Oh baby…

Oh my sweet Harrison. You my love are a difficult one. I love you nonetheless, but child you wear me OUT. Everyone always talks about how magical and amazing the newborn age is, the first few months, the baby stage. Let me just cut to the chase here, it might be sweet and cute and [...]

No one told me.

No one told me the the hardest part of motherhood would be SLEEP. I mean come on, everyone knows that you will be sleep deprived with a child. I expected it, I knew it was coming, but you can NOT PREPARE. I don't mean that just being tired is the hardest part, the hardest part [...]
