Hi everyone! I am so excited to kick off this journey together. I won’t hide, I put off launching this blog for months. I just kept wondering if it was “worth” it, whether I would really have the time for it and most importantly, would anyone be interested? Well, here we are and it’s done and while I am nervous, I am even more excited. As you may have read in the About B section, throughout my pregnancy I found blogs that would tell me how to cope without sleep, how to stay sane in my sweats, what arguments my hubby and I were going to have, that its OK not to shower and how to deal with limited couple time, etc. To be honest, I was scared shitless of having a little human to take care of based on all this content I was reading.
Don’t get me wrong, I was giddy as hell, however I had already begun mourning my previous life and Parker wasn’t even here yet! But I’ve discovered I want more than that – and that it’s possible to thrive even with a little one in the mix. That’s what I strive to give you all with The Giddy Life: a guide from my own experiences on how to live an even more fulfilled and dynamic personal life with a new baby. I want people to feel empowered, excited and not scared of what is to come. Not to sound too emotional, but positive thought has gone a long way for us. That being said, I was never a big sleeper. I’d always be up by 8am no matter what I did the night before (*cough* partying) or what time I went to bed. Its really the only reason why I still watch Greys Anatomy after all these years, its my Saturday morning pastime while my husband would sleep, like a bear, until I wake him up.
Well folks, that’s it for now. You’ll quickly see that I am an unfiltered, honest and even crude woman. I like to tell things how they are and I tend to have a blunt approach... one thing for sure, I'll keep it real on the Giddy Life. Just to be safe for all the potential beautiful moms that are reading this thinking I am full of shit or that I just got an easy baby. (1) I probably did, I wont hide, Parker is a really chill baby but I did put in A LOT of work upfront (2) I have downs too and I will share them don’t you worry, I am after all just like you... we are all moms at heart which create a bond that no one can ever deny (3) all things on the giddy life are my experiences and opinions, no one should take this as gospel or personally for that matter. Know that I am a feminist at heart and support all women in all endeavours and I hope this blog will be a source of release, ideas, hacks, inspiration, a good laugh, something to read at 2am ;) but most of all, I hope this blog helps you stay in tune with YOU and to remember you now as an individual AND as a mom!
Bye for now,
