I’ve always been an introvert with a generalized anxiety disorder, something which took me many years to figure out. You would think if you struggle with something your whole life, it would be easy to know what it is and how to fix it. But Bruce Willis spent all of The Sixth Sense not knowing he was dead, so maybe not.
When I became I mother, I found myself spending a lot of time on the internet, seeking advice and becoming friends with other moms who were also up at 3:00 am, frantically googling how to make their own baby shampoo out of coconut oil and the pine leaves in their backyard because apparently, commercial shampoo has too many toxins for a baby’s cristal skin; and I finally decided to start a blog and share my own experiences with the world, like an angel.
These are some of the things I’ve discovered in my first two years as a mom, while attempting to balance motherhood, work, and family, and keeping all the crazy on the inside, like a lady.
