15 Fun (and Random) Facts About Me

I’ve shared some of the ins and outs of myself before, more so in a professional and/or parent role, so today I thought it would be fun to share a variety of things about me that are a little more fun than the typical fare.

1.I don't have a middle name, which seems weird in the Canadian culture, but is actually quite normal in the Estonian culture......except for my younger sister does have a middle name lol (as do both my kids). It bothered me when I was a kid, but now I think it is kind of cool!

2.I have always known that I wanted to be a mom and have lots of kids.....like since I was 4. I was SOOOO excited when my sister was born (I was 6 then) that I basically told my parents she was my baby and proceeded to take care of her......that is until I entered the teen years and then was so annoyed that she followed me around everywhere

Post-Partum: Mothering the Mother

We need to let go of the 'superwoman' and 'I can do it all' mentality - the one where we bounce right back into our pre-pregnancy body and life - and allow ourselves as new mothers to be 'mothered', so that we can effectively learn how to lean into our new life and way of being as a mother.
