First blog post I created this blog because I love my boys more than anything, but lets be honest, on most days they drive me bat shit crazy! I wanted a healthy outlet to talk about my real life and #momlife in general.
Real life started for me when I became pregnant with my first son in 2012, he was born in June of 2013. It was love at first sight, I had no idea that I could love anyone or anything that much. In one month of having my oldest, we found out my mom had a glioblastoma, and was given less than a year to live. I went back to work only 4 weeks postpartum, very big mistake mentally and physically for me. By the end of August I had developed pneumonia and was put in the hospital with chest tubes for 8 days.
Afterwards, I went back to trying to be the, “perfect mommy.” I never asked for help, with anything. I attempted to raise a baby, work part-time, workout, be with my momma through chemo, all the while trying to develop a relationship with my soon to be husband.
Fast forward 14 months and I am pregnant with our second son. Things had finally started to smooth out until my momma died when I was 6 months pregnant. I was with her when she passed, and I was able to hold her hand when she took her last breath, and for that I am eternally grateful.
Losing my momma is another blog for another day. I certainly missed out on any momma help after having babies, but knowing she is no longer suffering, that helps me sleep at night.
