03 Jan Let the Journey Begin
And so the journey begins…
Welcome to a project that has been in the making since August of last year…yes about 5 months! I won’t overcomplicate things but let’s just say it’s about time!
Becoming a mom of multiples has had a profound effect on my life and I’m talking outside of the myriad of ways becoming a parent at all changes you. The journey, or rather hazing as I sometimes feel it is, that has seemed to occur since my boys were born has opened my eyes to a huge deficit in the realm of parenthood and that is the lack of judgement free parenting and places where we could lift each other up. This deficit has compelled me to get back to something that has meant a lot to me for as long as I can remember and something that has brought me clarity when I needed it most and that one thing is writing.
I’m going to document this story, our story, in my own words, one shit show at a time, and hope that I can be an area of refuge for other moms/parents, especially moms/parents of multiples. In My Own Words is also much bigger than parenting. It’s about illuminating the highs and lows of, well, life. We all do the best we can and are continuous works in progress and need an outlet where we can say, “I’m really not alone.” Also if I can bring any humor to this journey of life we are on, even if it is at my husband’s expense which I can pretty much guarantee you at some point it will be, then my heart will be full.
We are all enough and I can’t wait to travel this road with you!
With immense thanks for your support,
