This blog came out of from my experiences. I have had quite the journey into motherhood. And I am happy to say that after 3 years of trying and fertility treatments and pregnancy loss, our son arrived. I'm so glad that you've joined me to discuss the journey and every stepping stone along the way.
Thank you so much for your interest in my journey and hopefully it can make you feel less alone, which does happen from time to time during our journeys into motherhood and beyond.

I have wanted to write since I was a little girl. I would spend hours reading these amazing stories, falling asleep with wonderful worlds dancing through my mind and into my dreams. I've always been an avid reader, however it wasn't until around the age of 10 that I started writing. First came diary entries about everyday life, mixed with hopes and dreams. I mean life is tough for a prepubescent young girl who is tired of being a child but is oh so far from becoming a woman. Once I hit high school though, I came into my own. I began writing poems and short stories and even took a stab at play writing in my writing class. This is where my brain kicks into over drive and I just go.
The only thing I've enjoyed more then writing, and being married to the greatest guy around, is being a mom. So here I am, bursting with experiences and ups and downs, wanting so badly to share my experiences with you. Hopefully you will feel less anxiety and stress knowing that someone else also experiences these crazy things. All I want is to share my experiences, have a laugh over a cup of tea and maybe give some pointers on how I navigate the hardest, most rewarding job on the planet. I do so with happiness and a feeling of absolute gratitude every single day, even those days that are extremely tough during these toddler times.
My words will begin where my journey did. Pregnancy and losses, mixed with infertility and heartache. And once we get through that, and we will get through that, we will come out the other side to brave the fun, intense, wonderfully exhausting, over the moon, all consuming trip through my experiences and ideas on motherhood and parenting.
I am so excited to delve into this chapter of my life where I finally feel comfortable to share what I've experienced. To talk about infertility, pregnancy loss, pregnancy in a high risk situation and every step of the journey of motherhood. I want to tackle the newborn and the potty training toddler. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing this and sending it into the universe. Welcome to mommy's mind palace.
