Postpartum Depression In A Nutshell

It may not come as a surprise to learn that another mother has been hit by this mental burden called depression, but it’s something that is entirely misunderstood by everyone, including the ones who suffer from it. I’m not about to go into the reasons why everyone should sympathize with sad and lost mothers, but…

I’m At A Loss

If you’re a regular follower of my mommy blog, you’ll probably be thinking, “Where the hell is she? Why hasn’t she posted? And like, why hasn’t her content been that great?” First of all, back off. My life is busy, m’kay!? I know I’d be confused if I were you. I have a little voice among…
