I never intended to start a blog. I’m not tech-savvy, I don’t tweet, and truthfully the most frequent exposure I have to a “Blog” is the character on Abby’s Flying Fairy School.
But ever since I became a mom two and a half years ago, I feel a strong desire to connect with other moms. I have an almost primal urge to share the daily challenges of motherhood with others, and to listen to their equally funny and frustrating stories about being a mom.
I find that talking to moms is reassuring—like, hey, I’m not crazy! Or if I am, at least I’m not alone!
That’s why I decided to jump into the world of blogging. Not to make a statement, but to connect with other moms like me—moms who struggle just to make it through every day but love every single minute of it.
Hence the subtitle of my blog: It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
The scoop on me: I’m in my early 30s, living in Brooklyn, working part-time for a public relations firm in Manhattan.
The scoop on my family: my precocious, sweet daughter is two-and-a-half (going on twelve) years old. At the moment she’s infatuated with princess stories, animals, dressing up (usually in a getup resembling a movie star/princess/ballerina), and sticking food on her nose and calling it a “mustache.”
My husband, who works full-time in Brooklyn, is the love of my life and my hero.
Neither my husband nor I grew up in New York, which presents a unique set of challenges as we navigate parenthood in the City.
I’m posting this first blog entry in the hopes of connecting with other moms who feel the same way about motherhood as I do—it may not be easy, but it sure is worth it.
