I was supposed to write about motherhood and reinvention this month.
**I am honored to be writing this post in conjunction with 12 wonderfully talented writers willing to share their nitty gritty thoughts on motherhood. Each month we interpret a common theme and share our work with you via the hashtag #NakedMoms. We aren’t actually naked 😉 (sorry!) but we are bearing our souls here on our blogs. Kind or constructive (even argumentative or opinionated!) comments are always appreciated but negative or hurtful ones need not be expressed here. We are in the business of lifting up and supporting other women with our writing as we weave a web of stories and anecdotes from our past, present and future Mommy selves. We hope you enjoy the series and share the stories you love with your own circle of Mom’s- whomever they may be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading.**

Nursing & 1 handed typing, bear w me! I strive less for reinvention than for commitment to who I am and what I love.
Hi Jacquie! I emailed you to see if you had any availability to make a cake next month for my son’s first birthday? Did you receive it? Just want to make sure! Thank you!
You’re absolutely right. Reinvention happens as life happens. Often, the big proclamations of “new me!” don’t last anyway. One day, you’ll run into a friend who’ll say, “You seem so…different.” They’ll talk about how you’ve changed and how awesome you were then, and how much more awesome you are now. That’s the type of reinvention I’m after!
