RN, BN, MN(s) - Wife. Mom. Nurse. Writer.

Every mom knows life is busy, I get it! I am a married mom of three little kids. I am a registered nurse teaching full time in a bachelor of nursing program. I am also taking graduate school classes for my masters degree and blogging to stay sane through it all! But we cannot take care of our families (or partners, or patients, or students, or coworkers) if we don't first take care of ourselves. Physical health and mental health are so intertwined. This blog is documentation of my journey through motherhood — Lady Gains & Life With Littles — a journey complete with beautiful sunrises, much anticipated sunsets, snacks, spills, and barf bags. The whole frickin' glorious, messy, journey.
