Why Did I Start a Blog?

by brandiann

Welcome to my Blog!

So why did I start this thing?! Well for starters I wanted to document the good, the bad and the funny parts of Motherhood – in the hopes of helping expecting moms and share my experiences.

I still pinch myself everyday knowing I can stay home and raise my baby girl, it has been a dream of mine all my life. With everything in life comes its pros and cons naturally. The pro to being a stay at home mom is the fact that I don’t miss a thing – I get to witness every milestone.

Of course there are also the cons – the endless diaper changing and feedings can be exhausting day in and day out, but to me the biggest con is the loneliness. Sure I have my baby who provides plenty of company, but its the loneliness of adult conversation and connection.

Thank goodness for social media to help me feel a part of the rat race.

I was an only child until I was 11 years old so growing up I learned pretty fast how to entertain myself. Even into adulthood I never minded being alone much. Then I got pregnant and I experienced a loneliness I hadn’t felt before when it came to friendships. When you can’t go out and drink into all hours of the night because you’re growing a life, you end up being pretty unpopular! Surprisingly, that didn’t really bother me too much until the end, when my self-confidence took a bit of a nose dive.

Then my sweet baby cakes arrived.

After careful thought and consideration, my husband and I felt it best I stay home with her. My days were filled with crying and laughter, dirty diapers and wet kisses. It was absolutely fabulous! I love being able to stay with her and watch her grow and take in her new world experiences. It wasn’t until about 5 months later that I really started to miss those adult connections. I had my loving husband who would come home and help take over baby duty shifts. Yes he is an amazing man.

So I divulged into social media and decided to start a blog! I felt this avenue was a perfect outlet for me to document my life as a new mother, make connections with other moms and learn a few things about myself.

So that is why I decided to start a blog!

Welcome to my website and I hope to engage with other like minded moms with entertaining and insightful conversations!
