I am not what you'd call "in the know" when it comes to parenting... or really life in general.

I am, however, the mom you can talk to when the shit hits the fan. I'm the one to whom you can share your scary thoughts and obsessions, your sadness, and your rage. I know all about the fear, the guilt, the shame, and the worry. I won't judge you because I have been there.
I spent a long time in the dark, sometimes I feel like I'm still there. But I have tools now. Tools that I pick up a lot faster than I used to because I know what works.
If you enjoy following along, if you want to feel less alone, if you like silly GIF's please consider subscribing. xoxo
