Meet Caroline, the Other Mom

 

The Full Story

Here's a little about me.

I'm 39 years old.  I grew up in the midwest in the 80s. I went to school for journalism and instead of becoming a writer, I became a flight attendant.  Because I LOVE TO TRAVEL.  I met my husband, we got married and we had two kids--literal Irish twins.  They're born exactly a year apart which was probably the hardest thing I've ever experienced.  Two under two....

We moved to the country, a not so small town in the middle of Connecticut.  We survived the baby years.  And now my kids are in elementary school after a successful navigation of preschools.  Once my older two were off to kindergarten, we missed those sweet baby years and had our third. 

The third time around was SO MUCH EASIER.  Maybe because I'm not pregnant and I don't have another one year old to care for.  But this little guy is a BREEZE.  Which got me thinking.... I have a lot to say.  I have learned a lot and if I'd known then what I'd known now, maybe it would have been a little easier the first two times around. I truly did learn from my mistakes and my style of parenting is LAID BACK.  Except when it comes to sleep & schedules. 

So I started this blog.  And I started freelance writing.  I have been published on Her View From Home, Scary Mommy, Filter Free Parents, TODAY, For Every Mom and others. 


But I also write here about everything and anything.  Because beyond the hard parts of being a parent, I've discovered that motherhood is all about the feelings.  The feelings of love, pride, guilt, fear, joy, sadness... these emotions work their ways into everything.  And I need to dissect those.  All the time. 

Please don't take it too seriously.  Anything.  My writing.  Parenting.  Life.  It's way too much fun and it goes way too fast.  That's one thing I can say for certain!! 

So let me share with you!  Bring some coffee (or wine!) and we can talk anything and everything.

Cheers and happy reading!
