It felt lonely and like I wasn’t ok as a result of I hadn’t grown up round infants. Being a mom didn’t really feel pure in any respect. Blogs like The Child Cubby’s have been lifelines for me to know that I wasn’t alone and to provide me recommendation or to straight up inform me the way to do sure issues.
I hope that a few of the issues I write can profit different new moms or moms within the thick of all of it like me. I additionally am obsessed with writing (therefore my English levels) and I missed writing continuously like I did in class.
