About Better as Us
Hello fellow mamas! Thanks for checking out Better as Us. This site is a space for you to learn from my trials and tribulations as a new mom. You will gain insights and laughs from my experiences, which I hope will not only help you be the best mom you can be, but also show you that there is no perfect mom. We are all learning and figuring it out together!
I post weekly about my experiences and tips, as well as some yummy recipes from time to time. All of my posts come from what is happening in my own life, whether that be a time that I fell flat on my face, or a time when I rocked motherhood. By doing this, I hope that you can feel supported in whatever stage of motherhood you are in.
I first became a mom in early 2016 when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, Braelynn. My husband and I had been married at that point for three years (and together for eight). We always knew we wanted children, but were always at the “I’m not ready quite yet” phase. What can I say? We enjoyed the double income with no kids. Most of all, we enjoyed spending time with just each other.
That summer, my husband decided to have surgery on his chest for various heart issues he had growing up. That experience made both of us realize that we were done putting off having a family. Braelynn was born in March of 2017. From there, my husband and I decided that it was important for me to stay at home to take care of her. Pregnancy, child birth, and figuring out how to be a mom were some of the hardest things I have ever gone through. I have always had a passion for writing and helping people, seeing as I am a retired middle school teacher, it just made sense to give a go at the blogging thing. I can honestly say, I am so in love with being able to share my experiences with all of you that I don’t think I will ever go back. I hope you enjoy Better as Us as much as I do, and most of all, I hope it helps you in some way along your journey.
