are a lot of crazy things that happen when you are prego - and I figured that with all the women in the world, I certainly couldn't be the only one that this happened to (or at least I hoped not)!

My goal in writing this blog is three-fold: 1. Be 100% honest in sharing the highs and not-so-highs of mommyhood; 2. Connect with other mamas so we can feed off of the support and experiences of each other; and 3. Document these experiences before my mind turns to mommy-mush

I try to post a few times a week, but sometimes that just doesn't happen. If I have 10 minutes free during the day I have to make a choice... blog or take a shower. I weigh how stinky I am or how many times Paige/Deacon puked on me that day against how bad I need to share or vent : )
