mrs. + mama is a blog fuelled by anxiety, depression, and love. When I was pregnant with my twin boys and then postpartum, I struggled with (and still do every so often) bouts of anxiety and depression. I decided to write my story, of how my boys came to be, and this season of my life with twins. I want to document it all, so that I don't forget our experience! I hope that you'll return from time to time to read about how life is going with me and my boys.
I hope that I can connect with other twin mamas, or other mamas who have felt the same feelings I've felt, or who might be feeling lonely. When I was pregnant with my twins, I scoured the internet, trying to find as many twin mama blogs as I could. When I read these blogs, I felt less lonely, I felt reassured, I felt in good company, and I felt comforted knowing that I wasn't going through this journey alone. My hope with this blog is to pay it forward and do the same for someone else out there (whether you're having twins or a singleton, or you already have a house full of kiddos). Or, I hope I can just be a place that you like to stop by every once in awhile for a good read.
I am all about #honestmotherhood. So many social media accounts depict a false image of what motherhood truly is. I am about being balanced, honest, vulnerable, and loving. I want to be authentic and true. I am not a writer by any means. I often ramble on, repeat myself, or forget to use capital letters. But, this is my space, to share MY story, so I ask of you to be kind and remember what our mamas taught us all, If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.
