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.
In a sea of negativity and woes surrounding parenthood, we have got to remember there are some major benefits to being a mom!
Balancing a career, parenthood and the rest of your life is more about grace than the relentless attempt to constantly prove yourself worthy.

This year has flown by, each month faster than the last, each day a blur.

The journey is long, and pregnancy and breast feeding are but a short (monumental) blip on the timeline. I want to celebrate that.

I see you trying to navigate the world being both a "big" and a "little" — and also neither a big nor a little.

It is exciting to begin thinking about ME again!

We are ACTUALLY done. But I am still finding the same "what if?" feelings creeping in.
