Joined 7 years ago from Dallas, TX
As I sat on my sofa very pregnant on bedrest I thought to myself, having a baby will be so easy! She is going to sleep in her bassinet from day one and sleep through the night, she will latch on perfectly, she will be what society depicts a "perfect baby" should be. Well, in my eyes she is 100% perfection, but according to society and Dr.Google she is very high needs with this, this, and that. She is 8 months and I have still not had a nice night of sleep. Last night as I was laying in bed googling everything and anything I could (as well as reading an abundance of books) as I have pretty much done every night since we came home from the hospital, I thought to myself I should share my experience with others because I can never seem to find a baby that has what Stassi has. Which is where the idea of this blog came from! I have had people tell me I should write a blog, but honestly I never took them seriously until last night. I want people to know they are not alone and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Now about me. I am a 28 year old stay at home mom to one beautiful princess named Stassi (stah-c) Isabella, one Maltipoo named Buttons, and a Boston Terrier or Boston terror as I call him named Bentley. I also have a stepdaughter named Keagan who is the reason why I thought my baby would be perfect. She never got into anything, is very independent, slept alone from day one, never had medical issues, slept through the night right away. She is the poster child for societies "perfection". We unfortunately don't get her as much as we would like since she lives in South Carolina, but I've known her throughout her whole life. I am from Houston, TX originally but moved to San Diego, CA when I joined the Navy. I did four years, got out, and went to school for Interior Design. While I was in the Navy I met my husband Justin through mutual friends and 6 years later I'm living the American Dream in Dallas, TX.
I hope this blog can help the lost moms with dark circles under their eyes looking to see if they are alone and if they really need to worry or not. Also I want to give tips and tricks I have found helpful while being a mother.
