Hi! You’re probably new here, thanks to Freshly Pressed (gosh!), so I want to say welcome! And thanks, truly, for taking the time to stop by.
I started this blog about nine months ago — sometime around the beginning of my second trimester — realizing that one day I’d wish I could remember all the weird things I thought about being pregnant, especially if I ever started to think I really missed it. Moreover, it was the few moments of open, honest sharing of insights and experiences by the other women in my life — and the strangers online — that provided genuine comfort to me during the most difficult days, before and after Norah A. Babysaurus was born. Which is why I finally decided to start writing it down. On the Internet.
As I chronicle some choice bits of life as an amateur mama, an experienced crafter and a devoted neurotic perfectionist, I can’t promise that I’ll always be optimistic, or brilliant, or charming. But I can promise to always be genuine, polite, and good at spelling. Maybe it’ll bring you some great inspiration. Maybe you’ll just have a small chuckle. Either way, I’d be glad to think that someone, somewhere, someday found it valuable.
So please don’t be a stranger, especially if you think you’ll stick around. Now that you know about me, please tell me about you!
