Me. Where to even start? I had my first and only child at the age of 35years old . Back then I felt old starting a family with my husband. I never did have an urge to have a baby but once my daughter came into this world everything changed. She is our everything.
I feel like any mama or parent can relate the truth of being a first-time mama. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could allow myself to be vulnerable to share some of my "mama experiences" with others. In the end, I find unleashing my truth to be calming and after each reveal of my truth, I feel a little lighter. I am able to breathe. I am able to exhale.
I actually started my first blog in 2017 as someting to do. I realized I enjoyed the connections I was making online and enjoyed just really telling things how they were. Once I unleashed, it was hard to stop.
I am a wife, a mama to a daughter who is 6 years old, a mama to my four-legged fur baby. He is the cutest labradoodle. I consider myself a career mom trying to balance work & home life in my forties. Everyday I am grateful, yet every day feels like a struggle too.
I enjoy taking photos of my relationship with my daughter. I am mama who is one and done. Documenting every moment is important to me. I cherish the time I have with my family.
My intention of this blog is to share some of the first years of being a mama. It was a hard first few years. I was in denial. My marriage sufferred, my career suffered and I pretended that everything was under control. I was in denial about post partum depression and having anxiety to the point that I felt I would be having a heart attack.
Now a couple of years has passed and there are much more wins than losses. I feel more like a super mom than a failure.
Thanks for reading my blog. xoxo "Mama Martin"
