Parenting

This is Motherhood
What to [really] expect...


It's not as glamorous as I once thought it would be.

It's scary, disgusting, and overwhelming. And some days I wonder why the hell I ever went and got myself knocked up in the first place.

But most days, as I listen to my little boy giggle, or cuddle him close and nuzzle his ear, or gaze at him while he's sleeping, my heart is so completely and utterly full that I don't know how it ever managed to beat before now.

That being said, I've learned that being a parent is the hardest job in the world. It's thankless and exhausting, and every day presents new challenges and opportunities to learn how to be a better Mama.

So some days (instead of showering) I sit down on the couch in my spit up-covered yoga pants and reflect on this incredible journey in an attempt to share some of my wisdom with the world.

Knocked Up
My pregnancy journey...


My son, Ryder Steven, was born on May 5, 2014.

I spent the months leading up to his birth writing weekly letters to him, outlining all the nitty-gritty details of growing a tiny human (really more for my own benefit than for his future horrified post-pubescent review).
