A boob addict baby, and mid-potty training toddler who hates pants. Nursing on one side, pumping on the other, attempting to pack up orders, answer emails and sneak in bites of the peanut butter english muffin I made myself but that my toddler keeps insisting he needs (even though He has his own and he refuses to eat it… #toddlerlife).
I’m surprised this spot in the couch doesn’t have a permanent indent yet. It’s one of two spots where I spend most of my days working / nursing / mom-ing and snuggling.
Some of you may have seen where I was featured on HuffPo last week. It was an incredible experience and Taylor was amazing to work with. Since then, her article and my photo from two weeks ago have kind of taken off. These huge media platforms are reporting on my photo, and luckily for the most part I have received really positive feedback. It’s incredibly overwhelming to be in this position, and I’m so thankful to be able to share my truth.
However, there is nothing special about me that deserves any type of praise or acknowledgement - I’m just me. A woman with two children and an ever present rainbow, who struggles more days than not. Who feels anxious and embarrassed and sweats and shakes when put in any type of spotlight. And I am lucky enough to have a heck of a supportive husband to keep things above water when I can’t.
I am 1 in 4. I am 1 in 7. I am 1 in 5.
As many truths as I share, there are more that I don’t.
I am so glad that in our world today, we as people, as women, as mothers can talk more openly about our struggles and our darkness, but we still have a long way to go.
I have been thinking about my “WHY” lately, and shared those thoughts in a new post today, because I'm too wordy for IG ❤️
