Hello From the Other Side

by Jillian Gordon of "Mamapedia"



I’ve been a mom for close to three months now, which feels like a victory in an odd way. I learn something new each day, but just when I think I might have a handle on it all, there’s a new growing pain to deal with or a milestone on the horizon. That said, I realized the other day (after yet another friend announced her pregnancy) that I did conquer one part of motherhood: nine glorious months of being with child.

Mom's Mental Health Day



The weight of the world. That’s what it feels like.

I have always been able to take on a lot of things in life. Not just multi-tasking with my various projects or jobs, but taking on the supporting role to friends and family. I never mind doing it because if that means I can help loved ones in any way possible, I would welcome the extra burden with open arms…. More
