I’m a proud first time mom of a 5 month old aka TRS’ Mom formerly known as Jillian. I have my PhD in Psychology and I have been working with kids, teens and adults for a decade. Due to my educational background I wasn’t too worried about becoming a mom other than the actual experience of giving birth. Ironically, delivering my baby was much easier than I expected compared to looking after the little person who came along! What I’ve come to realize is that there aren’t any perfect answers when it comes to parenthood. Bummer! Or is it?
This contest intrigued me because I have always enjoyed sharing information with others. I’ve been journaling my mommy experience since trying to become pregnant so this is a great outlet for passing along those nuggets of wisdom. It is my desire to normalize some of the concerns parents have because knowing other people experienced what I was experiencing was my greatest comfort during sleepless nights. While I won’t be blogging as a psychologist I do want to share my personal struggles and triumphs in this journey of mommyhood. This role has been the hardest but most rewarding endeavor I’ve undertaken!
