#momlife. A simple hashtag….a crazy lifestyle. In the spirit of it being International Women’s Day, I wanted to lift up my fellow mom’s out there. This life can be straight up CRAY!!! From the complete hectic-ness of first bringing home a baby who, let’s be honest, you have no idea what to do with to operating motorized vehicles and dangerous kitchen utensils on less than 4 hours of sleep to “drowning out”, I mean handling, the 5th meltdown by your toddler in an hour because you won’t let them play in the glass Pyrex cabinet to never again leaving the house without 7 bags, 14 variety of snacks and 3 changes of clothes – it brings about a whole new level of crazy-making you didn’t even know existed. Motherhood is not for the faint of heart. While I only have one kiddo (and another on the way), I can say that I have felt more emotions, more insecurity, more scrutiny and more fear than I’ve felt in my whole life. On the flip side, I’ve also felt the most love, joy, pride and awe that I’ve felt in my whole life.
