I am a twenty-four-year-old content creator who’s obsessed with the most adorable and amusing little girl—my Harlie bug—and equally smitten with my Conny bunny. In all honesty, being a mother was never a part of “the plan” because having a fruitful career in film and television had always been my priority. Nevertheless, I welcomed my unexpected blessing with opened arms. However, I had no idea what I needed or what to expect during pregnancy, labor and delivery, or just parenthood, period.
Fortunately enough, I had a smooth pregnancy and straight-forward delivery, but there was a lot of advice I could’ve used to have better prepared myself for pregnancy precautions, postpartum pain, breastfeeding blues, sleep training struggles, posh product purchases and the overall mind-boggling macrocosm of motherhood.
To channel my anxieties and frustrations as a new mom, I decided to put the many journals I received as maternity gifts to use and write about EVERYTHING—my experiences, emotions, etc.—which, ultimately, lead to the creation of this blog! I wanted to establish an environment that would encourage new parents and enrich seasoned parents. Because parenthood is no walk in the park, we all need a place where we can learn and speak candidly, so by all means, indulge and divulge.
Remember, it takes a village to raise a child. Ergo, embrace this newfound village so that we may nourish each other and grow some brilliant tiny humans!
